    2000 Cadillac Catera Auxillary Electric Water Pumps

    Hi,
    I have to replace both of my auxillary water pumps in my 2000 Cadillac Catera 4-Door. My main water pump is O.K. One electric auxiliary pump is located behind the radiator, and the other is by the heater core. These look like identical parts but I want an expert to confirm that they are the same. The GM Dealer quoted $274 (P/N-GM 9120117) each for these but I looked online at the A1 Cardone website and their part number- Cardone 55-17911 is available through www.theautopartsshop.com for $34.54 each plus shipping. Funny, when I called two different cadillac dealers, they tell me that my car has only one aux pump?? Weird!! If these two aux pumps are the same, I will order two of them through the Auto Parts Shop online. They also give you a two year warranty. I wonder why the huge discrepancy in price even though one part is OEM and the other is after-market? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!!!!

    Thank you so much JohnJJO!!!!!! I appreciate your help on this one!!!! The Cadillac parts guys at the dealerships obviously are mechanics!!! Can't believe they couldn't tell me that I had 2 aux water pumps. I will order the 2 pumps at www.theautopartsshop.com for $34.54 each. At that price, you can't beat it.

    I made be wrong on this, but am sure the auxiliary water pump on the passenger side under the fill tank is the heater pump and comes on when you turn the heat on and the auxillary water pump on the drivers side next to the battery is the over heat pump and comes on when your car starts to get too hot.

    Hello

    I tried to order a pump from www.theautopartsshop.com, but they are out of stock, thats after I order and they charge my card and then they say they don't have any and refunded my card. I went to Parts Geek.com and got the same part at the same price and was ship the same day.

    Re: 2000 Cadillac Catera Auxillary Electric Water Pumps

    I just had the same experience with the autopartsshop.com and autopartsexpress.com. On the last website autopartsexpress.com, I had to E-mail them a query to my order from last Wed 1/23 and they told me they cancelled my order. I just used partsgeek.com as you suggested gvjv3 and they had 2 that I needed and I just ordered those. Did yours show shipped after you ordered them? Thank you so much for this suggestion!!!

    Hi Gvjv3,
    I just had parts geek refund my money since they are out of stock as well. I don't know why I'm having so many problems trying to order this part. I've ordered from 3 different parts sites and all of them have refunded my money stating they are out of stock.I guess I'll keep on trying. Thanks for your help though.

    Unfortunately, Rock Auto uses the same shipping warehouse as the other 3 websites I tried. Thanks for the suggestion though!!!

    For some reason I couldn't find this link as I needed to replace the one under the overflow reservoir

    http://www.theautopartsshop.com/Sear...hText=55-17911

    Price is now ~ $ 52 + Shipping

    Ended up buying used OEM on eBay, vs. aftermarket - But I have bookmarked the reference site - since there are two and who knows how long my used part will work.

    Was loosing the reservoir amount every 500 miles, once the pace accelerated to every 90 - 120 miles the leak was easy to spot
