Question about 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan
Can i drive my 2000 dodge caravan if ps pump is out
I would not advise it, your serpentine belt runs all of your accessories, if your pump locks up it will burn your belt up and then you are stranded.

DISCONNECT THE BATTERY, JACK UP AND SUPPORT YOUR CARAVAN. LYING ON YOUR BACK LOCATE THE STARTER WHICH IS ATTACHED TO THE ENGINE THROUGH THE BELL HOUSING .THERE ARE TWO 15 MILIMETER BOLTS THAT HOLDS THE STARTER ON . AFTER BREAKING THE BOLTS A 15MM WRENCH WOULD BE USEFUL.

If you're on the smallish side and pretty limber, you might avoid removing the rear wheel. If not, you will likely need to remove the rear wheel and put the van on jack stands securely. I would remove the underside splash shield and gain access from underneath. It looks like you will need to unscrew the plastic insert that surrounds the filler neck inside the area that is exposed when you open the fuel door. Make sure you get the vent hooked up correctly when you are done.

Make sure it's cool, pop the radiator cap, Remove the shield on the passenger side between the tire and front of engine. Relieve the tension on the serp belt,draw yourself a diagram of the pulleys and belt routing in case the sticker is gone on the strut tower, remove the serp belt. Take the bolts out of the pulley on the front of the water pump (3). Remove the lower radiator hose at the front cover to drain the coolant. Remove the 6 mm bolts holding the water pump to the front cover housing. tap on the pump with a rubber hammer. Install a new gasket on the new pump, and a weap hole diverter in the pump (round black about hte size of a quarter), use old one if there's no new one. Install pupm and tighten bolts snug with a 1/4" ratchet. Install pulley and 3 bolts. Install belt, top off radiator with 50/50 mix green coolant. start engine and run to operating temperature,make sure the belt is seated in all of the pulleys and is running true, radiator fans should come on. Shut engine down and let cool overnight. Check level in radiator and overflow bottle, top off as necessary.

Go to the auto parts store and buy the repair manuel and read the water pump replacement section before trying the replacement. Its a good idea to find some experienced help also.
