Did this video help you?

Tracie Nicolosi: My 2003 explorer runs great...motor has pick up n go...its just loud as hell...was told my timing chains needed changed n that it would cost more than the trucks worth...mind u I owe 3400 still on this truck and I'm having a hard time believing that throwing my current motor in the trash and buying a new one is the only affordable option. HELP ME PLZ

Perla Segura: where would the timing tensioner be on a 99 same place?

duke rabbit: mechanic says i have to replace the entire gears and the thermostat housing he says i need the whole timing chain kit charging 500 for labor

Andy Reyes: Are there tensioners on both sides or just on the side shown in the video? The reason I say is because I looked for the tensioners and I got results for a left and a right side. 

Andy Reyes: Are there tensioners on both sides or just on the side shown in the video? The reason I say is because I looked for the tensioners and I got results for a left and a right side. 

Joseph Krone: Everyone's telling me I need to pull the entire motor out of the car?..

Caleb Dowty: I cannot seem to find these parts anywhere...I have looked into rock auto and all they have are expensive kits....I am in Kansas and my 99' Ford Explorer spirt has had this sound for about a year and a half and it's just getting on my nerves so time to fix it...anyone find the tensioner with the part numbers listed?

Juan Ayala: It since like all Ford explorers have this problem, my friend have a 98 and drove it like that for 2 years doing the really load noise when it was cold star and finally came to the END. time change broke!!

SuperIncredible90: I have a problem with my 2002 Ford Explorer V8 4.6L. I first heard rattling and within a week, I was on the freeway, and it shut off. The lights were on, everything worked fine but the engine did not turn over. Every time I try to turn it on completely, it sounds really bad. Like a clacking noise. If you can, go on my page. I posted a video of the noise it makes. Please check it out, you might be my savior! Thanks! 

Plau's Pone Cornur: Where'd you source the parts? Rockauto doesn't seem to have them and i dont want to go to the dealer for them. also whats the P/N. i need these for my 1997 4.0 sohc

dick gazinya: do you have to remove the oil to do this?

0mnomnomz: talk to local ford dealer, i hate going to the stealership as much as the next guy but sometimes it cant be helped

Scott Young: why dont these tensioners use a ratchet to prevent them retracting after they take up the chain slack?

mitchman2100: My 99 Explorer has the exact same problem. Thanks for the video!

TheUnlimited001: Do you have to drain the oil first? So it doesnt use a gasket? Thanks

yellowcow13: Cant wait to see more on this SUV

eang1 stars: Mine makes the rattling when is warm on idle could it be the tensioners or the timing chain?

jmjw8211: Awesome, thanks for doing this video mate

KungfuHeathen: I only get the "pinging-like" noise on hard acceleration, and ONLY at 2500 rpm. Seems to be coming from the right rear. Could this be a possible solution, or just worth a try? Also, is it possible to lost the chain timing when you remove a tensioner? Do you have to set the crankshaft in a certain position before removal? Thanks!

Gary Paul: hi Daniel, I just replaced the tensioners on 2002 4.0L SOHC. They are rattling like hell at a start up, I ran the motor for about 15 minutes trying to get them to fill with oil. How long did your's take? Did you prefill them with oil some how? Thanks

Barry Godshall: Do you have a part # for these ? Where did you purchase them ? thanks

foodtoeat123: I have a ford sport trac with the same engine , it has the same rattling sound as what played in the video . but it sometimes continues after warmed up . could it be the same problem?

tim bow: have to same problem in my 1998 explorier all wheel drive would this be same issuse

Solaris Art Gallery: Any ideas for my 2003 Ford Explorer Sport? I turned the ignition switch on one morning and it started rattling like crazy and then it died. What is wrong with it? I had to have it towed.

jamie knopf: if the guides are broken will changing the tensioner do damage?

Ricardo Gomez: Hello Daniel. Before you changed the tensioner, did the motor have the rattle noise and then the bottom noise disappeared ?

suckingboobies: Thanks for this video man, I've had this problem for a while, just purchased the lower Tensioner, now I need an extension bar.

Jeff Lynn: Is this the same for a 2006 4.0. Thanks for the video you may have save me a bunch of money given the dealer said I should reply the entire timing chain on a explorer with 146k miles

Kevin Rogers: there is a gasket there on the tensioner, its a very very thin metal gasket, u can just a SMALL smout of sealent there

TheMadboater67: what is the part number for the tensioner

kmt5150: He sounds like Owen Wilson..lol

cmccarter2009: The front tensioner is under the intake plenums... Yes, plenums!! There is a TSB recall kit called 00M12. Its the upper and lower intake gaskets, front tensioner, oil galley plug and an oil restrictor.

0mnomnomz: Most useful and informative video on this issue, great work and thank you so much! +1 !!

RoadRacerGT: Nice film Daniel....I am going to do my 02 Ranger and use a 1-1/16" socket .....it is 26.99mm...Thanks for the how to.

Marc99GT: Nice Job. I am going to replace these on the 02 I just purchased.

Walter Witherspoon: Hope mines be simple as you made it seem. My rattling is very severe to the point that its almost unbearable..
