Should I be concerned with timing chain issues?
We've owned a 97 Seville, and after 205,000 miles and putting up with the half case seal leak issue, we thought about upgrading to a 2008 CTS. However i've been reading about the timing chain issues on the 3.6L, and was wondering if it was resolved with the DI version of the engine? If its still an issue, could a shade tree mechanic such as myself be able to tackle such a job? I can usually handle most repair jobs, I have done manifold gaskets a few times on the GM 3800 engine. Haven't fixed the half case seal though because I do NOT have the skill or ability to pull the engine out, and if I have to do that for the 3.6L for the timing chain issue, id rather pass.
Thank you for your input!
