Customer Question
2010 Buick Enclave v3.6...

2010 Buick Enclave v3.6 timing chain failed (not snapped as car barely moves, intermittently) - I'm trying to determine if it is interference engine so I know whether I need to replace entire engine or if chain is likely sufficient

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Buick Enclave. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

That is all

It is a non interference engine and is a 11 hour job to replace. You can buy the timing chain kit off ebay for best price. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
