    Part 1 – Video on diagnosing a 2003 ford explorer with the 4.0 engine that does not start. The vehicle does crank, but does not start.

    Looking forward to this one, Tim. Hey question…I have a 93 Ford explorer V6 I'm thinking of restoring. How many timing chains does it have?

    Is that ticking normal?, the rockers could have fallen out if it got any


    The Ford 4.0 timing chain nightmare. Dang it, what a pain to work on. You have to pull the engine to service the rear chain.

    Hey Tim did Billy Bob get his business going?


    Us who own explorers/Fords avoid buying vehicles with the 4L SOHC like the plaque. 90% of the time if they are for sale it's because they got a quote for replacing the rear timing guides which are plastic, prone to failure, have had several revisions (none of which are use metal that's not going to break) and require pulling the engine.

    I have seen these trucks with over 300k, these are very durable vehicles. Now I'm very curious as to what's going on inside the motor.

    That engine is known for bad timing chains. It was a design flaw by Ford. The older explorers had it quite a bit. Classic symptoms are a loud clatter noise on startup. I've never seen a 2003 have it though. That's why I prefer the v8 models. With the 5.0.


    4 of us are watching. YE BUDDY
