Sounds like you may have. You may want to investigate your states lemon laws and get the dealership to do a buy back unless you are really attached to the vehicle.

Take it to another shop and have them do a compression check. If the compression is low, you have found the problem. If the compression is the same as the other cylinders, trade the fuel injector at that cylinder with another cylinder and see if the problem moves. If the problem moves (misfire code in different hole), the injector is bad. If the problem didn't move, and the compression is fine, then you have a vacuum leak on the intake runner to that cylinder, possibly the intake gasket. Print this and give it to your new mechanic.

I have a 100000 miles on my cts took to shop said i need to have the thermosat changed and valve gasket changed wood i need to go ahead and change timeing belt and water pump to


Yes.

Timing belt is rated for 85,000 to 95,000 miles.
You do not want to wait for it to break.

Today's timing belt is being use to drive water pump.

3.2 Liter MPI V6 is modular.
The engine has to come out from the bottom!!!!
It will save you 2-3 hours of labor time to do ALL these work at the same time.
===
Ask your service advisor to replace all heater hose at the same time to avoid trouble.
Inspect all engine and transmission mounts.

This is going to be costly but it will safe the labor charge now to complete all the tasks at the same time.

recommend getting a scan of the OBD II connector for trouble codes, then get back to us. Autozone and Advance have free scanning service. The trouble codes will help us diagnose the specific misfire. With the codes, I can provide you some recommended troubleshooting or repair steps.

My engine light is on in my 2003 Cadillac CTS


sometimes mileage sets off the light just so dealers can get you back in the shop for some of your money,
if you have a autozone store where you are they will check engine codes for free,then you can decide what you want to do.

Of course you know how much the dealer is going to be if you are out of warranty. You can try a few things which may possible help, like getting some of the mopar fuel cleaner or another good fuel cleaner, I've heard a few people resolving the issue that way. If you need a good service manual Promanuals has one relatively inexpensive.

Have the transmission fluid changed/new filter and use a premium synthetic fluid instead of cheap ol generic fluid. Think mobil1 full synthetic for the tranny. If it's never been changed this will make a dramatic difference.
