If you are standing in front of the car, and looking down between the back of the radiator and the front of the engine, the auxiliary water pump will be on the bottom left corner of the back of the radiator.
For all dodge minivans 94 to 2001 (and others) with 3.0 ltr V-6. You're driving on the freeway your temp gauge starting to go up. You get off the freeway. when the engine is cooled down you discover that the coolant in gone. You refill the radiator and look for a leak but can't find one. You check the oil but its not foamy, so no coolant there. If all seems to be operating normally, check under the vehicle when the engine is warmed up. There may be a slight coolant leak on the passenger side near the front tire .When the water pump on these engines typically coolant will leak out of the pump thru a "weep hole" located at the bottom of the pump. Most of the loss occurs while driving so your only indication may be that small drip of coolant. The water pump is powered by the camshaft timing belt and is located under the timing belt cover and can not be seen, however any coolant leak, no matter how small, in the area just to the rear of the crankshaft pulley is almost surely a failed water pump and must be addressed immediately
It's located behind the front bumper on the driver's side. You need to disconnect the battery, remove the left front wheel and remove enough of the retainers for the left front wheel well [plastic] shroud, to move the shroud out of the way. This gives you access to the TCM [transmission control module aka transmission computer] Diagram linked below. See

Water pump sits in the front of the engine top centerline. Look just below the coil pack. It uses the timing v-belt for operation so it takes a bit of mechanical know how to remove/replace (r&r) it, as the timing can be thrown off if the v-belt is not reinstalled correctly. Get past the timing belt, the water pump is r&r is just a few bolts away. I'm currently babying my water pump...the part is relatively inexpensive compared with an almost $500 labor charge (5hrs, dealer est.) to replace it. I'll be hitting up the dealer as my '93 Audi 90 CS Quattro is a daily driver. G/L
