Looking for someone who has experience with the 4.0 SOHC VIN E motor,My timing chian is rattling,Ihave heard that is common for these to get worn cassetes guides and tensioners,but you have to remove the oil pan and heads to do this job and the kit is 500.00 dollars,Im trying to find out if there is a way to replace just the tensioners and cassete guides without removing the heads and oil pan,wich involves removing the motor.
