SOURCE: 1999 dodge carava, replaced water pump....won't

As far as I can tell the water pump is driven by the timing belt. You must pull the main crank pulley and the timing cover. Remove timing belt. You can now remove the water pump. Good idea to replace timing belt and timing belt idler and gaskets at the same time.

You may have got the timing out of adjustment. Hopefully it was not enough to cause the intake/exhaust valves to hit the piston heads. In that case you may have "totaled" the vehicle since the repair costs will probably exceed value of vehicle.
Here is what you can do.
Call the Dodge dealer and find out if the timing belt breaks will the piston hit the valves. If not you are safe since it would be a "freewheeling" engine.
Else you may have problems.
Look at the crankshaft pulley and camshaft pullley. See if they both will line up with marks on the engine block at the same time.
If you did not turn the camshaft pulley more that a few notches out of adjustment you may be ok and it can be reset.

When you try to start it, it probably turns over very fast. That's because you have no compression with the valves open.
Get a repair manual from the library. It free.

try the crankshaft sensor. it is on the transmission bell housing on the passenger side. You could also check for codes by turning the key to the on then off 3 times (DO NOT START THE ENGINE) and it will give you any stored codes in the mileage display

SOURCE: Dodge Intrepid 1996 Water Pump Replacement Needs

a timing belt. the water pump uses it to turn it and you got to take it off to change the pump anyway so you might as well get a new one.also the hydralic timing belt tensioner should be replaced at the same time just to be sure.you will need anti freeze of course as well

How do i change a water pump on 2001 dodge intrepid?


This vehicle has a double overhead cam engine. The water pump is driven off the timing chain. Unless you have had experience doing internal engine repairs, this is not a DIYer job. There is great risk of doing more damage than good if any step(s) of the repair procedure are not done correctly.

HOW TO CHANGE WATERPUMP 1999 INTREPID 2.7


    Prepare the Dodge Intrepid
  1. Step 1 Lay out a drop cloth underneath the Dodge2_bing.gif Intrepid to protect the floor from coolant spills. Designate an area to lay out each part alongside its bolts and connecting hoses and wires. Use a drop cloth here as well, some of the parts will have traces of grease and coolant.
  2. Step 2 Disconnect the negative battery cable, using a screwdriver to unscrew the clamp that secures the cable to the negative (-) post. Pull the cable away from the battery post.
  3. Step 3 Use a jack to elevate the Dodge Intrepid and jack stands to shore up the jack. Release the pressure in the radiator by removing the cap. Take out the drain plug located underneath the radiator. Catch the coolant in a resealable container
  4. Step 4 Use a grease pencil to mark on the timing belt2_bing.gif its position in each pulley before removal. This will save time when reinstalling. If needed, replace the timing belt and skip marking the old one.
    Remove the Damaged Pump
  5. Step 1 Locate the water pump on the Dodge Intrepid. It's mounted on the front of the engine block and connected to the radiator and various other parts through a series of hoses. It's rotated by the timing belt. Study these parts, as you'll have to remove them.
  6. Step 2 Disconnect or remove the parts in front of the water pump, using an adjustable wrench. In the most common Dodge Intrepid engine--the 2.7L--you'll find, in order: the upper radiator crossmember, fan module, accessory drive belts, crankshaft damper, timing cover, timing chain and guide wires.
  7. Step 3 Unbolt the water pump from the engine block, using an adjustable wrench. You may have to use a chisel to gently break the seal between the mount and the pump. Discard both the pump and the bolts.
  8. Step 4 Clean off the mounting area with a shop rag.
    Install the New Pump
  9. Step 1 Inspect the new water pump to ensure it's identical to the old pump and free of any metal splinters or debris.
  10. Step 2 Arrange the new water pump on the mount. You won't need sealant for the o-ring on a Dodge Intrepid. Hold the water pump and o-ring in place as you secure it with the new bolts. Tighten them with a torque wrench to 105 inch pounds torque in any order.
  11. Step 3 Install the timing belt and wires, using the grease pencil marks to guide you in installation. Install the rest of the parts in the order removed. The camshaft must be reconnected with a torque wrench at 125 foot pounds torque.
  12. Step 4 Replace the radiator's drain plug and refill the radiator with the amount and type of coolant specified in your owner's manual. Release the jack and jack stands.
  13. Step 5 Attach the negative battery cable to the post and tighten the screw on the clamp. Crank the Dodge Intrepid's engine and check for leaks. Then, close the hood.
