Engine Mechanical problem
1991 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 66000 miles
i have a 1991 ford explorer with 66,000 original miles on it. Since ive had the explorer ive replaced a number of parts including but not limited to :
fuel pump and filter
valve cover gaskets
air idle control valve
spark plugs and wires.
i have verified that it is indeed getting fuel, spark and air.
now to the problem
when I go to start the engine it will continually spin as if trying to start but never actually cranks up. Ive gotten luck one time and got her to crank but havent been able to since, and the time it did crank I could her a tapping/ticking noise coming from the engine.
i was told by several people that I need to replace my timing chain and tensioner and have my timing set.
but I dont know how to do that nor if that is indeed the porblem.
have the same problem?
