1988 Cadillac Deville water outlet problem.


Recommended Posts

Yahoo Fellow Caddy owners. I need your help.

Badly. Like really badly.

And if that ain´t bad enough I am on not even in the U.S either.

 

Man oh man.

 

Where to begin.

 

I inspected my old 1988 after many years, and after much needed help from friends too.

Everythaaang went ok, until picking up car again after cleared inspection.

Water was puking out from underneath the car.

Gaaaah! and we just hade all the gaskets changed, heads and manifiolds and so forth.

 

Seems like the coolant came from, a pipe sticking out underneath, and behind the waterpump.

Found a pic that I enclose.

 

Does anyone have a part number for this part. seems like it is dealer only.

 

Any form av help greatly appreciated :)

 

Sincerly Klas

I have a 1988 factory service manual, I need to pull it out.  Someone just recently had the exact same problem on a 4.9 it looks exactly like this and he had a leak at the pump inlet.  I will find it and post a link to it for you.  If I recall he purchased a new pump inlet.

Where are you located Klas?

Howdy Ho!

I am located in Sweden.

Got some pics I will upload here. Always helpful.

I need gaskets and all the mumbo jumbo surrounding this pipey part.

And the waterpump itself was surprisingly not pricey at all.

Good lord I am thankful for this. Hope this whole thread can help someone else in the same position.

I have super expert help from a buddy too. and access to an excellent autoshop too.

Praise the lord :) or satan if you happen to be into that ;)

 

Cheers!

For Photobucket, on any image page, choose share this photo, direct code, and just paste it into the edit box here.  The forum converts to a presented image.

For the whole photobucket story, choose the album, then 'share' & 'embed code'.  Then here choose 'source' and paste in the embed code.  Re-choose source and add text description.  Adding all this detail in case it helps others with the same tasks.

Yowzaaa.

 

After all this wonderful help I have managed to find a spare part number for this specific part.

The part is called water pump outlet, and part number is.... Tadaaaa!

 

1626631.

It is is tricky though, because this is a Gm part and can sometimes go under the Chevy name apparently.

Searching through online databases and Ebay said this part was Chevy.

Dunno why. It is Cadillac gawd dang it.

 

I have also managed too fina junkyard that might have one used.

Which means a 4 hour drive back and forth.

Will know more about this tomorrow.

 

Thread continues :)

To be continued...

I was surprised to see that part was that much, since it just looks like a small metal pipe.  Once you get it in hand post a pic please.

Breaking News!

Update!

 

Almost a year ago now since I tackled the above problem.

I have to get back in this thread to close it off, seems like nobody does that anymore LOL.

Also to send my regards for the fantastic help from this forum.

Big thanks to all of your support!

 

The car is up and running, no problems with water leak since I changed the head gaskets.

Water pump, and some pipes.

 

The only thing I could not buy new, and which I ended up welding.

Was a long thin, twisty pipe running underneath the front engine bay.

Placed, if I remember correctly. Right under engine block. Towards the radiator.

Behind water pump, and connecting to the water pump outlet cover.

This part seems to be out of production.

So be careful future owners of Devilles.

DON'T discard or junk this item.

You will need it to be able to use it for a new mockup part. Or to be able to save the old one.

 

Now I am off to a new adventure with this car.

Will try to restore some small issues.

Like why is there no power locks besides on the driver side.

And why is there no interior lights on my left side of the car?

Woop Woop!

 

Enjoy the summer!

 

Cheers!

 

Best Regards Klas
