I have a 2004 explorer with timing chain rattle. The left side tentioner keeps losing its prime. I have replaced it twice (yes I pumped it up) and is works fine but if you let the vehicle sit for a few hours the noise is back. When I remove it, it has lost it prime and needs pumped up again. I have replaced it twice with same results. I checked and it has the oil restricter in it. Any help would be appreciatedk
