For starters, the service manual says the trouble is on "bank #2" (drivers side). It pretty much says that the chain controlling the cams on that cylinder head, has allowed the 2 cams to rotate to a position other than what the engine knows they should be in. Once the engine senses that they have exceeded the allowable amount, the ECM will record that P0009 code. P0008 is what would be set if it were the #1 bank doing this. After a reset has been performed, it will turn on that fault, when it see's the same problem on 2 consecutive drive cycles. It can also turn off the light *if* you have 3 consecutive drive cycles, where it did not see any problem. You might be in that good/bad pattern right now. It also says that the problem could be caused by a faulty chain tension-er vs the chain itself. But a teardown my be in order, if it gets worse. Other members have talked about a complete kit for doing the job, and they posted the brand name used. Maybe they will read about your condition, an post up what they know.
