Hi my name is Allen!

It depends on which engine you have. If you have the 3.3 Liter you are in luck. It is mounted on the front of the engine. If you have the 3.0 Liter you are in trouble because the timing belt drives the water pump and it is mounted under the front timing cover. Note this is a very difficult repair, if you do not get the timing back correctly you could bend every one of the valves and this is very costly. Be careful if you decide to do this yourself.

For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!

The motor mount on the same side of the belt/ water pump may have need to be removed during replacement. Check to make sure the mount bolts were tightened back up.

How difficult is it to replace water pump on a 1997 dodge grand caravan 3.3L?


Very easy. You can do this. Just take off the serp belt by pulling down on the tensioner with a 15mm wrench. Then remove the three or four bolts for the water pump pulley. You will need to be under the vehicle for this. Then remove the five or six bolts for water pump. Pull the pump out and install new one in the reverse order. Just slip the belt off the water pump so you don't have to figure reroute the whole thing unless you are replacing it. Also clean the mating service for the pump before installing the new pump with the new gasket. Should take about an hour

I have a 1997 dodge grand caravan with a 3.8L I replaced the radiator cooling fan relay switch and fuses but when idling for more than 5 mins. the van starts overheating


Water pump impeller could be bad or thermostat is stuck shut. I would change thermostat first,easy to change, cost under $10.00 Water pump is hard to change in this van, you have to remove right tire, then inside wheel well, then loosen 3 top motor mount bolts which will lower engine so you can get to water pump and tensioner.

I am having trouble starting my 1997 Dodge Caravan. It keeps rolling over, but takes about two minutes to actually start.


try turning key on and off 2or 3 times then see if it starts right up. if it is there is a check valve in the fuel pump. it cant be replaced. you would have to replace the whole sending unit. costs about $600.00

I have a 1997 3.8 dodge grand caravan. When i start it up it only runs a short time then shuts off. i replaced the fuel pump but it does the samething. Can it be the crank sensor.


Mike, Did you replace the Fuel pump yourself? I am attempting to replace the fuel pump on my 97 but the big O ring is giving me all kinds of trouble. The instructions were very vague and I cant seem to get it seated right.

Dodge 1997 caravan using water


If you don't see a definate leak from any of the hoses, it is probably the water pump. I have a manual for 1996-2002 vans of this model as I have a plymouth Voyager. They are the same mechanically. If you have the 3.0L V6 and it is the water pump, you are in for a expensive fix as the water pump is located behind the timing belt cover. The pump ia actually ran by the timing belt. I just recently fixed the same issue on my van and it was tough. A Mechanic will charge you for six hours of labor plus parts. I was loosing water just like you are, but once the pump got really bad i could finally see where the leak was coming from.

1997 dodge caravan waterpump replacement


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
