Hey Brian,on your vehicle,it says that the timing belt should be replaced at the same time as water pump,so I would go that route,2 birds with one stone,also it's best to have a pictured step by step guide to do this and you will always have a guide to do repairs,here's a link on buying a repair manual.

You'll need a book with the procedures. The water pump is driven by the timing belt on most models so the timing belt comes off first.

My Nissan overheated.Water went in the motor... Motor does not make any nose or rattle when started.mechanic said the water pump needs to be changed.please explain why water in the motor if it's pump


I can't explain why water in the engine means bad water pump, but... Overheating can certainly be caused by a bad water pump. Water in the cylinders or in the oil after overheating is typically caused by a blown head gasket, and you can't really fix that with a water pump.

I think your mechanic either needs to do more checking, or is trying to get you to do an inexpensive task, so he can discover an expensive one while he has it apart, and you can't take it somewhere else.

Who did the water pump replacement? Replacing the water pump required the removal of the timing chain. If, during the removal and replacement of the timing chain, the camshaft sprockets were not doweled into place, they would need to be rotated to regain proper timing. If the crankshaft was not properly positioned when this was done, or was rotated too far or in the wrong direction, severe damage to the valves and pistons would have occurred. This would result in no compression and the vehicle not starting. I would pull the plugs and do a compression check before anything else. If the compression test fails, you need to pull the engine apart and prepare for some hefty expense for repairs.

Instructions on how to take apart a water pump in a 1995 cadillac eldorado


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.

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.
