Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota
3.9l v6 old water pump has tube connects to hose running to firewall new water pump only has smooth opening-how do I take old tube off and seal to new pump or is part available separately
The heater pipe slides out and the pipe is grooved for an o-ring that seals it from leaks. The pipe may be corroded in place and hard to twist and slide out. Try soaking it in wd-40 or similar product for at least an hour, then with a good set of pliers, grasp the pipe and try to twist it free while pulling outward, once removed, clean all the corrosion off the pipe and groove, preferabley with a power wire wheel. Slightly lube o-ring and fit it to the groove on the pipe and insert it into the new water pump being careful not to split the new ring.

That sounds like the heater bypass tube. On the end of the tube going into the water pump is an o-ring. Pull out the tube, clean it real good, put a new o-ring on it. Clean the hole well that it goes in. Then I will put a slight amount of silicone around the o-ring. That helps it go back together and fills any imperfections.
Hope this helps you.

simple way to tell is to buy a small tube and attach it to the motor of the washer which is on the water tank and push it. If it comes out then you will have no problem knowing.
Unfortunately, the tubes may be fine but the connectors that split the tubes are plastic that wears over time and if they loose enough pressure, the wipers will not work.

If the thermostat is stuck closed there will also be no flow. This is way more likely than a water pump and would first on my list when diagnosing a no flow overheating issue.
I'm pretty sure the 06 charger has a 3.5, 5.7, or a 6.1 liter as an option. Are you sure you have a 2.7?
On the six cylinder the thermostat is located behind the housing bolted to the block that the lower hose is connected to.
