How do you remove the timing chain cover on a 94 Taurus 3.8L that is stuck on the badly corroded studs?

This is similar to a 98 Windstar 3.8 that I helped to replace the timing cover. The studs were heated up with a torch (not a small hand held one for say- soldering), this transfered the heat to the block and (supposedly expanded the holes) then soon as the stud was hot, it was blasted with a chemical fire extinguisher (believe it or not) to "freeze" the stud and in turn make it "smaller". With a pair of vise grips- the 2 frozen studs came out! ! PS- I recommend purchasing the stud kit from the dealer. It will supply you with the correct length studs and attaching hardware....

You may have to cut them off if they are too badly corroded to be removed.

They are exactly that. They normally come from badly corroded galvanised piping or from a hot water tank which is disintergrating from the inside out.

it had ooze on the floor that could be never taken off

"Blow" is kinda vague, but it sure can get badly damaged.

You have to take them to a vet. It would be cruel and probably be done badly if you tried to remove them on your own.

Absolutely, a badly timed engine can run like a heap of S--t

your engine will not run if the timing belt is broken and if it is an interference engine, the valves would hit the pistons and completely ruin the engine; if the belt has skipped a tooth or two, it will run badly

Very carefully, if you mess up slightly you will experience a severe loss of power. If you mess up badly you will destroy your engine. 1) Remove the Fan Cover and then the Fan 2) Loosen the Belts and then remove them 3) Remove the Timing Belt Cover 4) Loosen the Tensioner 5) Pull the old belt off * The most important: 6) Align the Dots with the corresponding Gear 7) Put in the new belt 8) Reverse to put back together

Not really enough information given - however - if they are badly out of adjustment you might be referring to the sound of the valves tapping - OR - you are hearing the noise of pre-ignition - perhaps the timing of the engine is off badly.

Noise coming from the area of the chain and in severe cases it will jump a tooth and the engine will run very badly with no power.

The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library. Yes, or grab a wrench and unbolt it to look for wear to belt i took the bolts out of mine and cut it it off just above the lower pulley, then cut it until i could remove the rest. (but i regret doing this now because i no longer have the timing marks i so badly need!!!!)

Timing belts only get loose if the tensioner is broken. If that happens the belt will slip and your engine will be out of time. It will either not run at all or run very badly. On an interference engine you could have internal engine damage.

Or the Crankshaft sprocket? it fires up but runs really badly, the timing marks all line up perfectly after changing the cam belt

You can clean it, but you cannot remove the pits. If it is badly pitted, you will need to have a gunsmith bore and reline the barrel or replace it.

User Avatar

Wear them without socks, for three days straight, without removing them. After that, when you remove your shoes, they will stink.

User Avatar

If it's not a diesel, it's probably the ignition switch. Older non computer controlled engines can continue to run (badly) after the ignition is shut off due to a very high idle or a badly set timing.

yes badly is an adverb because badly describes how we perform.

The meniscus is cartilage within the structure of the knee. When a meniscus tears badly, it is often necessary to remove it. The operation is called a meniscectomy.
