Question about 1998 Cadillac DeVille
For what its worth this also happend to me....there is an easy fix if it is not out of warantee.....detatch the hose from the lower assembly and from the pump. then cut the flexable part of the hose out. Take the top section from the pump to your local NAPA or anyplace that can make you a high pressure or hydrolic line. They can put the rite size compression fittings on the metal part of the hose.
You get the appropriate length of hose with compression fittings and just replace the part of the hose that is leaking. When this happened to me the cadillac hose was about 175 bucks and the fix from napa was about 20....it takes about 2 hours to remove the hose completely and re install it as i did....but then after i took the whole hose in i found out i could have just as easily cut the metal part of the hose before and after the leak and used the compression fitting hose they made me. Just make sure and get a proper length....too long and it will be hard to work with in the tight compartment, and too short....well....thats self explainitory
