93 dodge intrepid water pump replacement

I have a 93 dodge intrepid 3.5l and would like to change the water pump myself. My car has been overheating and everyone tells me it is probably the water pump because all else has failed to help. I know that it is in the front and that I would have to be very careful of the timing belt and not to move it. I would like to know if there are steps to make this more easy for me and if the radiator needs to be taken out or not. I would love to save myself a couple hundred bucks and do this myself if possible but haven't found any real good instructions on doing it the best and easiest way. Chiltons manual isn't helping much either. thank you and any help would be greatly appreciated.

How do i tell if my water pump is bad on 2001 dodge intrepid 2.7 ?

what is worries me is the fact that your oil level is over full. This is a sign that you are getting fluid into the oil system that you did not add, coupled with the fact that your car is overheating leads me to believe you might have a head gasket issue.

My intrepid is still overheating after replacing the water pump and thermostat

Possible leaking head gaskets, have a shop check for combustion gases in the cooling system with a gas analyzer.

Ticking, water boiling, temp guage reads normal. replaced thermostat sugnificant change

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If it's not overheating then it's just normal. The radiator coolant is really boiling and it must not be opened when the engine is running on normal temperature. If the engine runs sluggish and the temp is still in normal then there surely is problem with the gauge. Have it replaced including the water pump of the car. The coolant must flow freely on the radiator and if the water pump is faulty it will flow slow which may cause overheating.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

It's highly unlikely that an oil change has caused overheating.It's more than likely a bad thermostat.
