Help! Timing knock or Exhaust leak?
I'm new to this forum.
I just purchased a 2000 Ranger 5 speed 4x4 with the 3.0. 157000 miles on it. oil pressure is good etc. It was well taken care of by the previous owner.
There is a timing knock or what kind of sounds like an Exhaust leak when the engine is under a load. Acceleration is also a little sluggish. When I have it in my driveway hood up I can't hear the sound when I rev the engine. So as far as I can tell it's not a bearing or valves. Help guys any body know what this might be? cam sensor or ? Any help will be greatly appreciated
