I know I need a timing chain and new guides as it rattles when driving. So, I need help finding the right timing chain tool for my vehicle. It's a 2000 v6 153 cid 24 valve dohc. I found the timing tools for 2.3 but I have 2.5. Here is link to the tools im considering but don't have the shop manual.

The mechanic wants $700.00 to do it but I've done a timing job and want to do it myself I have experience doing timing but need to find the camshaft guide and timing bolt for this engine.

Hi,

There isn't a specific cam tool for this engine. Proper timing chain alignment is done by aligning the colored links on the timing chain with the marks on the timing sprockets.

If you look below, I provided the directions for the removal and installation of the timing chain. Take a look through them and let me know if you have questions or what I can do to help.

Take care,

Joe
