Hah. Not here to argue with anyone, but as they say the proof is in the pudding. Long story short, dealership replaced the timing chains under warranty at around 75,000 miles. At approximately 30,000 miles later the code (P0008) reappears. Eventually, the same dealership said the timing chains needed to be replaced again at a tune of over $1,800 along with the water pump and some other preventative maintenance stuff which ironically wasn't mentioned the first time around not even as an option to be invoiced and payed separately from the initial warranty work. Eventually, made a nice paper airplane out of the repair estimate and can't recall specifically what was included in the $1800 estimate. Fortunately, the problem was remedied for $150. The P0008 code has not appeared since not even as a pending code. Am not saying this is the case for every P0008 code, but it worked it in this instance. Moreover, was even told by a master technician that I am wasting my money and typically when that code appears... blah blah blah. He wanted $150 just to simply diagnose the vehicle. I said I'd rather throw $150 worth of parts at it instead. Unfortunately, I can not contribute much towards alleviating the problems of the author, since from experience, it's just way too much going on here.
