Does 2001 cadillas deville sts have a timing chain and does it need to be replaced


this vehicle does have a timing chain which should have the tensioner checked every 30k miles as metal does also stretch , depending on wear, mileage etc it may be wise to renew the tensioner or even the chain if cannot be set up with the correct play with a new tensioner ,but we are talking 200k + miles for a new chain

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).

Yes, it is possible. Most probable cause is a timing chain guide that is broken or the hydraulic chain tensioner is bad. No way to tell without going into engine. Unfortunately Northstars are not fun for the novice, or even slightly motivated weekend mechanic to tackle.
