I hate to tell you this because I know it isn't an easy task changing the water pump but if it is coming between the block and the water pump housing you need to pull it back off and make real sure it is very clean by scraping the old gasket off and putting sealer on the gasket. Every bit of the old gasket has to be removed before putting the new gasket on. You could try and tighten down your bolts a little but be careful not to break the bolt or you then have another problem.

Yes always use gasket sealer on both sides of the gasket. and make sure the old gasket is completely removed but do not use a chisel ar anything as you will leave gouges in the metal and cause a leak. Best to clean it is with some sand paper and just take your time. And just a thougtht but all i use is the black gasket sealer. It seems to wwork the best.

Water leaking out on driver's side behind the water pump on 1997 Cadillac devill


If the hoses are ok (under pressure with car running), the problem is probably the water pump to manifold or impeller to pump seal. You will probably have to replace the pump.

My 1998 deville is now leaking water it got up to 260 so i turned it off n put coolant in it once it had cooled off i went 10 miles in it didnt overheat but it got to 245 n than when i got home my mom told...


this car has a metal coolant line that runs between the engine and the firewall it starts out with a small pin whole leak and then gets bigger this hose is a pain to switch out. i ended up trading my deville in for another car. it might also be the water pump the water pump has a small *** whole that leaks water when the seal goes bad the water pump is also a pain to switch out it requires a special wrench to remove it. the water pump is located behind the drivers side head light next to the dog bone looking motor mount. hope this helps.

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.
