Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, so it runs, but makes noise and runs poorly now? Any warning lights on, low oil pressure light on? How many miles on the engine?
Ok do you know what codes are stored now? It is still making engine noise? Have you checked engine oil pressure with a gauge?
Ok need to know since the check engine light is on what code(s) are stored, if he replaced the vct solenoids with the timing chins and phasers, base engine oil pressure controls vct operation and with that many miles you can have a worn main engine bearing causing low oil pressure.
Ok just checking, you are replacing the vct on the noisey side of the engine or both?
You cant change the firing order, the engine may be out of time when the timing chain was replaced, a compression test would tell you if it was.A check for codes will tell you more.
There are marks on the chain links that line up with the cams. one moment

Hello, do you need more help with this concern?
Thats what it sounds like, you can run a compression test to see if its low or tear it down and chck via the youtube video i posted for you to verify timing
Yes, as the timing marks are different on the different side phasers.
