How do I replace the water pump on my Cadillac Deville?


Hi.

Here the instructions.

  • Take off the plastic cover located near the top of the radiator if present.
  • Remove the protective shield located on top of the belt pulling the water pump. You will need to undo two 10mm nuts and one 10mm bolt.
  • Undo the 10mm nut that holds water pump housing togeter with the oil dipstick.
  • Take off the air intake assembly.
  • Move the PCM computer to one side, ensure that the module is safely placed.
  • Release the belt tensioner using a big flat screwdriver.
  • Remove the serpentine belt from the water pump pulley
  • Remove the upper radiator hose. This is held by a metal clamp. Use plyers to remove the clamp.
  • Remove also the clamp from the thermostat housing bypass hose, without removing the hose (you have to bleed coolant first).
  • Unscrew the four 10mm bolts that hold the water pump housing and letcoolant drain from water pump plug. At this point you can also removethe lower radiator hose to drain faster.
  • After coolant drains remove the water pump housing.
  • At this point you have to use a special Water Pump removal tool onwater pump cand turn clockwise until the pump is sliding off thehousing.
  • Remove the pump and the o-ring located inside the water pump housing.
  • Clean and grease the area, put a new o-ring and install back water pump housing
  • Install the new water pump using the special tool and following operations in reverse order.

You may need to use sealant tabs from a Cadillac or GM dealer. Here is what you need.
Better going to your local dealer to get the best product for yourCadillac. You will also need a 3/8'' ratchet, socket and extensions

Youmay also need to replace the housing cover gasket. You will need toreplace the O-Ring, that usually comes with the new pump.
When installing new pump you must also ensure that the new pump is aligned correctly,one of the tabs on the pump housing is different and will lock up the pump, so it must bealigned properly while installing.

How to change the water pump


Solution 1
First of all,you will need the Northstar waterpump removal tool, You can get this from most reputable auto part stores.


da8a631.gif

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.

Replacing the water pump in a 1997 cadillac el dorado


I'm assuming you have the Northstar engine.

My experience on replacing the water pump is with a 1998 STS but this should apply to your car too.

1997 Dakota v8 water pump replacement steps


Hope this helps!

Common Steps
  1. Disconnect the battery negative cable(s).
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  4. Remove the lower radiator hose (except Diesel).
  5. Disconnect the heater hose from the pump, if fitted.

WARNING Most cooling system hoses use "constant tension" hose clamps. When removing or installing, use a tool designed for servicing this type of clamp. The clamps are stamped with a letter or number on the tongue. If replacement is necessary, use only an OEM clamp with a matching ID.



f90cf3b.gif
Heater hose pipe O-ring (arrow): twist gently when removing or installing; check condition; lubricate with coolant before installing

CAUTION Always wear safety glasses when servicing contact tension clamps.


  1. Always use a new gasket when installing the water pump. Clean mating surfaces thoroughly before installation.
  2. This would be a good time to replace radiator hoses. At least, inspect them carefully for aging or other damage.
  3. If the heater hose pipe was removed, use thread sealant or equivalent on the pipe threads (if threaded), or lubricate any O-rings with coolant before installing.
  4. Check the accessory belt routing against the plate in the engine compartment before starting engine.
  5. Allow the engine to reach operating temperature and check for leaks.

3.9L, 4.7L, 5.2L, 5.9L, 8.0L Gasoline Engines
  1. Carry out the "Common Steps" above.
  2. Remove the upper radiator hose.
  3. Remove the fan and shroud assembly.
  4. On engines except 4.7L, remove the four water pump pulley bolts and remove the pulley.
  5. Remove the heater hose pipe mounting bolt, if fitted.
  6. On engines except 4.7L, loosen the bypass hose clamp at the water pump.
  7. Remove the seven water pump mounting bolts and, on the 4.7L, one nut.

WARNING Bolts may be of different lengths. Be sure to note their locations.


To install:
  1. Reverse the removal procedure.
  2. The 8.0L engine uses an O-ring to seal. Use a new one and lubricate it with petroleum jelly before installation of the pump. Also, use sealant on the threads of the heater hose pipe, position the pipe as shown before installing the pump and tighten the nut to 12 ft. lbs. (16 Nm).
  3. On pushrod engines, connect the bypass hose to the pump while installing it.
  4. Tighten the bolts to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) on pushrod engines, 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) on the 4.7L engine.
  5. Spin pump to ensure the impeller is not rubbing against the timing chain case.
  6. When installing the heater hose pipe, ensure that the slot in the pipe bracket is bearing against the mounting bolt. This will hold the pipe in as far as possible to prevent leaks.
  7. Tighten pulley bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) on V-6 and V-8, 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) on the V-10.
