Default Check engine code p0008

Recently my check engine light came on around 118000 Km something around 73000 miles. My odometer is in KM and I don't know how to change it back to miles. I got the code checked and it said P0008 something along the lines of engine system performance bank 1. I noticed that when I had this problem the car saw a drastic decrease in performance. My acceleration was much much slower. I took the car to a Suzuki dealer and they ran tests and told me I needed a new tension chain. they said it was covered in my 7 year 100000 mile power train warranty. I have a 2007 suzuki XL-7. My car is in the shop right now they said it could take a week to fix. They also said I need to change my brake pads so I guess I'll be trying my first brake pad change when I get my car back. Wish me luck. I'll post again when I get my car back to inform if the problem was fixed.

Hey, I had the same issue crop up last August (~65k miles). It took it to the dealer, just about a week to go ahead and replace the timing chains. Problem for me was that it took about 1 - 2 weeks for all the parts to get in. Yes, I noticed a decrease in engine performance when it happened; and was towing a tent-trailer when it first occurred.

To change your km back to standard, I believe there is a setting in the vehicle settings (oil life/tire pressure) area for flipping back and forth. Haven't played with it but think that's where I saw it, just cycle through all the options with the engine off.

Just did my brakes at 75k miles (yesterday) and it took about an hour to complete the all 4. I didn't have the rotors turned, and figured I has about 1/3 of the pad left but got some long trips this summer so wanted good brakes for it.

I got my car back in the morning of today. The tension chain was fixed and the car felt great to drive! Thank you for the advice AnotherGeek. Tomorrow I will try to change my km back to miles.

P0008 SUZUKI - Engine Positions System Performance Bank 1
PDF
1
0 Comments | Add Yours
Possible causes
- Engine mechanical problems
- Incorrect timing chain
- Stretched timing chain
- Failed camshaft actuator or actuator solenoid
When is the code detected?
The ECM detects that both camshafts on either bank of the engine are mis-aligned with the crankshaft for more than 4 seconds or a cumulative of 50 seconds.
Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
P0008 SUZUKI Description
The Engine Control Module (ECM) monitors the position of both camshafts and the crankshaft. The ECM performs a test for misalignment between both camshafts on one bank of the engine and the crankshaft. During the test the ECM learns the position of the camshafts and the crankshaft. While the engine is idling, the ECM compares the position of both the camshafts and the crankshaft with the learned value. The ECM will set the P0008 code if both learned values for one bank of the engine are exceeding a calibrated threshold in the same direction.

Hey...I'm new to this forum...searching information on the same problem. I have an 07 XL7 and have the same code. Taking to Suzuki dealer tomorrow & see how it goes. I have been told by two other shops that is the problem, so i'm hoping Suzuki determines the same & i'm very glad to hear it is covered under warranty. I've had basically the exact same issues everyone else has mentioned with the engine light & now oil change light! 68K miles.
