Default Timing chain rattle. How bad is it.

I have replaced the 2 accessible tensioners and it didnít seem to help at all. I used the cloyes brand. Not sure if that matters. Is my next step to replace the timing chains with a kit(i.e. pull the dang motor?!?!)


I linked a video of the rattle.

Default Re: Timing chain rattle. How bad is it.

I see no one wants to comment on this video but can anyone comment on what timing kit you have used if you have replaced yours. Mine is 2002 xlt 4.0 4x4. I can find aftermarket kits but the more I read reviews on them the less comfortable I am in using them. But ford sure makes it hard to buy from them because I donít see a full kit anywhere. I checked the thread where someone listed all these part numbers to get everything individually but Iím confused on whether or not these will fit mine because they donít all appear to be listed as compatible with my vehicle.
