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.

I can't get the water pump out between the engine and frame


Easiest way: Place a pry bar between the frame/body and engine and pry engine back. You only need to move it about a quarter of an inch. There is enough play in the mounts to do this. It's how the Chrysler mechanics do it. Otherwise, you have to remove the pulley from the pump first. Video is available on youtube on how to change water pump on dodge caravan.

1994 Caravan 3.0 how to install the water pump


This is a very complex job that should probably be done by a professional. If you really want to do it yourself, I would highly recommend buying a proper manual. The water pump is driven by the timing belt which is underneath the plastic front cover of the engine. To change the pump, you'll have to remove the front (right side) motor mount bracket, the power steering pump, the plastic timing belt cover, the timing belt and tensioner, then the pump, which is mounted to a housing that is held on to a tube that runs under the intake manifold. Quite often the bolts are rusted to the water pump housing and some care is required when separating and replacing the pump and housing.

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.
