You didn't say what type of pump was replaced, water, power steering, or ??? 
If it was the power steering pump you may be low on fluid or the belt is not tight enough. If it was the water pump it still may be the power steering belt was not tighten enough.
Go to www.youtube.com, type in power steering belt and select the appropriate video and it will show you how.

98 dodge caravan alternator how to change


remove the negative battery cable from the battery. loosen the serpentine belt by using an open-end box wrench and pull the tension pulley back (it's spring loaded, so be careful) by the bolt, remove the belt from the alternator and the tension pulley, then slowly let the tension pulley loose. remove the nuts holding the wires on to the alternator. remove the bolts from the alternator mount, and remove the alternator. put the new one on and hand tighten all of the bolts. then tighten them down with a wrench. put the belt back on the alternator pulley and make sure it's on all of the other pulleys and wheels except the tension. use the wrench again and pull the pulley towards you with your right hand and put the belt under the pulley with your left, and let the pulley go back. reconnect the wires to the alternator and then the battery. **warning** make sure that the battery is fully charged before you start the car with the new alternator, or you'll cause "alternator death" and void your warranty.

How do I remove and replace the belt tensioner on a 1999 dodge Caravan 3.3L v6


You have to go through the wheel well on the pass side of van. Remove tire. Pull off the inner fender splash panel. Put wrench on right side lug of tensioner lift up(counterclockwise on V6). remove belt. Only one bolt holding the tensioner on the engine. New tensioner is $80. If just making noise , just replace the pulley around $20. Use a Dayco or Gates belt. Goodyear gatorbacks make noise

98 dodge caravan


The 3.0 liter is a Mitsubishi design and is not a free wheeling engine or a non interference design, this does not mean the valves are bent, install the belt and then check for bent valves.
