Hi - just got wife's early 2008 CTS back (33,298 mi.). She told me it had the Check Engine light on solid yellow. I took it in and they said it needs the 3 timing chains and associated parts (seals etc.) in that [3.6 D/I] engine. I got it back and seems to run fine and it only took ONE DAY to repair - that's fast. Also fyi - have had back driver side shock/strut replaced 2 mo. ago (big clunking noise coming from trunk area), and while it was in for chains, was clunking form reaer passenger side -was a strut connecting piece, not the sturt/shock itself. No noises now, all OK. All good so far - will post if something else happens going forward. Regards

I have had the same problem with the struts and timing chain. Both replaced and now it seems timing chain is acting up again at 120,000 miles.
