Changing water pump on 07 DTS. Did I order all necessary parts?
Noticed coolant leaking from bottom of water pump housing. And my engine seems to overheat while idle. Engine has 180,xxx miles on it, runs strong, and as far as I know the water pump hasn't been replaced. Ordered a bunch of parts and am going to try changing it myself. I got a lot of info from this thread, http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...-2007-dts.html, and it recommended I change all the parts associated with the pump.
Here is a list of parts I ordered, all are GM OEM:
3522676- Thermostat seal/ O-ring
251 698- AC Delco Water pump (gmpartsdirect lists the water pump as #12583033, do I have the correct part?.)
12600020- Water pump gasket
251-2027- (x2) water pump gasket
251-2023- (x2) water pump gasket
3535846- Water pump pulley
12588412- Water pump belt
Should I order 12555153- Belt tensioner? Am I forgetting anything? If I were to bring all the parts to a local mechanic how much do you guys think they'll charge?
