I have a p0008 code & I'm worried
P0008 CADILLAC - Engine Positions System Performance Bank 1
The ECM detects that both camshafts on either bank of the engine are
mis-aligned with the crankshaft for more than 4 seconds or a cumulative
of 50 seconds.
The Engine Control Module (ECM) monitors the position of both camshafts
and the crankshaft. The ECM performs a test for misalignment between
both camshafts on one bank of the engine and the crankshaft. During the
test the ECM learns the position of the camshafts and the crankshaft.
While the engine is idling, the ECM compares the position of both the
camshafts and the crankshaft with the learned value. The ECM will set
the P0008 code if both learned values for one bank of the engine are
exceeding a calibrated threshold in the same direction.
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Engine mechanical problems
- Incorrect timing chain
- Stretched timing chain
- Failed camshaft actuator or actuator solenoid
There is a factory service bulletin for the following Cadillac models:
2004-2008 Cadillac CTS SRX
2005-2008 Cadillac STS
The service bulletin suggest replacing the primary drive and both secondary drive timing chains. Contact your Cadillac dealer for more information. The repair could still be cover under factory warranty.
Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).
