Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 170, 00 miles
Overheated the motor and had the cyl heads rebuilt (warped). Reinstalled the heads and it started fine and runs smooth. But there is a clatter coming from inside the valve covers near the timing chain area. I have run it for two hours now and it's not getting any quieter. The chains are tight and looked good when reassembling it. Good oil pressure. The dealer says I need a new motor. I don't need a motor, I just need to fix the immediate noise problem. Your help is appreciated.
have the same problem?
