Hello All,

This may be a dumb question but I need to drain the oil before replacing the rear passenger side timing chain tensioner and the front driver side timing chain tensioner, correct?

It would be a good idea afterwards but it's not "manditory"

HELP ME PLEASE!! My Uncle is working on my explorer and has everything torn down. he is replacing the timing chain, cassettes, and guides. But we dont know what or how to set the time on it. It had jumped time and had a lot of slack when he got to it, so is there a factory setting for time or can any tell us what to set it to?
