    Hey everyone I posted about some noises a couple day ago. I’m pretty sure I’ve got a leak in the exhaust. But I still have no clue what this other noise is. I can only hear it in drive and when the engine is at a certain rpm. I’m thinking it’s either my lifters or my valves but it’s just to...

    I have a 2008 CTS AWD vin(V) with the 3.6DI. I have recently done a lot of work to it and I've run into an issue. The timing chain had stretched to the point that I needed to replace it so I did that myself with the Cloyes kit (90753sx) off rock auto. The first start went well after assembly...

    My '08 CTS 3.6DI engine was not happy today. On the way to work, I noticed reduced power and got P0305 (misfire in cylinder 5). After work about 3 miles from home the temps shot up and the ECU shut the engine down to (hopefully) prevent damage. The computer showed P1258 (Engine Coolant...

    Is the AC compressor Mount supposed to touch the sway bar? It seems so wrong but I can't find anything that would give me cause for this.

    Welp I'm about 90% positive my timing chain is about to go. I've stopped driving the car altogether and I'm planning on replacing it in my garage. I have enough mechanical experience to do it, but I don't have the best idea of what I'm delving into. I should have most of the tools. I'm posting...

    Okay guys I hope this is a quick easy question to answer. Im replacing my timing chain and im at the point that i need to remove the valve covers. I remember when i replaced the valve cover gaskets, the driver side valve cover has plenty of room to come off and back on. However the passenger...
  7. SRX 1st Generation Forum - 2004-2009
    I bought this car with 110k miles back in December of 2020. Everything was going fine until it started having an rpm fluctuation of roughly 200-400rpms while driving and a rocking from the cover. I took it in to the shop and they said it was the timing chain. I had them fix it and everything...

    I did compression test the passenger side of engine is all low. Driver side very good. Took off valve covers and driver side chain is loose as heck! The passé side is still tight. Any advice or thoughts I need to get this fixed. 2011 CTs coupe 3.6 rwd

    For starters I’m new here. I’ve looked all over online and I keep getting mixed answers so hopefully someone here has had the same issue and can help me out. I recently bought a 2006 CTS 3.6 with 130,000 miles (got it for $400) I was told when I bought it that they took it to a dealership and...

    Starting having the typical chain rattling about 2 weeks ago, then about a day after that started I believe timing became off because started to have really jerky/stuttering acceleration. Been driving still because this is my only way to and from work. Mechanic looked at it recommended an engine...

    How can I tell which model of the VVT 3.6L I have in my 08’ SRX AWD ? When trying to order a timing chain set there’s a lot of options from Rockauto. They mention a silent upper unit and some come with gears and some don’t. None come with the VVT gear and some have chain link counts. How can I...

    As a result of driving on LPG, I experienced compression leakage during cold run on cyl. #1. Both the inlet valves leaked as a result of burnt valves/seats due to lean mixture burning in cyl.#1 causing a higher combustion temperature. The lean mixture was a result of bleed air being mixed at the...
  14. Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I have a 2011 Cadillac Escalade hybrid 4wd, I had the timing chain replacement yesterday and I packed the old oil pump with Vaseline. After putting the car back together I turned the car on and the oil pump didn’t prime. I tried to prime it by pouring oil from the drivers side access bolt to the...
