Possible blend door actuator or broken blend door link problem. Unfortunately the dash must be removed and the heater box must come out for further inspection.

I think you have bent valves due to the broken timing chain.

Try this: Get in your truck, turn the key to ON position (do not start the engine!) and within 3 seconds push the accelerator pedal to the floor and let it back. Turn the key off, than start it and see if it's working good now.

Does the engine reach operating temperature? What's the temp gauge showing after you drove it for a while? It may be just a thermostat and the CEL relates to the long open loop mode.

Make sure the electrical connector is seated in the throttle correctly. Reset the DTC and do a throttle re-learn.
Problem Reported: Internal Transfer Case Problem on the 4WD models
February 27, 2011, 05:22 PM
<p>Ford Escape four wheel drive models may develop an abnormal noise from the <a href="/transfer-case">transfer case</a>. This may sound like a bearing howling first, but will turn into a clicking noise at higher speeds.</p>
<p>The transfer case on these models is notoriously troublesome, and can become damage from normal use, and the sound of the failure is notably close to the noise heard from mud tires on pavement. </p>
<p>To eliminate the noise, the vehicle should be inspected, and, if the transfer case has suffered internal damage, it must be replaced, not rebuilt. </p>
<p>Changing the transfer case fluid on schedule may help, but many failures are before the first fluid change interval. </p>

Our technicians tell us that revised parts are available to correct this concern.</p>
Car Review: 2005 Toyota 4Runner
September 14, 2010, 08:26 PM
I bought tis car new and ever since she served the family well.
I had to wait for it an extra 3 weeks, because I wanted one without the sunroof and leather/electrical seat.
I'm a tech, so I take care of all the maintenance or repair and the car gets all the best - OE or better parts.
Beside the reg. services I replaced the following:
-all tires @ 40K
-front brakes @ 50K
-A/C evaporator @ 55K (that's the reason for 3 stars on the A/C system)
The only thing I miss is an MP3 capable CD player and a switch for the traction control. There are some off-road situations when it would be better off. Overall - it's a great car, I'd buy one again.
