The 89 Eldorado does NOT use a Northstar engine it is in fact a 4.5 Liter ( 273 cu. in. ) V 8 Cadillac engine. The only special tool you might need , is to take your wrench and grind down the thickness of the wall on the wrench itself so it can fit onto the last bolt closest to the back of the engine holding the water pump into the engine as there is not enough room for a normal thickness wrench to get securely onto that last bolt.

SOURCE: Starter for 94 Cadillac El Dorado, I think.

I don't think you need a battery. Check the battery terminals for corrosion and make sure that they are snug. The clicking sound you hear is the lack of voltage going to the starter solenoid. This could be attributed to a poor connection of a wire, or a starter relay in the fuse panel. There are no special tools required to remove the starter but you can have it bench tested at any Advanced Auto Parts free of charge. Good luck

SOURCE: how do i change the water pump in a 93 cadillac el

I am going to assume you have the northstar engine.

First of all,you need the removal tool which looks like this.

http://www.etoolcart.com/gmnorthstarwaterpumpsocketast7880.aspx


You need to remove the air filter housing and ducting to gain easy access to the pump.

Remove the shield covering the pulley and belt. The belt is easily removed by levering the tensioner pulley.

The water pump is located at the lower radiator hose manifold where you will also find the thermostat.Remove the manifold cover and you will see the water pump.

Insert the removal tool over the pump making sure it is locked in position.You will need to use a breaker bar on the removal tool and turn the tool CLOCKWISE to release the pump (1/4 turn), or if you imagine the breaker bar being vertical, push towards the windscreen of your car,it takes quite a bit of force to unseat the pump hence the use of a breaker bar.

Installing the new pump does not require as much torque as removing the old one.Tighten the new pump to 73 ft.lbs. making sure it is seated properly before tightening.

Don't forget to clean out the water pump housing prior to installing the new pump and don't forget to include a new water pump gasket and housing cover gasket.

It is also a good idea to install a new thermostat while you're at it.

SOURCE: i need to put a new belt so the water pump can

Rotate the idler pulley whichever direction needed to release the tension from the belt,use a breaker bar or maybe a prybar to do this, rotate it as far around as you can hold it and slide the belt off the pulleys, then replace with the new belt by reversing the order you removed it in. You should have a belt routing guide along the front brace under the hood where the hood latch is, if not check your owners manual or go to a auto parts store and look through a repair manual. Good luck and Happy new Year!

SOURCE: replacing the water pump in a 1997 cadillac el

I'm assuming you have the Northstar engine.

My experience on replacing the water pump is with a 1998 STS but this should apply to your car too.

First of all,you will need the Northstar waterpump removal tool, You can get this from most reputable auto part stores.


You need to remove the air filter housing and ducting to gain easy access to the pump.

Remove the shield covering the pulley and belt. The belt is easily removed by levering the tensioner pulley.
