I have a 2008 suzuki XL 7 with the engine light on. I took it to Auto Zone to get checked out. They said it was a code P0008. My timing chain was replaced by the dealer at 80000 miles. I now have 108000 miles on it.

Asked by Jan 21, 2016 at 09:01 PM about the 2008 Suzuki XL-7 Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car has a engine light on saying Code P0008. My timing chain was
recalled and replaced by the dealer at 80000 miles. It had a nylon chain,
now a steel chain. I have 108600 on my car now. Why the light and is the
dealer responsible. They told me with the new chain I can go another
100000 miles.
What do I do.
Thanks

Chains should go a lot longer than a 100k but you may be due for another one. I would definitely be talking to the dealer about that one. 28k on a timing chain is not acceptable.
