    2000 Eddie Bauer 4.0L SOHC engine life.

    has my sohc had a replacement timing chain?

    Timing belt I'm the original owner of a 98 EB with 161,000 mi. Have never changed the timing belt. Runs fine no chatter. Don't intend to do it in the future either.

    gas consumtition

    replacement power antennae mast and blown sub
