    Another Tensioner Question

    I've been without my Catera for 4 weeks because for 3 days Caddy couldn't figure out why it's been missing and the shop that did the tensioner recall 10,000 miles ago tried for a day but couldn't figure it out either, but QUICKLY pointed out he could get me an engine for $4500 if all else fails. Finally my mechanic found out that the timing belt lost 2 teeth, causing the chaos. My question is should the belt have been changed with the tensioner recall? Thanks...

    Yes, GM usually does that... it should have been.
