Re: eror P0008

..yes, not good. But I do have a question: A recent poster recounted they had P0008, but after awhile the MIL went out and he said it was running fine - and I don't recall a report it returned/got worse/etc. So I wonder if/how likely it's the case that an isolated P0008 is triggered, but goes away and then there really isn't a problem (for awhile...). Or is a single P0008 always a death $entence?

Re: eror P0008

Isn't this the code that appears as a result of the infamous timing chain issue on early versions of the Gen 2 CTS ('08 and '09)? If it's the timing chain there is a special warranty that covers repair up to 10 years / 120k miles. I know all '08s are covered, not sure about the '09s.

Is the 'recall' you're referring to the one that shortened the 'Oil Life' calculation? That won't fix the cam timing problem indicated by these codes. Dealer shouldn't be 'clueless' about this.

As you note, timing chain related repairs are covered by an extended 'warranty', not a 'recall'. Like any 'warranty' it only applies after something goes wrong. So I'm rather sure the answer is 'No'. Just make sure to check your oil often, don't let it get dirty/low.

Hi JRUDDEN,

Generally, in order to utilize this extended warranty there does have to be an indication of a timing chain concern. However, I would be happy to reach out to the dealership on your behalf to discuss your possible options. If you are interested, please send a PM my way and we can discuss this further.

Enjoy your day,

I have a appointment on April 8th for a oil change and tire rotation, and for them to check out how loud my engine is getting. I'm taking it to Berger's in Hazleton pa.

Re: eror P0008

P0008 was the first code that popped on my 2009 SFI. Last time I looked, I was up to 6-7 codes, all related to the timing chain. The good news, it still runs. It's been about a year since the first code. Bad news; it doesn't run well and it's tough to get rid of the car. I'm now at 109,000.
I took it to the the dealer to see if there was any warranty coverage on the chain. They took my $100 to freaking tell me what I already knew; I need a timing chain.... Thanks, Mr. Obvious.

Re: eror P0008

Hi Austin,

My 2009 CTS DI is sitting at Parker Chevrolet in Ashburn, GA. At highway speeds the check engine light came on and noted the car was running at reduced power, I was in the outer Lane in a major rain storm. This was a very dangerous situation as just minutes prior to this the driver wiper broke. I am 77 years old . Luckily I was able to get over all three lanes to the shoulder of the road.
I limped down the shoulder of the road many miles and went to the first GM dealership I could find. Since I have a heart problem, I was forced to rent a car and return to my home in Dunnellon Florida, 300 mile South of Ashburn.
When I left the dealer had not figured out the exact problem, but felt it could be the fuel pump. Would a fuel pump give these symptoms?

Re: eror P0008

Failure code is P0087 and P0089.
I think it odd that this fails around 85,000 miles. I wonder what the manufacture guarantees Cadillac.

COMPLAINT:

REPORT ON THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON THE DASH (WG)
REDUCED ENGINE POWER MESSAGE COMES UP ON THE DIC

CAUSE:

PUMP PRESSURE LOW (6C)

CORRECTION:

CHECK PCM CODES P0087, P0089 SYM 00. CHECK PSB ID: 2120768
REMOVE INTAKE PLENIUM, AND INSPECT WIRING FOR CHAFFING.
NO WIRES CHAFFED, PSB DID NOT FIX CONDITION.
CONTINUE DIAGNOSIS. DESIRED FUEL PRESSURE 500 PSI ACTUAL
FUEL PRESSURE 67 PSI. DIAG HIGH PRESSURE FUEL PUMP FAILURE
NOTE - WHEN ENGINE RUNNING LOW PRESSURE GAUGE FLUTTERING
BETWEEN 20-70 PSI KEY ON ENGINE OFF LOW PRESS 55 PSI.
PART ON RESTRICTION CASE #10325855. ORDER HP PUMP.
REPLACE HIGH PRESSURE FUEL PUMP ON REAR OF LEFT CYL HEAD.
Part# of the pump is 12626234
