If your 1997 Ford Taurus makes a loud noise when you let off the gas in Park could it be the timing chain?

Hello, my suggestion would be just opening the hood when the noise goes on. Try to locate where the noise comes from. I have similar problem with my Taurus 2000 SE. It occasionally makes the noise somewhere under the hood. I sent the car to pep boys today. they were not able to locate the noise because it was quiet . so i have to wait until the noise goes up again and open the hood and see.

Has no belt,, It has a timing chain and gears. Trust me here, Whatever problem that you are having that makes you ask this question. The problemWON'T BE THE CHAIN AND GEARS.

Your question really makes no sense. Normally a timing chain will last the life of the engine as replaced when the engine is rebuilt.

www.nhtsa.gov Could be the timing tensioner about to break. Really sucks when that happens because there is absolutely no room to work on the timing while the motor is in the car. But, it can be done.

A chain. The only engine Toyota makes anymore with a timing belt is the V8 engines in the Trucks, Tunda and Sequoia and 4Runner

You can tell a timing chain is bad when your engine makes a sharp washboard-like sound that increases in intensity when the engine's RPMs increase.
