    Should have put a rag over the oil pan opening, so things didn't fall in there.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Klaas says:

    You get all the gravy jobs.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Comstock says:

    ni cde to see you used fomofo parts

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Goodie Smalls says:

    The 5.4 and 4.6 motors are the biggest pieces of JUNK Ford ever made especially the timing setup delt with this on 2 different expeditions a f150 and a crown vic not a fan of Ford at all

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Rommens says:

    These are the best jobs. I always loved to take everything apart and put it back together though I always needed a hoist to move the parts. The pistons alone weighed 2000 to 3000 lbs. And then the satisfaction of a good functioning machine…..

    Gotta love it. Even Websters has caved and now lists irregardless as an acceptable substitution for regardless, even though the ir prefix has always indicated negation of thee following word in the past.

    I know you’re a big fan of AVE (who isn’t??) but I was delighted to see an appearance from prudence the safety goat at the start of the vid 👍🏻😁
    Also the iconic Edd China orange latex gloves 🤣
    Great vids as usual, keep up the good work !!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tracey K says:

    For that back oil pump pick up tube I took a box end wrench bigger than the bolt head, put a piece of tape on one side, wrapped a piece of string around the bolt, inserted it into hole, applied a slight bit of pressure on it, pulled the string and the bolt threaded it self in like fricking magic! Place a rag in the oil pan because you will drop that bolt…

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tracey K says:

    All parts good except OEM tensioners, junk, they should have got you Melling tensioners….

    Ray is finally becoming one with the cars he loves to work on

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matheus Andrade says:

    Watching this we can see how much entertainment seeing someone suffering in clicking and unclicking screws…

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cliff Collins says:

    Just a small tip on those oil pick up bolts, you will find getting a good magnet held, (taped) against the block will hold them up for you while you have to fiddle them back into the threads. Love the channel please keep them coming.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Markomyt1 says:

    That oil pickup tube just about killed me when I did my 2006 F150.
    I think that was the hardest part of the entire timing repair.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Yoder says:

    The first time I did this same work on the 3v triton, I was smart enough to know it was the last.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Leon Henson says:

    Ray, on the 5.4 ford and 5.3 & 6.0 Chevy oil pick up tube try using mechanics wire with a wrap and twist on the bolt. Leave a long piece of the wire so you can in-twist it when the bolt is nearly snug. It decreases the chance of dropping the bolt in the pan and also holds enough tension for your gear wrench to work. You may have already tried this but I have used this technique a few times and it works for me and saves tons of time. Don’t forget to have a great day.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brett Davis says:

    I hate doing chains

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Johnson says:

    I have a 97 expedition with the 4.6 liter. It's close to the same wrenching on it as the 5.4 liter. I have right around 250.000 miles on it currently. I didn't change the oil for 110,000 miles and to add to it, it also had external head gasket leak and lower intake plenum leak and heater core plugged. I saw the video of the f150 you did the evap core and had to remove the dash and I had to laugh at my self because I still have screws that go to my dash idk where because I took everything apart. But I finally got around to fixing all the stuff under the hood even tho the cost was greater then the worth of the vehicle but it's the first ford I ever liked so it's sentimental. I just wanted to let you know I applaud your work and patience because I was dropping the f bomb and kick tires. Thanks for your videos and the efforts you put in to make sure us viewers can see what's going on.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mike daytona says:

    when you were cleaning the old crud off how much of it went into the open oil pan?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars johnmart127 says:

    Lol I close my eyes too when I'm trying to do the impossible on my car.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Staszko says:

    Curious, not a hater, but with the exploded guide why wouldn't you drop the oil pan and check the pickup screen?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GARY OSBORNE says:

    I used to think the cost of changing a timing chain was ridiculous. I still do…..only now I think it is ridiculously low rather than ridiculously high.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gary rowan says:

    couple of 5.4 quick tips, when using the valve compressor always press downward on the valve side of the rocker as you compress the spring. I evenly loosen the cams and slide out all of the followers at once. reinstallation is also made with cam raised and take my time retightening the cam. saves hours over using the spring compressor

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BuzzLOLOL says:

    While in there, and with that mileage, should have replaced all the valve springs, as well…

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy says:

    Hey man. Quick question. What spray are you using to clean off the engine parts? I need some of that for my 2007 bimmer 328i

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Oscar Alarcon says:

    Where is your shop

    Good save Ray! 👍👍☝️✌🏻😎
    I always dreaded those even on a bench! Always missing one. 🤣 somewhere??

    Ray you need to buy some surgeons forceps, so much better the pliers.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scorge30 says:

    I have an E350 van that had the same engine with 117k miles that was having the same issues. I got it cheap because the previous owner did not want to pay the $$$$ to have this service done. I yanked the crappy 5.4 out (it got sold on Craigslist along with the original tranny) and dropped in a Cummins 24 valve with an Allison 6-speed transmission. Then I converted the van to 4WD with a kit from U-Joint Offroad. Been a great van ever since.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ExtremeRecluse says:

    This why I never do engine work. Too many things can go wrong. Too many parts to dismantle.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Christopher Saylock says:

    Yeah those cam followers just pop out and in with a brake spring paddle. Same as dodge.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Reynolds says:

    You had me on the edge of my seat. Ear-regardless, lol I enjoyed the lessons. I'm going to be performing the same work next month on my 2007 Lincoln Navigator L

    have you ever thought of working for NASA you should, the wheelbarrow engineers that criticize you are just jealous of you

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tria Maxwell says:

    What have I learned tonight? Cam followers and their keepers suck.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Tetreault says:

    Oh crap… I'm glad shit like the valve keeper coming off happens to professionals too…. Of course if it happened to me, I'd have lost the valve, because that's just how my rotten luck is.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Tetreault says:

    Damn…. Gotta be a friggin contortionist to do the oil pump. Wonder how one of those mobile phone endoscopes would work, so you could at least see what you're doing in there

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray S says:

    a not bad idea one of my techs do at the shop I'm apprenticing at likes to tap all the valves with a little brass hammer before he compresses the spring in order to break it loose from the stem, from what i understand it may help avoid that hell you went through with the keepers coming off
