Capital City G8
I've been dealing with the P0008 codes for months now. On the first go, my neighbors brother, a GM mechanic, helped me out and replaced my timing chains. He said that they were not bad, but changed them anyway. 3 weeks later I took a P0008 and a P0009 code. Went back and saw my GM guy and he hooked up the Teck2. All checked good and was properly aligned so he reset the computer. A week later I started having an erratic idle followed a week later by another P0008 and P0009 code. Took it back to him and everything still checked good. GM tech support told him to check the reluctor wheel on the crank. Anyone not familiar, the reluctor wheel is used for timing the engine. I would assume its like a crankshaft position sensor. Well sure enough, my reluctor wheel is turning. The only fix is to replace the crank. My Gm guy said he would hook me up with GM discounts and employee pricing. So I had 2 options, the first being a crank with a warranty of 12 month 12,000 miles. The other option for $800. more is a new engine with 100,000 mile warranty. So my 7 year old 78,000 mile car is getting another engine because of some stupid ass wheel on the crankshaft.
