Q: Timing Belt on 2004 Cadillac CTS

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
What happens if the timing belt breaks. Does it float the valves and ruin the engine?

My Owner's manuel says I have a timing belt that should be replaced at 100,000 and I have a quote for replacing it

I looked in the repair information I have here again and info I have here for the car you listed: (2004 Cadillac CTS V6-3.6L VIN 7) If my information is correct it does not have a timing belt.
You are correct, it does not have timing belt. If in fact it is a 3.6 V-6 it has a timing chain. The 3.6 is another marvel of GM. The timing chain stretches needing replacement. The engine has to be lowered with the sub frame. The labor guide is way off in the time.
