Oh way to hit on a topic that will make me rage lol
I had a P0008 code, they replaced the timing chain etc. etc. at the tune of $1344 (I bought parts separate)
A day later the car barely runs, first shop cant figure it out , after a week they give up and send me to GM dealership. The find out that 2 of my camshaft actuators are bad, requiring the engine to be pulled apart again.
They replace all 4 camshaft actuators, and car finally runs great again.
an additional $2200 for the second time around.
I'm not sure the timing chain ever really needed replaced
Ridiculous. I'm still infuriated by the whole situation.
