In this engine, there are two camshafts. The required oil pressure is approximately 10psi to unseat the pin. My truck stalled while entering freeway lanes. This pin is actually what holds the shearing force from turning the sprocket separate from the camshaft. Any advice in dealing with this would be very much appreciated. He has no way of checking the exact pressure when driving on the road.
Valve cover ready for removal. About 2 months ago I bought a 2004 F150 5. I am going back to my trusted Toyota brand! If the camshaft phaser is defective or damaged, incorrect operation of the engine valves may retard the engine's performance. The failure mileage was 100,000. My husband did on ours and now one is broke off inside it and we have to take the head off and all kinds of crazy stuff that's gonna cost a lot of money.
But for them to claim it was improper oil pressure is why the phaser broke sounds a bit absurd. There are many enabling conditions that need to be met before this process starts. While driving 55 mph, the check engine indicator illuminated and the vehicle stalled. Oil pressure has to overcome the force of the spring to actually lift the pin out of the plate. My truck has been making this noise for 95,000 miles. If the phasers were replaced improperly then it could possibly cause engine damage, but it also would not run right once repair was completed.
It sounded good when he drove it off the lot, but by the next day after having the engine running for awhile the noise was back. Here's the internals of the phaser, shown from the back side with the cover plate removed. After doing research I found this was a tbs. Kenny Air intake temperature is used to correct fuel quantity pulse width since air temperature effects air density. About 4 weeks later the phaser went out and basically destroyed his engine. Step 2 — Disconnect and remove electrical components Now, you need to disconnect the electrical wiring that connects the computer to the ignition coils, fuel injection and cam timing components.
Similarly, remove the power steering reservoir bracket from the cylinder head by removing the 2 13mm bolts and 1 18mm bolts. . Since the modular engine uses two camshafts, two cam phasers are used. The outside spring helps return it to default. Not only is this issue very costly to the consumer and the environment it is also an arduous process to be repaired even by someone that is mechanically inclined. Ford has no recall and will do nothing! Here is a handy thread that I found very useful in determining just what is involved with this whole phaser issue.
The vehicle was not repaired. I am fairly certain it is the cam phasers being as it is a light knock and it only occurs after the engine is warm. On three of the six I heard this knocking sound in the engine. Any knowledgeable feedback would be greatly appreciated! Now, 4 days later, I call him to see if he's done, and he said that they were just wrapping it up and I can pick it up tonight. Exhaust gases are inert and do not contain oxygen so they neither increase or decrease the fuel mixture ratio, but merely act as a useless space filler.
While attempting to start the vehicle, the engine turned over but did not start. However, after anywhere from 60,000-100,000 miles, they also cause rough, loud idling due to wear and tear. This will prevent the engine from losing the proper timing while the cam phaser is being replaced. Many are confused about the rattling sounds they hear on light acceleration and many people have been told it is the phasers. For replacing a phaser when the engine is already opened up?!?!? I would like to know what was damaged and how it became damaged before going any further.
A lazy guy would rather fight with that line in the way instead of taking 30 minutes to suck the freon out and remove the line so it wont get broken. Typically, worn phasers create a loud and rough idle. The ford dealer is trying to blame him stating he didn't have adequate oil pressure. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The phaser is actually two halves; one half is connected to the camshaft, one half is connected to the timing chain. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the engine cam, timing sensors, and gears failed and the engine would need to be replaced. The phaser gets it's oil supply directly from the center of the camshaft by a banjo bolt.
