    Is this the timing chain noise? Possibly something else? 2005 Explorer 4.0L XLT ticking noise

    Hello! I have a 2005 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0 with 4x4. It only has 94k miles, but I suppose that doesn't make it immune to time. The easiest way to describe it is that it sounds like a tractor or a TDI diesel. The ticking is pretty regular once warmed up. It runs absolutely fine, with no...

    08 4.6 with 136k on it. I got it with 60k and it has been religiously maintained in all aspects. Oil & filter every 4-6K with synthetic oil. Today on a 90 mile trip I noticed part way into the trip as I was accelerating on an on-ramp, I heard a faint ticking. The ticking is not there at ANY...

    Engine knocked for 60 seconds then went away.

    So I pulled my 4.0 replaced the timing chains, oil pump, water pump & the passenger side head. I had to replace the head because it developed a crack and started sucking coolant. The truck has 215k miles on it so I decided to pull the engine and replace the head & timing chains.. It's a good...

I did a oil change to it a couple weeks ago and it started making a "knocking noise" so I decided to go till next oil change and open up the filter which had no metal nor did the oil have any that I could notice. It only makes its peak loudness at 900...

    Ticking engine, exhaust in cabin, now it's dead

    I bought a 2000 Explorer XLS 4.0 today. It died before I made it home. It was slow to accelerate at first, and ran and idled a little rough. I've owned nothing but sports cars my whole life and assumed the slow acceleration was normal for a larger vehicle, and didn't think much of the rough...

    Ticking every 10 seconds, causing engine to rev in idle, and on the road??

    In my 1993 Ford Explorer I noticed this over the summer last year, and it went away during the winter. Now that it's above freezing it does it again. In idle it will rev from under 1000 rpms to about 1500-2000 every 10 seconds or so. When I looked underneath the hood the one main belt you can...
