  1. V6 Engine Tech (LY7)
    Just got another G8 (V6), everything works fine. Runs and drives perfect except sometimes when I come to a stop my engine dies out and stalls. It starts right back up with no issues and drives like nothing happened. The problem occurs intermittently so sometimes I’ll come to a stop and it’ll be...
  2. G8 Owner's Spotlight
    Hey All, This is my first time on here as I have had decent luck with my G8. 209,000 miles with not many issues other than suspension, alternator and starter. It did have an oil pan leak, but been very good at maintaining with oil changes etc. Recently I noticed rough idle and the car...

    I sold one of my G8's a couple of months ago. Just now getting around to clearing out the garage. All parts are from a G8 GT. I have a Roto-Fab CAI with an oiled filter in pretty good condition. I have all the parts and instruction booklet. I also have an engine cover with a few minor...

    I'm all out of sorts when my car is on the fritz. :whine: It's a 2009 G8 GT. I was on a trip a day ago to pick up some friends from the airport. When I left the airport and merged on to the interstate, I noticed a ticking noise coming from under the hood. The ticking noise was accompanied by...

  6. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    Hey guys. I been having problems with the beauty.:whine: A few weeks ago I had lost about a quart of oil. I have no clue how it lost it. I had checked under the car for leaks and it was bone dry. I'm wondering if it could be the PCV valve or something else that can be causing the problem...

    Nothing super loud but it is now noticble. In the past it was only present for a few seconds upon a cold start. Now it's present all the time. Do I save myself anything by taking the car in NOW to be repaired? Or do I wait for it to fail and just get a new cam too? My opinion is if they're in...

    I finally got done refreshing the converter last week and was ready to go to the track, when I was on the way to check out a shop to look at his twin turbo GTO. As I was heading past a rock quarry some road debris took out my boost controller and the wire got wrapped on the driveshaft luckily...
  10. G8 Talk (V6)
    Why do the G8's make a buzzing noise then a click sound after you turn off the engine? All G8s do this, i was wondering what it is doing it for. ITs real suttle, its actually a pretty cool sound.

    Is it true you can make the G8 run on 4cyl and not all 6? If so, will this give me problems if i do it?

    I notice when I drive the oil pressure increases and holds at around 8 out of 10 bars (estimating). When I stop and idle, I notice the oil pressure gauge decrease to about 1 bar, and stays that way until I start moving again. Its been like this ever since I bought the car. Is this normal? Do...

  15. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    I have noticed that my engine fan is often running after my drive to work in the morning. This typically wouldnt bother me except it has been -5 the last few days and I have not been running the defrost. I am curious if anyone else has noticed this on their G8 or if this is considered...
  16. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    Having braking issues (rotor out of round) so I tried a quick stop (engaged ABS) to seat the pads against the rotors. Instead of winning the rotor/pad lottery, the damn car flat-out stalled. When I started it up again, engine knocked for about 4-6 seconds, then ran normally. WTF? Brand new...
