I do not know if already have done it. The water pump in located on the lower left side, and you have to either jack up the car remove the leftside engine mount and both the plastic covers over the timing belt to get access. Obs. drain the water first and just to be safe remove the + cable from the battery.
Be also aware of the grounding cable from the alternator to the firewall if this brake your alternator could break down.Before you can get to the pump you have to get rid of the timing belt.
1)Then you first lower the tension by using the square part of a 1/4 " of a wrench. Put it in the hole and bend hard forward!! then grab the belt and slip it over the wheel so it is free, release the tensioner pressure
2) Then you most probably also have to remove the timing belt tensioner itself.
3)Then carefully remove the bolts that keeps the water pump in place and remove it. Clean the area and check that you new pump have the o-ring around its outlet, use correctly type of packing sement or what ever the dealers says, reassemlbe and the job should be done.
4) Be aware of that the tensioner belt MUST back in same position.
I hope this works for you

How do you change oil pump on 1999 plymoth voyager

Let's give this a shot... first is the question because the oil pressure light stays on when running? The first video tells how to accurately diagnose the pressure switch for fault (most common with Voyagers).

The second is how to remove the oil pan to get to the oil pump if it is bad... this guy is just changing the gasket but the work is the same for your Voyager...

1998 plymoth voyager 2.4 l engine just replaced water pump and timing belt and throttle positioning sensor but still will not idle

I suggest check O2 sensor in the exhaust manifold ; are you scanned the PCM with some OBD reader to know if some trouble code is stored there?

I don't know if the 2.4L has it, but my 3.0L has an Idle Air Control motor that is known for going out - it controls engine idle. Chekc it and keep us updated.

How do I replace the water pump on my 1997 Plymoth Grand Voyager it looks fairly simple

First remove the serp. belt, then drain your engine coolant. now unblot the waterpump, there isn't going to be much clearance between the body and the engine to remove so there are slotted holes that once the pulley is unbolted it will turn and slide closer to the pump. and once the pump is unbolted you will have to try and pry the engine over while sliding the unit out. You are probably going to need assistance. and be careful not to slip when installing the new pump because the blades on the back of the pump are likely to be plastic and will break if the motor swings back towards the body with the pump 1/2 way in.
