After replacing my lower engine mount again due to collapsing from being soaked in engine oil, I've discovered a leak coming from the timing area. Looks like I'll be replacing the seals and such, and it seems only proper to replace the timing chain and any other major component inside while I have that area open.

Not sure what I need to buy besides the obvious timing cover gasket set (Fel Pro part TCS45976) and timing cover seal. Can anyone tell me what else is needed to replace while the timing area is open besides the chain and the cover seal? I see different part numbers and dimensions for my model (2002 3.4L base - USA model at currently 167,8xx miles). For example, a 1/2" cover seal and a 3/8" cover seal. I see a timing set that includes the cam, crank, chain and damper, etc.

Just confused slightly on what I need.


Thanks!

If you are leaking, you really shouldn't need to do anything other than the gasket. It's nearly unheard of for these engines to have timing chain issues.

I agree. I would do only the gaskets.

Ok, thanks for the replies; looks like I'll be saving some money as well.

I would like to add my 2 cents here. By your post, I'm assuming you are leaking oil?

And - look in the service manual before you attempt this job. I believe it says you have to remove the oil pan as well.
