2001 Timing Belt TSB/Recall?
I came across a thread which made it sound like there was/is a recall and/or TSB regarding the timing belt/tensioner/idler pulley for the 2000-2001 Catera. I know there was a recall on the '97-'98 models, but I couldn't determine if the info. regarding the later years is true or not. Can someone confirm? Also, is there a way to find out what recalls and GM-reimbursed service has been done on a car? I bought mine used, and I don't have the complete history. The prior owner did tell me that "$1000 worth of gaskets" were replaced (his words) under warranty because of an oil leak (valve gaskets, probably?). I'd love to be able to confirm what, exactly, was done. Thanks!

Re: 2001 Timing Belt TSB/Recall?
I came across a message in the archives which referred to some work done to a 2000 under campaign 020410 (belt, pulleys, tensioner). Does this campaign also apply to the 2001 model year? If so, do I just call my dealer and ask them to perform this service?
