Its on the same side of the engine as the transmission, driven by the belt up top. It requires a special socket to remove the pump from the housing.(also, the pump turns clockwise to remove!)

This can be a major operation. Go to public library and see if they have a chilton repair book on this car. The pump has about twenty bolts af various sizes and torx head bolts.

Where is the water pump located on a 1998 cadillac deville


The water pump is on the front driver's side of the engine. It is spun by a small belt driven from the end of the cam shaft. You will see a cover up and to the right of the oil dipstick. That covers the pulley. Follow the belt and you will find the water pump. It requires a special tool to replace.

Why does my 2001 cadillac deville keep running hot. ive changed the water pump and the thermistat


Well there could be a couple of problems if you live in a hot place you should change the thermostat to a lower tempatured one so the water will circulate sooner that will help it run cooler if that doesn't do it it might need the radiator flushed.
