Angry The hell's wrong with my car?!

Saturday I got a CEL. Went to Autozone got the code p0008. I Immediately called a dealership and set up an appointment for today (Monday) at 9AM. I went to drive my car to the dealership today and the light was off. I decided to still bring it in to have them look at it. Now after 6 hours of waiting I get a call back saying they need to keep the car and check the engine. They said that everything should be covered under my warranty and that I will get a rental.

I'm just sad. I want my Camaro back. How long does it take to fix a p0008 code and will it really be covered under my warranty?!

Maybe the dreaded V6 timing chain issue (stretch).

The LLT engines have a known issue with the timing chains pre-maturely "stretching". I had to have mine replace at around 54k. Luckily, it usually is cover by warranty, though I have heard that some dealerships have tried to blame it on not changing the oil to spec or letting the oil run low. Mine saw the code and repaired it with no questions asked. There are lots of links to this issue and the LLT 3.6 engines.

Sorry to hear that. Hope it turns out okay.

On a side note, I have used Auto Zone on several occasions with mediocre results...

The chains where upgraded to correct the issue in late 2011. So you should be ok.

Haha, that's funny. I'm literally at 54k right now. Anyway thought, I asked the dealership about 3 maybe 4 times and they said it's defiantly under my powertrain. How long until I get my Camaro back? they have been working on it since 10AM today and will keep it until it's fixed.

Thank you, so far the guy I talked to seemed to make me happy. As long as I keep my money in my wallet I will be happy. The dealership I'm at is Gateway Chevrolet in Fargo, ND. The guy I'm talking to is Mike L from Service.

Thanks for all the replys guys. Not going to lie. Today made me question my loyalty to Chevy. But now I am feeling better after hearing my powertrain would cover it. I'm also glad to see that William R. from customer care commented on this thread. I'll let you guys know what happens.

Don't even worry. Your dealer has made more progress on your car in a day than mine did in 2 weeks. I took my SS in to get the lifters replaced and they ended up keeping it for 3 freaking weeks and then scratching my car.

Too many chains failing, we need an extended warranty!

You aren't going to see a warranty extension. The fight club formula applies here.

Just got my Camaro back! Ended up paying a total of $11 for gas for the rental car! Although this dealership did overcharge me for something once they did a good job this time. Although I did have a VERY low mpg when I got my car back so I think when they did test driving they may have been accelerating a little fast. I did notice there was a lot of college kids and one of them was driving my car >:( Oh well, just glad I have it back and that the warrenty covered it.
