This procedure is wayyyy to long to list on here. Your better off going to your local auto parts store and buying a repair manual for your car. It will have both detailed procedures for fixing both of your items. You can also goto the library and get the factory service manual for free. Good luck to you and thanks for using fixya!

SOURCE: replace water pump cost
the time to replace is 3.8 hours. multiply this by the shop flat rate and this will give you a labor rate. call some local parts houses to find the price on the pump, dodge gets around 98dollars hope this helps, depending on when you last changed the timing belt you ight want consider doing this at this time as it has to come off to change the water pump. this is an interference engige if the belt breaks it will damage the valves, you should only have to pay for the belt. hope this helps if not ghet back tome and i'll try to help you further. please rate my fix, as i strive to the best Thanks Ray

My condolences. It's located on the passenger end of the engine, under the timing covers. You have to remove the timing belt to replace it. It's a knuckle-busting job; no room to work in there, and you've got to remove a LOT of parts just to get to it. My '96 also had a corroded feed tube, so I ended up having to take apart just about the entire other end of the engine as well! If you can afford it, it's well worth leaving that job to a professional, especially if you haven't done a timing belt before.
BTW, if you do go ahead with it, here's a hint that I found the hard way. Take off the intake manifold first - it'll save you hours of trying to remove the power steering bracket bolts! (That's not as frivolous as it might sound - you have to remove the manifold just to change the spark plugs on that car!)

Remove radiator and fan and anything that will block you from getting to the water pump. Take pictures of each step that you disconnected all parts getting to the water pump and the removal of the water pump with a digtal camera and take the pump to the parts dealer so that you get an exact match. Next read the instructions that come with the pump. Clean all old gasket and glue off of the place where you will install the new water pump. Next take your last picture you take and reverse the order and reinstall the gasket/sealer and water pump and all other parts. Use a tork wrench on the bolts. Add water and anti-freeze to the radiator and start the car and look for leaks.

First, I'd recommend you buy a manual, because the water pump is internally mounted, driven by the timing belt. You will also need a puller to remove the crankshaft pulley. You can usually rent/borrow this from the same place you bought the manual. The manual will also show you how to properly install the timing belt and compress the tensioner.
You will need to drain the cooling system, raise the car (safely), remove the right tire, right inner fender, right engine mount (aka front mount), accessory drive belts, timing belt cover, timing belt and tensioner (which needs to be recompressed correctly), and now you are at the water pump. Since the timing belt has to be removed, you should also replace it.
