Angry 2002 Ford Ranger Bad Timing Belt I think it is a bad timing chain.

I just bought a 2002 ford ranger 4.0 4x4 from a auction I have two problems.

1. The notes on the auction said bad timing belt. I think it should have stated bad timing chain. The ranger has been in storage from 2008. It has 130,000 miles on it. I will not turn over. Not sure if I should invest the money or sell for parts.

2. I can not get the back doors to open. The latch on the bottom is stuck.

I also have a 2001 ford ranger 4.0 4x4 with and engine that is junk seems like it is running on 4 cyl not 6 cyl. Looking for an engine for this one. Can you use another engine from another ford? I know I need to use a 2001,02,03 engine for the Ranger.

Thank you all for your help.

P.S.

May have to sell both of them

Default Re: 2002 Ford Ranger Bad Timing Belt I think it is a bad timing chain.

03 engine doesn't have an EGR. And these truck have 3 timing chains on them. if your getting into the hassle of pulling engines you might as well spend the little more money instead of replacing chains and snag up some low mileage ones.
