I would've started with the coil packs, modules, boots and plugs myself. They give many problems on the quad 4s?.

need to get back to basics, first check engine compression-you say that it's high mileage, so I'd start there-If you have uniform compression across the board, move on to fuel pressure at the top rail-if that is good, with spark it has to run, but make sure your distributor is properly installed (not out 180 degrees).

SOURCE: 19981500 silverado code p1345,i am being told this means i need a new timing chain is this correct

if the distributor is tight no slop in shaft movement up and down ok side to side tight then you need to check dist calabration its actually a cam sensor in the distributor if you hook up a scan tool to it and look at the cam position it will show how far its out it should be -2 or 0 at 1000 rpms you can adjust some by turning the base of the distributor if the timmig chain gets to sloppy you wont get to the correct specs. hope this helps

2009 Cadillac cts p0008 code What does this mean? how to get get an accurate diagnosis without dealership


You don't have to take it to a dealer , there are bunches of other automotive repair shop's . Firestone , pepboys etc.. , plus independent repair shops . That's the place I would go , if I didn't have my own . Local shops that been around 20 years .
What engine did your's come with ? Could have come with a lot of different one's .
Engine Controls and Fuel - 2.8L, 3.0L, 3.2L, or 3.6L
Engine Controls and Fuel - 4.8L, 5.3L, 6.0L, 6.2L, or 7.0L

DTC P0008: Engine Position System Performance Bank 1

Circuit/System Description
The engine control module (ECM) tests for a misalignment between both camshafts on one bank of the engine and the crankshaft. The misalignment would be at an idler sprocket for either bank or at the crankshaft. Once the ECM learns the position of both camshafts on one bank of the engine, the ECM compares the learned values to a reference value. The ECM will set a DTC if both learned values for one bank of the engine are exceeding a calibrated threshold in the same direction.

Diagnostic Aids
• Inspect the engine for any recent engine mechanical repairs. An incorrectly installed secondary timing chain can cause this DTC to set.
• A single failed camshaft actuator or actuator solenoid will not cause this DTC to set. This diagnostic algorithm is designed to detect an alignment condition between a primary intermediate sprocket and the secondary timing chain, or the alignment between a primary intermediate sprocket and the crankshaft. Either condition would cause the camshaft timing for both cams on one bank to be off an equal number of degrees.
• The presence of DTCs P0008 and P0009 along with P0016, P0017, P0018, and P0019 indicates a possible condition with the primary timing chain and the alignment between both intermediate sprockets and the crankshaft. Or, the crankshaft reluctor wheel has moved and is no longer referenced to top dead center (TDC).
• Observe the scan tool CMP Desired, Actual, and Angle Variance parameters before a DTC sets. This may help to isolate whether a condition is specific to one camshaft, one bank, or caused by a condition with the primary crankshaft timing.

P0008
- Engine mechanical problems
- Incorrect timing chain
- Stretched timing chain
- Failed camshaft actuator or actuator solenoid

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.

2008 cadillac throwing p0008 code what does this mean


Hello, this code indicates a problem with the cam timing. in most cases the timing chain is the problem. the engine control module can no longer adjust cam timing to the proper spec while running. this normally requires the timing chain to be replaced. this is covered under the 5 year 100,000 mile warranty thru GM

Hi i have a 2007 dodge caliber with check engine light on- the error code is p008 - can you help me understand the issue?


could that be P0008? I'm not showing the code you've listed, but if you reply to this feed I will help you out If it is the code I listed, then its this , P0008 Engine Position System Performance (Bank 1) This error basically means the engine is out of Sync.The Camshaft and Crankshaft are out of position or at the very least think they are. Engine timing may be out and thus your engine is in danger of complete destruction. At the very least a camshaft sensor maybe down. Take the vehicle to a mechanic so they can check the timing issues

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.

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes
- Engine mechanical problems
- Incorrect timing chain
- Stretched timing chain
- Failed camshaft actuator or actuator solenoid

Tech notes
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).

P0008

DTC P0008: Engine Position System Performance Bank 1

Have seen quite a few of these. Code is refering to a timing issue. CAr may also have a P0009 but most of the time only 8 appears. May want to see a dealer - Cadillac having some timing chain issues on CTS and STS. Could have a powertrain warranty repair....
