How do I replace the water pump on my Cadillac Deville?


Here the instructions.

  • Take off the plastic cover located near the top of the radiator if present.
  • Remove the protective shield located on top of the belt pulling the water pump. You will need to undo two 10mm nuts and one 10mm bolt.
  • Undo the 10mm nut that holds water pump housing togeter with the oil dipstick.
  • Take off the air intake assembly.
  • Move the PCM computer to one side, ensure that the module is safely placed.
  • Release the belt tensioner using a big flat screwdriver.
  • Remove the serpentine belt from the water pump pulley
  • Remove the upper radiator hose. This is held by a metal clamp. Use plyers to remove the clamp.
  • Remove also the clamp from the thermostat housing bypass hose, without removing the hose (you have to bleed coolant first).
  • Unscrew the four 10mm bolts that hold the water pump housing and letcoolant drain from water pump plug. At this point you can also removethe lower radiator hose to drain faster.
  • After coolant drains remove the water pump housing.
  • At this point you have to use a special Water Pump removal tool onwater pump cand turn clockwise until the pump is sliding off thehousing.
  • Remove the pump and the o-ring located inside the water pump housing.
  • Clean and grease the area, put a new o-ring and install back water pump housing
  • Install the new water pump using the special tool and following operations in reverse order.

You may need to use sealant tabs from a Cadillac or GM dealer. Here is what you need.
Better going to your local dealer to get the best product for yourCadillac. You will also need a 3/8'' ratchet, socket and extensions

Youmay also need to replace the housing cover gasket. You will need toreplace the O-Ring, that usually comes with the new pump.
When installing new pump you must also ensure that the new pump is aligned correctly,one of the tabs on the pump housing is different and will lock up the pump, so it must bealigned properly while installing.

1994 Caravan 3.0 how to install the water pump

This is a very complex job that should probably be done by a professional. If you really want to do it yourself, I would highly recommend buying a proper manual. The water pump is driven by the timing belt which is underneath the plastic front cover of the engine. To change the pump, you'll have to remove the front (right side) motor mount bracket, the power steering pump, the plastic timing belt cover, the timing belt and tensioner, then the pump, which is mounted to a housing that is held on to a tube that runs under the intake manifold. Quite often the bolts are rusted to the water pump housing and some care is required when separating and replacing the pump and housing.

Replace a water pump need help asap

Jaguar S TYPE 1999 2000 2001 2002 Service Repair Manual They only want 10 bucks for it and it would be easier! The only hope i could find was this posting... Youll need to remove the radiator cowl and the fan and viscous coupling; they all come off in order. Then you need to drain the coolant and take off the hoses going to the thermostat housing which sits on top of the water pump. Theres one bolt in particular right underneath the thermostat housing that almost impossible to access, takes forever. You'll find the bonnet gets in your way too as its forward tilting. Take it off if you can stand the pain. With the thermostat housing removed you can see the water pump; if youre lucky it will come apart easily but more likely youll struggle to get the pulley off and theres hardly any clearance to get at the retaining centre nut. Ignore the book and pull the whole assembly out in one go if you can, dont try to get the pulley off the pump, its a nightmare. Replace the thermostat while your in the pain zone anyway. Reassembly is a straight reversal. The whole thing is a pain in the *** and I'd pay not to do it again. Hope this helps.

Best of luck to ya!

you can pry the engine over.. there will be just enough clearance to get
it passed the frame... just be carefull when prying it over not to slip cause you'll break the water pump on installation if the engine rocks back.

Leaking coolant from a small hole located in the block right under the thermostat housing coolant inlet. we removed housing and gasket replaced gasket and installed, leaks from small hole?

water pump failure, water pump on these run off the timing chain and the timing chain runs in oil, so they could not just put a weep hole on the pump because it would go strait to the oil pan, instead they redirected the coolant from the leaking pump to just below the thermostat housing. And good luck, it's at least a 6 hour job on these. Brandon-MO

Do I have to remove the whole power steering to install water pump?

I think on that model you have to remove the power steering pump pulley first before you can get to the rest of the power steering pump mounting bolts.
You can rent a special puller / installer from one from your local auto parts store.
Once you have pulled the pulley and removed the pump mounting bolts,just drop the whole pump unit with the hoses attached out of the way of the water pump.
Good Luck.
