Help! Please. I just got a 2002 explorer with a 4.0l 4x2 that didnt run, so I tore the front of the motor apart to what I thought was a timing chain. The motor is a 2002 4.0l in a explorer and its only 2 wheel drive, its a basic explorer, not a special type model
If it would not start, did you check to see if it was getting spark and fuel to the engine?

I just got a 2002 explorer with a 4.0l 4x2 that didnt run, so I tore the front of the motor apart to the timing chain which I thought there was only 1 timing chain but found three and the timing chain tension was broke, I have no idea how to set these chains back to the right timing now that I have the new tensioner could someone please tell me how to set these chains right, a picture or a diagram might help me if u have one

And maybe a explanation to go with it, theres a small chain at the very bottom then a bigger one connected to that one which connects to what I believe is the timing chain to the cam

I am sorry, I am having trouble with our online manual. If you get a repair manual, it will have where all the timing marks are.

GOOD ADVICE THERE J&N, A MANUAL IS THE VERY BEST HELP, BESIDES HAVING A FORD TECHNICIAN DOING IT FOR FREE AT YOU OWN HOUSE!
SOMETHING IN HERE MIGHT BE HELPFUL, BUT DO VERIFY THEIR CORRECTNESS WITH YOUR MANUAL.....THE MANUAL IS THE MOST TRUST-ABLE....THESE ARE MAYBE A "MONKEY SEE MONKEY DO GUIDE" SOMETIMES THEY LEAVE OUT THINGS LIKE TORQUE SPECS IN THE VIDEOS
