Hi, I have a 2008 Cadillac CTS RWD (I think). I am getting my engine light on with P0008, P0009 and P0017 codes. The car runs well but occationally shuts engine when on reverse with wide turns (and rpm drops to very low before engine stalls). The dealer tried replacing the timing chains for me but all these codes are still there after timing chain replacement. I have no idea what to do now. Could you please help me out?

Funny , a Pontiac Vibe sells for more than a Cadillac of the same year . TheReaper!

Basically, I paid over $600 for the engine check and they replaced the timing belt with no extra costs because that's covered by the warranty and they did say that I will need to replace the engine. If I need to sell it, could you please recommend a platform (dealer? carmax?) as the engine light is on and it's probably difficult to fix it.

me, I would have punted long before this, those cts models are endless money pits at that age. I assume they charged you a ton for that work, but since it didn't fix the problem, I would really force them to fix it free or get my money back and sell the car. Often it requires a new engine to fix that problem and vehicle is not worth that.
