    Thank everyone for replying. I have found out as I described it a diesel sound, was actually a rattling sound from the catalytic converter. I have to have it replaced Monday but lucklily it is still under the emissions warranty of 8 yrs/80,000 mi.

    Thank you for responding. I found out that the diesel sound, as I called it, was a rattling sound that ended up being the catalytic converter. AND it was covered under the warranty 8 years or 80,000 mile emission warranty.

Mine started the making the same problem about a year ago. I own a 2004 SRX AWD V8. It was the ignition coil and because I am a novice at mechanics I had to take it in.

On a side note, the car has 94k on it and has just started to be a little jumpy at idle. I am going to change the wires and plugs in the next week or so. When I get under there and change them I'll keep you posted.

Engine power reduced (came on) 2008 srx wad model


My 2008 SRX also had this problem, at first I would turn the engine off and that would fix the problem, but then both the check engine light and the reduce engine power light would come right back on. I brought it to my local mechanic and the code that came up was for the timing chain or the crank shaft. They checked with cadillac and they had problems with timing chain so that was replaced. It was fine for a few days and is now doing the same exact thing. Can anyone help?

Smoking exhaust


Does the engine smokes blue on cold start?
Does it runs rough at coldstart?

Then check the glowplugs / glow system.

Truck will not cold start.


sounds like the alternator might not be charging the battery. i would see if the alternator was putting out 12-14 volts. you can do this by gettin the truck started and use a multimeter and check the terminals for 12-14 volts if it is under that then the alternator is the problem. also test this by puttin the battery under a load. i.e turn on lights, air and so on
