TIMING CHAIN RATTLE

2004 Ford Explorer

Noises problem
2004 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 62000 miles

I have a 2004 ford explorer 4.0 v6 truck. There is a rattle coming from the front of the engine occasionally. I took the drive belt off and it still occurred. Also there is a rough idle occurring now. Do you think the timing tensioner or cover is loose? I have read that ford has a problem with this happening
