How to change a water pump on a 2001 Dodge Dakota

Have removed the seven bolts but the pump won't move

    I have the same problem on a 2002 I removed all the bolts and the water pump will not move at all. I have tapped it and tried to use the house outlet to move it and it still is just as tight as it was when I started. Any other ideas.

Use a soft hammer and try tapping it lightly. If you try to pry it from the back, use something soft so you don't mar the surface and create a leak. The gasket material has formed a tight seal and is holding it in place. Look for any missing bolts and tubes going out the back that you missed.

Oil pump replacment


Take the oil pan off, and it will be sitting there staring you in the face. Look at the replacement and see where the bolts are that hold the pump on. Remove them, take old pump out, put new one on. DO not overtighten the bolts. not a tough job, but very messy. Best to let the oil drain overnight after oil pan is removed. You will also need anew oil pan gasket

How i change the oil pump in my dodge dakota 4.7 V8- 2001 ?


You are going to have to lift the motor to accomplish this. Your best bet would be to use a cherry picker. You'll have to disconnect the battery, and any thing else that will impede you from lifting it. You don't have to go up that much so don't take anything off that will waste your time. Just remove what ever may be dammaged. Pull the pan and replace the pump and put it back together in reverse order.

Antifreeze leaking for bottom bolt of water pump, do you think it could only be a gasket ?


It could be a gasket, but more likely bolt thread sealing issues. Get some teflon tape, pull the bolt, wrap it and reinstall it. Pressure test to see if you stopped the leak.

A bolt will typically have metal all around what it holds, and usually gasket leaks happen between bolts..

How do i remove the fan from the water pump on my 1997 dodge dakota?


Use a long screwdriver to pry between 2 of the bolts while you loosen another bolt with a box-end wrench. Don't take any bolts out until you have them all loose. Does this make sense?

Remove clutch fan dodge dakpta 4.7


This one does require a tool to loosen the fan clutch from the water pump shaft. Part of the tool holds the pulley and the other part is spanner wrench used to loosen the clutch. An important note on these fan clutches: Once you have the fan clutch off DO NOT let it lay with the rear side of the fan pointing downward as the silicone fluid that provides the "clutch" action can drain into the bearing and cause the clutch not to work. Once you have the clutch off just lean the fan and clutch against something so it is standing upright just as it is when it's bolted to the water pump until you are ready to put it back on. Hope this helps you out a bit!

2. Remove or disconnect the following:
* Negative battery cable
* Fan and clutch assembly from the pump
* Fan shroud and fan assembly.
* If you're reusing the fan clutch, keep it upright to avoid silicone fluid loss!
* Lower hose
* Water pump (8 bolts)
3. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten the bolts, in sequence, to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).

2001 Dodge Dakota 3.9L oil pressure


The pickup tube is a bad design in these engines, I have fixed several with the same problem, you can weld on a GM screen move it 1/4 of a inch away from the pan or add 1 inch to the bottom of the pan, (use a high volume pump) the problem is the screen is too close and too small and will pick up any sludge off the bottom. also it's great to make a access plate on the bottom of the pan using a Volkswagen Bug oil cover plate, it can be removed with bolts after a oil drain to clean the screen without the hassle of removing the whole oil pan by lifting the engine on these trucks. Good Luck
