2003 CTS 3.2L threw serpentine belt. Car made no

2003 CTS 3.2L threw serpentine belt. Car made no unsual noise after belt came off. Started it a couple of times but did not drive before I had tensioner and belt replaced and there was no noises coming from the engine. Terrible push-rod knock after tensioner and serpentine belt replacement -- took it to dealer. His mechanic listened and immediately said blown engine. I'm wondering if timing belt could have slipped, no reason for engine to go (129,000 mi). Dealer will investigate belt for $1000, but wants to put in new engine for $6000.

Cadillac cts 2003 3.2l engine the timing belt jumped time i replaced the set it back on the timing marks an it didn't start i a code po 341 so replaced the camshaft position sensor didn't start


The same thing happened to my 03 CTS. The camshaft position sensor code is often thrown for a variety of reasons. In my case somehow the ECM went when the timing belt jumped (after the serpentine belt broke). It was a bear to diagnose but after installing a rebuilt ECM it runs great. (Don't make the mistake I made: the cylinder head gaskets will fit nicely on either side but if not placed on the correct sides you'll block the single oil port which provides engine oil to the head)

My car smells like burning rubber inside- 2003 cadillac CTS, is it safe to drive


look under the car at the exhaust you might have a plastic bag melted to the exhaust causing the smell. you can leave it and let it burn off. You can also jack the car up if you feel comfortable doing so and scrap off as much as you can. That is a common result, if not a bag could be a serpentine belt failing.

Just replaced Serptine Belt now car making loud


It's not uncommon for a new belt to require re-tightening soon after it's been replaced. Check the belt for any excessive slack (shouldn't have more than 1/2 -3/4" ). A loose belt would be one possible cause for the loud noise you describe.

2003 cts will not start - 101,000 miles


it sounds like your alternator let go, therefore your battery is not charging, you will need to investigate further but the rattling would be explained by the alternator mechanically breaking internally and failing to charge the battery resulting in your present situation
