unfortunately, yes, this will be the timing chain. been a major problem on these cadillacs. You will need to install a new chain. make sure to get if from a gm dealer as they have been updated to prevent this from happening again.

Recall or warranty?????? 64,000
Expert:  Eric replied 6 years ago.

no actual recall on it, but GM has been giving goodwill warranties on these repairs due to high failure rate, some at only 2000 miles.

Skip asking the dealer service manager for warranty coverage on this and ask for the GM area rep's name and number and speak directly to them to get faster response and coverage.
