Problem with Engine And Engine Cooling
Jun 15, 2012 - Lansing, MI - Engine
TIMING CHAINS! CAR WAS PARKED, AND WENT TO START IT AND IT WOULDN'T START. HAD IT TOWED TO DEALER AND THEY TOLD ME IT WAS TIMING CHAINS AND $2800.00. IN DOING SOME RESEARCH, FOUND THAT 2004 - 2006 MODELS ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH THE OIL GETTING TO THE CHAINS PROPERLY, BECAUSE THE HOLE IS TOO SMALL TO LUBRICATE CHAINS. I BUY HIGH END CARS AND TAKE CARE OF THEM. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME A TIMING CHAIN HAS EVER GONE OUT ON ANY OF MY VEHICLES. (BEEN DRIVING 40 SOME YEARS) A MECHANIC HAS TOLD ME THAT THEY ARE SEEING MORE AND MORE OF THEM. I THINK THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL OR AT LEAST SOMEONE LOOKING INTO THIS. ANOTHER PERSON THAT I KNOW OF HAD THEIR 2004 CTS TIMING CHAINS GO OUT WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE FREEWAY AND IT BLEW THE ENGINE.

TL* THE CONTACT OWNS A 2006 CADILLAC SRX. THE CONTACT STATED THAT WHILE ACCELERATING, THE REDUCED POWER TO ENGINE WARNING LIGHT FLASHED ON THE DASHBOARD. THE CONTACT WAS DRIVING 65 MPH WHEN THE VEHICLE SUDDENLY REDUCED SPEED TO 20 MPH, ALMOST CAUSING A CRASH. THE CONTACT STATED THAT ONCE THE VEHICLE WAS SHUT OFF AND RESTARTED, THE VEHICLE WOULD THEN RESET ITSELF AND RESUME NORMALLY. THE CONTACT TOOK THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALER AND THE DEALER WAS UNABLE TO DUPLICATE OR LOCATE THE FAILURE BECAUSE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WAS NOT ILLUMINATED AT THE TIME. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 65,000.

THE TIMING CHAIN/BELT IN 2006 CADILLAC SRX IS DEFECTIVE. IT COULD BE THE CRANK SHAFT RUBBING ON THE TIMING CHAIN. I CALLED GM THERE IS A RECALL FOR 2007 - 2010 THE RESPONSE I RECEIVED WAS HOW LONG DO I EXPECT GM TO OWN MY VEHICLE. I HAVE SPOKE TO SEVERAL CAR DEALERS WHO TELL ME THIS IS A PROBLEM WITH THIS YEAR AND MODEL AND FIXING IT WILL NOT STOP IT FROM HAPPENING AGAIN. THE ESTIMATE FROM THE DEALER IS $3500.00 I AM VERY UPSET OVER THIS.
