Re: Headlight Mod for 2001-2010

Bringing this thread back from the dead, I just tried to do the headlight mod on some brand new ebay headlights last night. Got the oven up to 230, and the glue would still not release, yet the...

Re: 4.0 SOHC Timing Chain Still Rattles

Well, update. Rattle slowly but surely came back from the rear timing system. Pulled out that "new" tensioner and it was EMPTY. It had no prime- no oil pressure, just spring pressure. I tried pumping...

Re: 4.0 SOHC Timing Chain Still Rattles

After ten starts since, there has been absolutely no rattle. Fired my truck up today at 20 degrees, zero rattle. It is leaking oil a tiny bit, so I need to get my torque wrench and get it down to 45...

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

I have one last thought regarding me replacing the tensioners and the start-up rattle remaining- I didnít ďprimeĒ the tensioners when I installed them. I didnít pump them full of oil before putting...

Re: 4.0 SOHC Timing Chain Still Rattles

So you guys would say to just drive it until the rattle gets worse or doesn't go away when it's warm?

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.
