If you have the NorthStar 4.6L engine this is going to be the easiest water pump you ever done and even if you have not. Auto Zone will be able to help they have a special tool for removing and replacing it. I would suggest replacing the hoses when you do this also. When you get the pump you will also need a O ring for the pump cover, and a new thermostat. get the proper antifreeze also.
Auto Zone should also have some instructions with pic's to help you.. email me if you have any questions.......

The water pump is driven by the timing belt, so if you don't know what you're doing (no offense intended), I would take it somewhere to have the work done. And if you need a new timing belt as well, you should get that done at the same time since since the labor rates for a water pump and timing belt will be very close to the same, you'll be adding mostly parts cost.

How to get the tube off the back of the smog pump on a 1989 cadilac seville


The tube is part of the air pump, you will just remove the hoses and then any other valves that are bolted to the pump,
If you are getting the correct aftermarket pump you will see what needs to be reused and what does not . here is a picture of the replacement pump , You will need the pulley. hope this is helpful. good day. here are a few pics of the new one ...12_25_2012_5_04_39_pm.jpg12_25_2012_5_05_00_pm.jpg12_25_2012_5_06_01_pm.jpg12_25_2012_5_07_02_pm.jpg12_25_2012_5_07_49_pm.jpg

WHAT TYPE OF WATER PUMP WILL I NEED FOR A 1997 CADILLAC SEDAN DEVILLE V8 ENGINE


First of all,you will need the Northstar waterpump removal tool, You can get this from most reputable auto part stores and looks like this :-

The following link shows a selection of different manufacturers.


http://www.bizrate.com/automotive-repair-tools/northstar-water-pump/

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.

As for the waterpump itself, DO NOT buy anything other than AC DELCO as they are the highest quality and is a genuine GM replacement part.

Water pump part number AC Delco 252707

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.

Regards.

1987 Cadilac Sedan Deville- where is the fuel pump and how difficult is it to replace


It is located inside the gas tank. The tank must be emptied and dropped out to replace it which is not very easy to do if the gas lines, retaining brackets and bolts are very rusty
