    When does it overheat? idle and low speed or cruising speed, or right away?

Maybe the water pump wasnt the problem to begin with. if the engine temperature only goes up when you stop the car then most likely it is the FANS that are not engaging to cool the radiator which is a problem with the fan sensor, computer that controls the fans, relay/fuse. I had the same problem on my 1999 cady STS coming back from my vacation. the engine temperature would be normal only when I drove the car above 70km/hr because the air passing through the front of the car would cool the radiator. when I slowed down the fans wouldnt start and no air was passing through to cool the rad, hence the engine temperature would start to go to HOT. good luck.

I just replaced my water pump on my 99 Cadillac Seville Sts and it's leaking from the housing unit what does that mean?

it means that all of the old gasket was not removed properly before the new pump and gasket was fitted
it could also mean that one of the bolts is in the wrong hole and is not pulling the pump housing tight

Can my 1999 Cadillac Seville concourse overheat by mixing too much water with antifreeze??

Theoretically yes. Antifreeze has a higher heat capacity than water. Basically, a liter of antifreeze can hold more heat than a liter of water. I dont think it would be enough to cause an overheat though

Causes overheating

If you have done all that, it leaves the water pump and the long does it take for it to overheat? Does it overheat sitting at idle in the driveway?

I have a 91 cadillac sevlle that is over heating and is running ruff

The problem you describe is indicative of 2 likely problems. A bad thermostat or a bad water pump or both. Even though the water pump may not be leaking, the bearings may be bad on the inside and not circulating coolant well enough to cool the engine.
