Re: 4.0 SOHC Timing Chain Still Rattles

Unbelievably, that was the issue. The rear tensioner never self-primed. I pulled it out, pumped it full of oil, put it back inó no rattle. Crazy, but Iím praying I didnít cause too much damage

Re: 4.0 SOHC Timing Chain Still Rattles

Re: 4.0 SOHC Timing Chain Still Rattles

Re: 4.0 SOHC Timing Chain Still Rattles

That honestly makes me feel so much better, the 2011 rattling for just a tiny bit of time. Thatís how mine is- it goes away almost as soon as it starts.

Re: Coby's '99 Ranger XLT (always a work in progress!)

It was super easy to take care of. Everything matches up exactly how it should, just take your time and it will all swap in great.

Re: Factory Step Bars

Brent, is this because they mount differently or will a set of 4-door bars just look goofy on a two door supercab?


Kelly, I'd like to work a deal out for yours, so I'll private message you
