    Re: water pump

    The pump unlocks with great force - turned clockwise. Remember the location of the odd tab when it comes out - lock it in with 73 lb/ft of torque in a counterclockwise direction, with the pump seal ring wet with raw coolant.

    If the tang(s) are so bent as to prevent removal the entire water crossover must be removed. Off, repair, on is a 2 day job.

    Pictures in my albums as well as in Cadillac Tech Tips.

    Re: water pump

    Sounds like you are using one of the cheap stamped steel sockets.

    You may need the WP socket hold down bracket and an impact gun. A few short bursts usually does the trick.

    Water pump capsule socket = You get what you pay for.

    Unless you cut/welded it yourself from steel pipe or paid $65++ it will fail now or in a couple of uses.

    Re: water pump

    yea I got the socket from the part store as a loaner and I noticed the teeth are rounded so

    ----------

    i think this is a job for the caddy shop due to the fact i don't have the time energy or impact tool to fix

    Re: water pump

    Probably no such thing by itself. Either fabricate one yourself or look for the manufacturers that make the whole rig.

    Google "cadillac northstar water pump removal socket set"

    Re: water pump

    water pump was fixed at a shop here in town because someone hit it with a hammer and bent the tabs with a screw driver hahahaha

    ----------

    but now I have a very troublesome overheating issue and I know everyone is going to say HEAD GASKETS HEAD GASKETS and I am thinking RADIATOR RADIATOR and the reason I say that is that the water pump was welded in with more calcium the a jug of O.J. im thinking a good old rad flushing ?????

    Re: water pump

    Why was the WP fixed instead of replaced?
    What came first, the overheating or the WP repair?
    Check the coolant level. It frequently needs to be topped off once or twice after cooling system service.
    Check the purge line.
    If neither is the problem and you are still overheating, then do the block test after an overheat episode to check for a HG failure.
