Re: BA's timming chain area suspect???
ok well, it seams your model was one of the models that had the bottom crank gear with a chemical missing in it and had worn down the teeth on it. now you can go to ford and get it fixed under warranty or do it your self. consider your self lucky you didnt get to hit a valve.
