JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Ford. The Ford Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: I have a 2003 ford explorer with 4.6l v8 engine
. I just replaced the timing chain ( chain, tensioners + guides ). I cranked the engine while the cam covers were still off, and I have very little oil flow on the passenger side. I'd like to know where to look for any sort of blockage.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: i tried an oil "flush", changed oil + filter, still low flow...
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Ford Mechanic should know about your Ford?
Customer: i'm worried that a piece of plastic from the tension guide somehow is blocking something
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
Customer: that's about it
