I suggest check O2 sensor in the exhaust manifold ; are you scanned the PCM with some OBD reader to know if some trouble code is stored there?

I don't know if the 2.4L has it, but my 3.0L has an Idle Air Control motor that is known for going out - it controls engine idle. Chekc it and keep us updated.

How do I change the throttle position sensor on a 2004 Cadillac Seville with a Northstar engine

Throttle Position Sensor is located on the Throttle Body for the EFI intake. Mark position of old unit and try to match when installing new unit. Should be taken to garage to get proper adjustment of "TPS" at idle if your unsure of yourself.

Changing water pump

I do not know if already have done it. The water pump in located on the lower left side, and you have to either jack up the car remove the leftside engine mount and both the plastic covers over the timing belt to get access. Obs. drain the water first and just to be safe remove the + cable from the battery.
Be also aware of the grounding cable from the alternator to the firewall if this brake your alternator could break down.Before you can get to the pump you have to get rid of the timing belt.
1)Then you first lower the tension by using the square part of a 1/4 " of a wrench. Put it in the hole and bend hard forward!! then grab the belt and slip it over the wheel so it is free, release the tensioner pressure
2) Then you most probably also have to remove the timing belt tensioner itself.
3)Then carefully remove the bolts that keeps the water pump in place and remove it. Clean the area and check that you new pump have the o-ring around its outlet, use correctly type of packing sement or what ever the dealers says, reassemlbe and the job should be done.
4) Be aware of that the tensioner belt MUST back in same position.
I hope this works for you
