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

How to change timing chain cover on cts 3.2 2003 cadilac


Well I assume that by now, 24 days later you probably have the timing cover changed, but if you don't here's a link, scroll about halfway down to get to the pictures. There's a few hours of work and as long as you've gone as far as to tear the whole front of the motor off the car, you may as well change the timing assembly and water pump. I had the shop change mine, it cost me $700.00 but it was worth it. here you go:

How do you install camshaft and lifters in 2003 Cadillac CTS 3.2 Liter V6 Engine?


Consider purchasing warranted rebuilt cylinder heads from "Cylinder Heads International" for $275.00 each with free return shipping of your cores. If you choose to do the work yourself get a library card which will allow you to free online access to Haynes or Chilton's repair manuals. Or for $27.00 get a one year subscription to "All Data" which has expanded information. Any of the above will have the timing spec's. Don't make the mistake I made trying to do it without borrowing or buying the tool for that purpose.

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.

Timing chain or belt?


The 2002-2006 Camry received the next generation 2.4L 4-cylinder engine (model 2AZ-FE), which combines decent power with excellent fuel economy. This engine does not have a timing belt, it has a chain that does not need to be replaced.
The second choice is very smooth and powerful 3.0-liter 24-valve all-aluminum V6 engine.
Starting from 2004, the 3.3-liter V6 DOHC VVT-i engine is available on SE V6 model.
Both, the 3.0L and 3.3L V6 engines have a timing belt that must be replaced at certain interval
