First of all,you need the removal tool which looks like this.

http://www.etoolcart.com/gmnorthstarwaterpumpsocketast7880.aspx


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.


Just as an aside, the Northstar is a 4.6 , not 4.8.

I need a cadillac seville sts 1998 4.3L & 32


Check for coolant flow at the Purge line,this is a common problem on the Northstar.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.

Can the Head Gaskets be replaced on a 2001 Cadillac Seville STS Northstar without removing the engine? I am thinking about buying one that needs a head gasket replaced.


Yes , but it is very time consuming and if you have never replaced head gaskets before then I would not suggest that this vehicle be your first.

AM TRYING TO LOCATE THE THERMOSTAT IN MY 2001 CADILLAC SEVILLE


Your car probably has the 4.6 northstar. If this is the case the thermostat is in the water pump housing at the drivers side of the engine. follow the lower rad hose to the pump housing and its contained in a black (2 bolt 10 mm) housing.
