Customer Question

Have a 2008 Cadillac STS V6 AWD. Under load especially up a hill the engine misfires badly. 7000 miles ago the dealer did the timing chain repair. Currently has 76,000 miles. When this problem started they said it had misfire codes for 1 &6. They say they checked plugs and coils but they were OK. Also claimed they could not replicate the issue. All you have to do is floor it or go up a hill of any size and the engine misfires. Thoughts?

I am sorry for the long wait

does the check engine light ever come on ? and its not setting any codes ?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
it comes on. Flashes when misfiring and then stays on. The Chevy dealer where I bought it said the codes were for #1 and #6 but they could not replicate the problem and they claimed the plugs and coil packs were OK.

have you tried another shop ?

or drove the car with them to duplicate the issue and show them it yet ?
