Where is the water pump located?

Here is the complete procedure to replace the pump on your 99 Deville.
You will need to purchase the special water pump removal/installation tool.
1. Drain the cooling system.
2. Remove both radiator hoses
The water pump is on the right hand side of the engine and is driven by a pulley that comes off of one of the overhead cams.
3. remove the air cleaner assembly.
4. remove the pulley guard.
5. loosen the tensioner and take the belt off of the pulley.
If you decide to replace the belt you need to remove the tensioner, remove the studs that the pulley guard came off of and the tensioner will come out.
6. remove the water pump housing cover. the thermostat housing is bolted to this cover. it has (4)10mm bolts that hold it on.
7. using the special tool, turn the water pump clockwise (it twist-locks into the housing) and remove it.
8. clean all sufaces, replace both o-rings.
9. CAREFULLY! install the new pump with the special tool. be careful that you turn it all the way in counter-clockwise but that you don't pull too hard. The pump has steel tabs that lock into grooves in an aluminum housing. if you damage that housing by forcing the pump too hard you will cost yourself a ton of time and money.
10. re-assemble the engine in reverse order as disassembly.
don't forget to use your torque specs. You are working with aluminum castings

Replacing water pump, how doers the fan come off the pump shaft. It looks like it's screwed on with a large hex nut but how can I loosen it without the shaft turning. Frustrated

The fan clutch is threaded onto the water pump. They make a tool to hold the pulley from turning so you can turn the large hex part of the clutch. You can probably rent one for free from a parts store like autozone or the like. Keep in mind some clutches are left hand threads also keeping the belt on the pulley also helps the pulley from spinning also.

Where is the water pump located on a 1998 cadillac deville

The water pump is on the front driver's side of the engine. It is spun by a small belt driven from the end of the cam shaft. You will see a cover up and to the right of the oil dipstick. That covers the pulley. Follow the belt and you will find the water pump. It requires a special tool to replace.

Need to change the water pump do I need any special tools?

You may need a tool (such as a strap wrench or clutch fan tool) and a large wrench to remove the clutch fan from the snout of the water pump, I believe it loosen clockwise.

Location of water pump

It takes a special tool, about $38.00 at NAPA. Very easy to get to the pump, 6 small bolts, it is on the "BACK side" of the motor, opposite end of the main pulleys and belts. Drivers side. the watre pump is driven by a small belt coming off the front cam shaft. easiest water pump I was able to reach , but it takes a special six fingered tool to grab the six lugs, and i belive it is a counter colockwise turn about a 1/8 of a turn, and the pump just falls out. the outer housing of the pump (pump cover) has a special neoprene gasket, which i reused. It was going to be a specail order part, this gasket did not come with the pump. this housing also has the thermostat in it, which has two seprate bolts and a seperate gasket for the thermostat inlet.

How do i remove fan clutch while it is connected to water pump on the vehicle?

There are usually 4 bolts that hold the clutch to the water pump shaft. It's often an awkward process to hold the shaft from turning while you remove the bolts, but it can be done.
There is a tool available to assist in holding the shaft in place. Most auto parts store will allow you to "borrow" the tool if they have one available. I used a pipe wrench when I did it, but the clearance is difficult.
As a note: when you replace the water pump, replace the thermostat at the same time as you will have the needed clearance to reach it.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

These engines are identified as an interference engine and on no account must the crank shaft and cam shaft be moved with the timing belt removed. You no not need to remove the water pump. You need to remove the water pump pulley only (not the water pump). I trust this helps.
