Took my car back from my local dealer today , they have just told me to go to the caddy dealer and they will foot the bill
But the caddy dealer want to do a 'software upgrade' first. As they think this will fix the timing chain p0008 warning.
Been trying to research this but hit a dead end , the only recall/ software upgrade issue I can find is to do with the oil consumption and they make your oil monitor drop quicker.
Has Anyone actually had this so called software upgrade , to rectify the timing chain issue ?
Re: Software Upgrade to rectify timing chain issue?
There is no failure that will prevent a mechanical malfunction due to previous or current owner neglect.
There is an UPDATE that changes the oil life interval to a much less time so the current owner CHECKS and CHANGES their oil more often but its not going to fix its current consumption and ran low on oil issues...
Yes I agree , but this car has been owned by GM for the first 2 years , then privately owned by local garage for the last 4 years and full service history with it.
The engine code just keeps popping up , no noise from front end at all. I am wondering if its a bad sensor.
But what's really worrying me is the software update that they seem to be on about. I have not heard about it or can find anything online about it.
the caddy dealer (who is that new he is not even register as a dealer with cadillac Europe yet) says they have done this update to a few cars and the problem has been rectified. Apparently the tolerances are too slim they say and this just throws the light on.
I think it's the update for the oil monitor that they are confusing this with.
Still it's just taking my time , and not finances now as the dealer I purchased it from is footing the bill.
Maybe this update is UK specific , I just don't know.
But I will be purchasing a new set of chains on my next vacation in FL...... just in case
