Engine Locked up - Timing Chain?
Well, after 152k the engine has died. Just lost all power with no bells and whistles, no codes, no smoke - nothing. Even though all maintenance has been performed by local (30607) Cadillac dealer (with XLR mechanic) - SXAPeel is dead. Diagnosis - timing chain broke. Now that this has happened - does the Forum think there is even a remote possibility that I can get the Regional Service Manager to consider replacing the engine of the (previous) Cadillac Flagship, the XLR? I here that she may be in the area soon - should I write her a letter before she arrives or request a face-to-face? ANY extra input will help as I formulate a letter. OR - should I just chalk it up to a very nice car with a dead engine. I'm wide open so no flaming here please.
