Do I need special tools to change water pump on 2005 cadillac cts


  1. You'll need a tool to release the tension on the serpentine belt and when you need to put the belt back on. Regular standard socket wrenches will suffice for the rest.

Cadillac cts 2003 3.2l engine the timing belt jumped time i replaced the set it back on the timing marks an it didn't start i a code po 341 so replaced the camshaft position sensor didn't start


The same thing happened to my 03 CTS. The camshaft position sensor code is often thrown for a variety of reasons. In my case somehow the ECM went when the timing belt jumped (after the serpentine belt broke). It was a bear to diagnose but after installing a rebuilt ECM it runs great. (Don't make the mistake I made: the cylinder head gaskets will fit nicely on either side but if not placed on the correct sides you'll block the single oil port which provides engine oil to the head)

Will an idler pulley cause the car to smoke and leak coolant or oil


Not likely. Idler pulleys are only for routing of the serpentine belt. If one of your "pulleys" is leaking coolant its likely the water pump, which also has a pulley on it. The smoke is probably leaking coolant burning off a hot part of the engine or exhaust system.

What tell signs when the tension pulley is going out on a 2003 cadillac cts ?And tell me how can i change it myself?


sqealing from the pulley. resistance or binding in the motion of the arm when relieveing tension from the belt. check all other pulleys while the belt is off. wiggle and spin them to check the bearing. there should be very, very little or no latteral movement when wiggled and smooth, noiseless rotation when spun. make sure the fastener is tight. chec torque specs

Replace the serpetine belt


My sincere apologies for the severly delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

I do not know if you still need this information, however I am answering it in case you still do.

Click on the following direct Link. It has A Diagram for your Belt.


Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagram on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating it\moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.


Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

Again my apologies...
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.Com!
