Alright, here's a pic of the mechanicals:

The bad news is on your vechile you have to remove the timing belt, but here's a step by step.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the drive belts.
  3. Drain the cooling system.
CAUTION When draining coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the timing case cover and timing belt. Refer to Timing Belt Covers and Timing Belt Removal procedures.
  2. Remove the pump assembly mounting bolts.
  3. Separate the pump assembly from water pipe and remove.
  4. Clean gasket and O-ring mounting surfaces.
  5. Install a new O-ring on water pipe and lubricate with water.
  6. Install a new gasket on pump body.
  7. Press the water pump assembly into water pipe.
  8. Install pump mounting bolts and tighten to 27 Nm (20 ft. lbs.).
  9. Install timing belt and cover. Refer to Timing Belt procedures.
  10. Install drive belts.
  11. Fill the cooling system
To remove timing:
0900c152800661ff.jpg
The timing belt can be inspected by removing the upper (front outer) timing cover.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the accessory drive belts.
  3. Remove the timing belt covers.
  4. Identify the timing belt running direction to avoid reversal during installation.
  5. Loosen timing belt tensioner bolt and remove timing belt.
  6. Remove the crankshaft sprocket flange.
To install:
  1. Rotate the crankshaft sprocket until timing mark on crankshaft sprocket is lined up with the oil pump timing mark at 1 o'clock position.
  2. Rotate the (inner) camshaft sprocket until mark on (inner) camshaft sprocket is lined up with the timing mark on alternator bracket.
  3. Rotate the (outer) camshaft sprocket (radiator side) until mark on the sprocket is lined up with the timing mark on the timing belt inner cover. Refer to timing belt illustration.
  4. Install the timing belt on the crankshaft sprocket while maintaining pressure on the tensioner side.
  5. Position the timing belt over the camshaft sprocket (radiator side). Next, position the belt under the water pump pulley, then over the (inner) sprocket and finally over the tensioner.
  6. Apply rotating force in the opposite direction to the camshaft sprocket (radiator side) to create tension on the timing belt tension side.
  7. Rotate the crankshaft in a clockwise direction and recheck engine timing marks.
  8. Install the crankshaft sprocket flange.
  9. Loosen the tensioner bolt and allow tensioner spring to tension the belt.
  10. Again rotate the crankshaft in a clockwise direction (2) full turns. Recheck the engine timing. Tighten the tensioner bolt to 23 ft. lbs. (31 Nm).
  11. Install the timing covers.
  12. Install the accessory drive belts.
  13. Connect battery negative cable.
Hope this helps.

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.

Do we need to remove engine to replace water pump on 2004 dodge caravan??? or can we get to it without removing much?


You didnt mention what engine you have, but if you have the 3.3 or 3.8 liter its actually very simple. Remove the belt, locate the water pump pulley, remove the bolts holding the pulley and the bolts for the water pump are behind the pulley. Remove them and water pump comes out. Reverse steps to install.

How do i change the water pump on a 2000 dodge,grand caravan


Removing and changing the water pump on a 2000 Grand Caravan should only be done if your van has a 3.3 liter or 3.8 liter V6 engine. On any other engine types, including four-cylinder engines, you must remove the timing belt from the engine to access the water pump, which is a dangerous task that can mess up the engine if attempted by an amateur.
The procedure is as follows:------------- The water pump is responsible for sending the engine coolant to the engine.First of all remove the serpentine belt then remove the plastic cove on the passenger side behind the wheel. You will have to remove the pulley. Once the pulley is removed unbolt the water pump and remove it. Clean the surfaces and install new pump. Draining the coolant and replacing it is advisable.
Drain the engine coolant, twisting and removing the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator
-------------------Thats it.

Ticking sound on 2001 dodge grand caravan 135000mi


Turns out it was the water pump. The plastic impeller on the inside had broken in half- split almost right down the middle. there was just enough of the impeller remaining to attach to the shaft and pump water. Apparently, it was pumping enough to keep the temp under control. So, I never noticed it overheating. The piece that had broken off had gotten lodged in a recessed area inside the pump housing. The ticking noise was being generated as the intact half of the impeller rotated and hit the broken off half.

I narrowed down the problem by removing the belt and cranking the engine temporarily. With the belt off and the pump not turning, the sound was gone. I could spin the pump pulley by hand and faintly hear the noise.

A new pump cost me $35 and took about two and a half hours to replace.
