My explorer was purchased one month ago through a ford dealer, it is
covered under a warrenty. The noise as they felt was the timing
chain. They replaced the chain and gears yesterday, 3/8/05. I picked
the vehicle up returned home and I still have the noise (Ticking,
rattle, clicking) it sounds as if its coming more from the left side
front of the engine. I have a 3 month 3,000 mile warrenty, but need
to resolve the problem very soon before it expires.
