OK, disconnect neg battery cable, drain cooling system, remove splash shield under right front fender for easy access to water pump bolts, loosen clamps and disconnect hoses from pump, remove drive belt, remove water pump pulley bolts, remove pulley (tip: loosen bolts on pulley before removing belt), remove water pump bolts (5) , separate from the front cover, clean the bolt threads and the threaded holes in the front cover to remove any corrosion and sealant, remove and discard o ring and clean mating surfaces, careful not to gouge or scratch mating surfaces, install new o ring into the groove, install the pump to the front cover and tighten to 105 INCH pounds, pulley bolts are 21 FOOT pounds.Good Luck! countrycurt0

I have a 1998 dodge grand caravan 3.0 motor and i have replaced the theromostat and changed the radiator cap and it seems to be loosing fuild somewhere

Visually inspect around bottom of waterpump. There's a "weep" hole - it's an early warning system for waterpump before bearing seizes. Also check passenger carpet/floor up to firewall - possible heater core leak.

I am trying to change the serpentine belt on my 1994 Dodge Caravan and the new belt keeps slipping off. Looking at the belt diagram, the bottom right pulley seems to be loose and the cause of the problem....

This all depends on the engine size, there are four types of engines that come in this van , but at the bottom right its the waterpump or the a/c compressor, if its the ac then you will need to replace the compressor but if its the waterpump the pulley is not the problem but rather the waterpump is bad, grab a hold of the pulley and see if it shakes if it does then the waterpump is bad and also you should be leaking some coolant if its the pump, here are a few diagram to help you._46.gif_47.gif_48.gif

Heater blower motor replacement -1997 Dodge Grand Caravan

Remove the cover plate on the passenger side of the heater box, 3-4 screws.
Unplug the motor assembly, remove 3-4 more screws that hold the motor in place and pull it down from its position. Get an aftermarket motor and installed it in the original housing with the original squirrel cage.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
