In conjunction with the new chain, the number of teeth on the sprockets is also increased, increasing the meshing frequency and further reducing noise and vibration. I'm no mechanic, but sounds major. I remember it as a sweet little motor. It's not often I hear a statement like that. We recommend, no matter what vehicle you drive, stick to the manufacturer recommendations regarding engine oil change intervals and specifications. Really eats up the highway at 70+.
This means you must also have three tensioners, and three sets of timing chain guides. Always double check warranty application before opening up something as critical as the timing covers. Unfortunately, assistance starts at the dealership level. The symptom of one of these is that the engine dies You should be in good shape with the repair. In fact at the time of this writing there is a very skilled mechanic named Nugget that put together 30 minutes of videos, divided into three sections, walking you through the Cadillac timing chain replacement procedure on a 3. All of these camshafts are connected to each other by the chain in question. The sync pulse is used to synchronize the coil firing sequence with the crankshaft position.
They will not perform the operation unless there is proof positive the timing chain is bad. You can refer to your factory service manual for your specific vehicle make and the specific troubleshooting steps. As is the case with many things in life, timing is absolutely critical. Parts Information Important: When ordering the timing chains, please be sure to also order all appropriate gaskets and seals needed to perform the repair properly. Most probable cause is one or more stretched timing chains — Most likely being the bank 1 sub chain.
The camshaft was driven by a quiet belt instead of the usual chain, making it state of the art for the time. The reluctor wheel on the crank shaft may have moved and would require a ned crank shaft replaced. This leaves interpretation of the problem up to them. You can probably borrow a fuel pressure gage from autozone, if you want to do this your self. I recommend you have your fuel pressure checked at the rail and verify proper operation of the fuel pressure regulator. This was a redesigned Chevrolet Straight-6 which featured a Single OverHead Cam and was the base engine in the the Pontiac Tempest. Part Number Description Qty 12599718 Timing Chain, Primary 1 12599716 Timing Chain, Secondary 2 Smaller Pitch Timing Chain The 3.
What causes the P0008 code? It has been suggested that infrequent oil changes, not using the recommended oil, or using bargain oil filters may accelerate chain stretch. Need help with a P0008 code? Though quite rare, this code may also be a case of jumped tooth, as the flexibility of timing belts make them more susceptible to cases of jumping teeth. Either condition would cause the camshaft timing for both cams on one bank to be off an equal number of degrees. Another factor is that Ford has been very, very good to Jaguar. That engine, used in a Euro-sporty version of the Tempest in the late 1960's, provided essentially identical performance and excellent reliability. A high-performance version, called the Sprint, was an option. The same goes to worn tensioners.
There are several different codes that might set in the computer if your chains developed slack. Engine timing may be out and thus your engine is in danger of complete destruction. What repairs can fix the P0008 code? Based upon the results of the testing, possible clearing of the code, and a road test while monitoring the data, further diagnosis may be required. Rich operation can also cause carbon buildup and can cause the converter to wear out prematurely. As an example, I will use code number P0008. Most probable cause is one or more stretched timing chains — Most likely being the bank 1 sub chain.
I don't have an exact spec for your car, but 65 psi is the usual high end for fuel pressure. If the fault returns immediately, the scan tool and information from professional resources should be able to narrow down the problem. Further disassembly will be required to verify that reluctor rings are properly aligned to their respective shafts. I'm not showing the code you've listed, but if you reply to this feed I will help you out If it is the code I listed, then its this , P0008 Engine Position System Performance Bank 1 This error basically means the engine is out of Sync. The Camshaft and Crankshaft are out of position or at the very least think they are. That engine, used in a Euro-sporty version of the Tempest in the late 1960's, provided essentially identical performance and excellent reliability.
In the end the timing cover will have to be removed and the system inspected for damage and wear. It was then that I decided to avoid working on V-12 Jags if at all possible. More often then not, the cause of this code is that there is a transmission problem of some kind. You can print out specific troubleshooting procedures, diagrams, step-by-step istructions, and soforth. Code P0008 refers to the mechanical timing of the engine and the electronics that monitor it. The code typically means that the timing is not aligned thus causing performance issues.
Keep all the service records, and you should have a loaner car covered under warranty while you wait on the repair. Contact your Cadillac dealer for more information. The code is most commonly found in Chevrolet, Subaru, and Suzuki vehicles, although I have seen it in other makes. This may help to isolate whether a condition is specific to one camshaft, one bank, or caused by a condition with the primary crankshaft timing. Were there any other error codes given? Code is refering to a timing issue. It doesn't point to a direct fault in the engine, only a general fault in the transmission.
Generally, the solution is pretty straightforward — alignment of misaligned chains and replacement of worn components. You can probably see the sensor then if you can see into the pipe. This is on top of the stretched chain. You may notice excessive noise from the front of the engine, under the timing covers. How do you troubleshoot code P0008? Moreover, they have the online software called AllData. This diagnostic algorithm is designed to detect an alignment condition between a primary intermediate sprocket and the secondary timing chain, or the alignment between a primary intermediate sprocket and the crankshaft. Should I be worried due to the nature of the repair future problems? For a P0700 the only real solution is to acquire a scan tool that will communicate with the transmission control module.
