There are two types of air pumps on the cadillac. First one I think of is the smog pump that is belt driven and has large rubber hoses coming off (maybe 1" or so in diameter). The second is the air pump that is electrically powered for the ride levelling in the rear with small plastic air tubes leading to the rear.

I'm not sure which one you have there, but maybe that will help.

The A.I.R. (secondary air) pump is located at the lower left side front of the car. You need to remove the car's front lower shield to get at it, and to the hoses and check valve connected to it.

Trying to figure out what a certain part in the motor I have. Car runs and all but this item is siezed and would like to replace if necessary. It is above the AC Compressor in my 4.2L I-6 XJ6, 1986


Its most likely the smog pump or air pump same thing, alot of people used to disconnect it or when the belt breaks or it siezed up they would not replace it until it had to be smogged.It has to be hooked up and working to pass smog.

I need to replace the smog pump on my 1991 dodge dakota. I looked at the all of the pulleys etc. and can not find which component that I need to loosen and pivot in order to loosen the belt so I can...


If you have the 3.9 V-6, when looking at the engine as you stand in front of your truck. The smog pump is on your right. You will see one bolt running from the front to the rear of the smog pump on the left side. The bolt is about where nine o'clock would be on it if it were a clock. The bolt is a through bolt, and acts as the pivot. It must be loosened and completly removed.
On the right side, at the three o'clock position you will find the adjustment bolt. It comes from the rear of the smog pump to the front bracket. You will see that it does not have a regular looking nut. But, insteed what I call a trapped nut. A design that stops turning when tighten, or loosened by coming into contact with a part, or bracket. After you remove all of the related hoses, etc. the bolts can be removed allowing the smog pump to be removed. Installation is done in the opposite order. The v-belt is also tensioned by "swinging" the smog pump upward.

Rear air suspension holding air not venting, staying up to high


The air suspension uses the same vent solenoid to vent front so that will be ok. The problem will either be the rear height sensor which mounts on/near left side of rear axle. Or the air suspension module itself.
I would suspect it is the rear height sensor,the link may have come unhooked or it may be sticking or just bad.
