Welcome to the forum Owen

2001 Ranger 4.0l has the 4.0l SOHC engine, so you do need to change the timing chain tensioners every 70k miles or so

Rangers used the 4.0l OHV engine from 1990 to 2000, and then the 4.0l SOHC engine from 2001 to 2011

4.0l SOHC is a much different engine and had a timing chain issue, well tensioner issue really, lol

So if you Google: "Ranger 4.0l" you will get mixed results

You have a 3rd generation Ranger, 1998 to 2011
1983-1992 is 1st gen
1993-1997 is 2nd gen

Generations have more to do with size and body parts than mechanical differences
