I am getting ready to order timing kit for 2008 Enclave. What else should I order? Gasket kits? Watched plenty of videos but I dont think any has mentioned gaskets. Please someone reply when you have time.

I doubt you'll find many people here that have DIY'd the timing chain since it's a pretty involved job. Just take a look at the steps and any parts you have to take off that have a gasket should have that gasket replaced since it's 12 years old and likely to crack coming off and not seal well going back on.

You might also want to replace your water pump while you have the engine out. I have a 2010 that I replaced all three of the chains on and while it was "dropped, it was a perfect time to replace the water pump.

Some good info here:

****...I read the article. Yea good info. But then I started reading comments. OMFG Some horror stories. I just bought my wife a 08 enclave on 7/3/2020 for 4400$ its got 155,000 on it. We just took it up the coast of lake Michigan for 5 days. She rides fantastic. What a great roomy comfortable luxurious suv. Knock on wood i dont have such problems. At least its paid for. Those comments have alot of people making payments on a vehicle they cant afford to fix. That is horrible.
