So for a while now, my CTS has started up with a rattling sound.. for like a year now I want to say. I didn’t think of it until I got an OBD II Scanner to read the codes and I feel like I got the “Code of Death” for my CTS (P0008). When I drive it now, whenever I let off now my RPMs like to drop to 1K, then I hear backfire before it raises back up. It’s even happened when I was cruising at 55 MPH and I thought the engine was gonna stall out. Lowkey worried about the engines current condition and scared to drive it now. Any advice that you guys can give?

Like others have said don’t wait and go ahead replace the chains, once they fail completely major engine damage will occur.
