a TSB recall kit called 00M12. Its the upper and lower intake gaskets,

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
Edgar Angeles: 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?
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
