Timing Chain too tight

I took my car to the dealer today to have them look at some things that were bothering me before my warranty ends. One of the items was squeeky type noise from the front of me. I had thought it was the fan blower, and suggested that (based on other threads I read here). They look into the things I took it in for. They came back to me and said the timing chain was too tight and needed to put a new one one with new tensioners (new designed due to this issue). The service writer said they've seen this on V6 Cadillacs too.

Question...has anyone else seen this or had this done on their LLT V6?


I told them they better not mess up my car. It's been running great and better run as good or better when I get it back.


Thoughts/Feedback?

No one else has had theirs replaced?

Surely I'm not the first. :(
