Hi,

What model and engine size is your cadillac?

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
CTS 3.6L
Expert:  Jared D replied 20 days ago.

Replacement of the timing chain on the 3.6l engine is not a very easy job. The book rate is 12.8 hours. Pretty much the whole front of the engine has to come off along with most of the intake manifold and accessories.

What were the trouble codes that came up relating to the timing chain?

Customer: replied 20 days ago.

Yep that sounds like you need a timing chain. Do you plan to tackle it yourself? I have about 10-15 diagrams I can send you if you do.
