Tiiming belt was making weird noises had it checked out by a mechanic he said i should bring it to a cadillac dealership and have it replaced. but he didn't seem to sure if that was it also. but from my understanding the area where the timing belt is is where the noise was coming from

How many miles? belt is recommended at 100K as a maintenance item. Should not have to be changed earlier than that.

140k im not sure if it was changed or not I've only had the car since about 120k.

Probably needs a belt. Sounds like you may also have a trans problem
