Question about 1984 Dodge Caravan

Open Question

Need the location of water pump on 1974 Dodge Jamboree RV

I have a 1974 Dodge Jamboree Recreational Vehicle (not an '84 Caravan!). Where is the water pump located in this vehicle that's for pumping water to the shower and the sink in the rear of the RV? I need to remove and replace it, but I don't know where it is!

I own one of these. If it's a 3.5 engine, (original answer is incorrect, Dodge didn't make a 3.8 that year), you'll need to remove the entire front of the engine. (timing cover forward, because the waterpump is driven by the timing belt)

You'll have to remove the cross member over the radiator. Drain the radiator. Disconnect the transmission coolant lines, remove the radiator. Remove the serpentine belt, harmonic balancer (main pulley, and you'll need a puller, or you'll mess it up), remove the timing cover, remove the timing belt tensioner, remove the water pump. To put it back together, do it all in reverse with the following exceptions.

The timing belt tensioner must be closed in a vise, and held with a heavy pin.

Align both cam timing marks (they're on the top of the heads.)

Insert the tensioner and tighten it back up

It takes some patience, and a few tries, took me 5.

but that's all there is to it.

SOURCE: Can't remove water pump from 2007 Dodge Grand -

you must undo the three pully bolts turn the pully so it slips behind the mounting flange , then you should be able to wiggle it out , if it still hangs on frame you a long pry bar and push between frame and crankshaft bolt just hard enough to move engine slightly, this will definitly work and repeat to install. PS use a little RTV silicon to hold seal on new pump.

Do we need to remove engine to replace water pump on 2004 dodge caravan??? or can we get to it without removing much?


You didnt mention what engine you have, but if you have the 3.3 or 3.8 liter its actually very simple. Remove the belt, locate the water pump pulley, remove the bolts holding the pulley and the bolts for the water pump are behind the pulley. Remove them and water pump comes out. Reverse steps to install.

Tip

95-2001 dodge caravan water pump


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

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
