Those a pressed in the sheet metal cover.. you can try to put pressure on the water pump pry it away slightly and then use a air rachet if you have one available.. that should work for you ..

I have 1985 cadillac fleetwood brougham that will not start. I replaced fuel pump and it still wont start. But if you spray starter fluid in caberator/fuel injector. It will start but one that runs out ,...


Did you change the fuel filter it maybe plugged. The fuel regulator maybe weak or not working as well. It is definitely a fuel problem. Is the engine carb or throttle body as I am not sure. If it is a carb the pump in the carb maybe weak or if it is a TBI then check and make sure the injectors are opening in key on position before start up. Hope this helps.

I am a girl with a 1985 cad fleetwood brougham and the air flow for defost is not working and i get steam coming out .Is it a heater core? karen


if it is sweet smelling steam, it is a leaking heater core. They are hard to get to. If a small leak, add a can or bottle of stop leak to the radiator or coolant reservoir.

The no air flow to the defrost ducts is confusing since, by law, the system is desgined to fail to defrost if there is a system problem, like a vacuum leak to the heater controls.

Sounds like you have 2 issues. Is the coolant low in the radiator and overflow bottle?

report back.

Severe Over-heating


Hi there. I had a lincoln towncar around the same year do the same thing and it was the waterpump. I doubt its just the gasket since it is overheating all the time now. The pump on mine was for the 5.0(302) it was 28 dollars but it was not real easy to change as far as waterpumps go. I would get a hayes or chiltons manual if your not real farmiliar with these before attempting to change it.
