2001 Ford Ranger 3.0L V6 Timing Chain Issue
\015 I have a 2001 Ford Ranger w/ a 3.0L V6. I am not totally sure what happen to it. One day, (while a friend was driving it) it all of the sudden stopped running. I took it to a garage and the mechanic said that he couldn't get it to turn over and instead of charging me a ton of money to tear it down he suspected it was the timing chain and that I should just replace the entire engine. However I have heard that even if the timing chain went out, that doesnt mean that the valves are bent? Can someone help me determine if this is the case or not?\015\012\015\012Thanks!\015
