Question about 2003 Cadillac CTS
Trying to locate timing marks for replacing timimg belt
SOURCE: My friend owns a 2003
If the timing belt broke, he should take it to have it replaced because theres more than likely to be bent valves in the head. Heads should be checked before putting another timeing belt on. If there is valve damage, then more than likely there damage to the pistons too.

SOURCE: need marks for timimg belt
On the crankshaft gear there is a VERY small dimple that aligns with a mark on the motor. The mark on the motor (a small triangle) is at roughly 11 o'clock. After you line these timing marks up look at the camshaft gear and you will see that on one of the spokes there is a hole. You need to use a mirror to line this hole up with the dimple on the cover that is behind the camshaft gear. (It is at roughly 1 o'clock) If this hole is 180 degrees from where it should be you need to rotate the motor 1 more revolution at the crankshaft and it should now be lined up, or close. Once lined up I like to take a silver (metallic) Sharpie and make my own mark on the camshaft gear and on the backing plate that is behind it. You can make this mark where ever it is convenient for you. As long as you know where your marks line up, that is all that matters. This way I don't have to use the mirror as often.

The 2003 Cadillac CTS 3.2 V6 uses a timing belt. GM recommends that you change your timing belt every 60,000 miles.

TDC compression stroke timing marks
After timing belt is removed, never turn camshaft and crankshaft independently. Do not remove J 42069-1 and the J 42069-2 or other suitable tools while the belt is removed.
