Re: Where is the water pump located on the 2002 Cadillac...
Water pump is located on rear of the engine. faceing the car it is between the radiator and the head. It is driven by a small belt. It is removed by removing a cover plate that has the radiator host and by pass hose connected to it. it takes a special tool to remove and install this item. it is available at most auto stores. approx. 2 hour job and somewhat a hard job . see the haynes manual for this car very detailed on how to change the waterpump. jim

If the housing is leaking, you can replace the gasket but you need to remove upper filler panel, air cleaner assembly, secondary air injection control valve, oil level indicator tube nut, water pump belt shield, the belt, the radiator hose at housing and then the cover.
If you need to replace the water pump, not easy as you need a special tool to remove and insert the pump.

( underhood fuse block ) - Air pump fuse 50A- Air control valve relay- ignition1 fuse 10A ( positive for the relay )The secondary air injection pump relay is located near radiator surge tank.Left front of engine compartiment = Secondary air injection pump
check all hoses going to water pump and make sure they are not leaking, if hoses are not leaking then pump is going out. need to replace asap, if car has northstar engine DO NOT GET IT HOT average cost to replace head gasket on northstar is $2300.00 plus
I've heard up to $4000 on a 1990s or later Cadillac. The transmission might have to be removed.
A used engine can cost $3000.
However, if you are experiencing a seepage problem with antifreeze into a cylinder, for instance, try using a $33 Bar's Leaks solution from your local auto parts store. It may seem expensive for a pour in solution, but I tried it on my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine and it worked.
Actually, Cadillac recommends that a sealant for the antifreeze be used anytime it is flushed or a major cooling component, such as a water pump, is replaced.
The fewl pump relay is located in the bottom part of the fuse box under the hood. It is labeled on the cover where it is. It is one of the big black square s usually taped to the one above it. Cost is about fifteen bucks at advance auto.
