1999 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles
My daughters vehicle has this loud rattling sound sometimes when you put it in gear or sometimes when you stop at a traffic light. I tried the listening with a screwdriver and it seems to transmit this sound thru the alternator, I replaced it, not the noise. I tryed both the idler pulley and belt tensioner pulley, no luck there either. It also throws out po171 and po174 codes every once in a while. If I erase the codes they will reappear. I also cleaned the ma sensor. Could this be the "timing belt tensioner" and if so where can I find info on replacing it?
have the same problem?
