Check the passage of the coolant if there are debris or leaks. There might be a puncture on the engine block somewhere.

Whats a quick fix for a leaky water pump on a 2001 Dodge 1500?

Replace the water pump with a new or rebuilt water pump. They usually leak at the pulley bearing. Bad things will happen if the bearing seizes up and locks the pulley. It will only get worse if it isn't repaired. Stop leak additives will only delay the problem, and could gum up your cooling system.

Leaking coolant.. its hard to see where it is coming from.. it leaks out heavily when car is cranked,, it looks like it is comin from right behind the belt drive (the bigger one) is that the water pump?

This does sound like your water pump is leaking, or your head gasket has busted on the outside edge. I would check the water pump first, as it is fairly common for the seal to bust and leak coolant from the water pump.

I changed my headgasket on my 1999 dodge avenger and water pump spark plugs even the hydraulic timing belt tensionerand it is still misfiring

Why did you change the head gasket Patrick,
Was the engine missing before you did this,or did you over heat the engine from low coolant?
If the miss was there before you may have burnt a valve,

How hard is it to replace the water pump on a 1997 Dodge Avenger 2.5 V-6?

c6f48b0.gif The pump is driven by the timing belt so you basically need to take the front of the motor apart. It is quite a job to get at it but is doable. If you are going to do the job I'd suggest changing the timing belt, tensioner pulleys and the cam and crankshaft seals as well, may as well do some preventative maintenance while it is apart. I've got the whole proceedure and will make u a copy if you want.

Will a broken timing belt and water pump require replacement of engine head valves 1 and 3?

If this is 2.0 liter duel over head cam than engine damage most likely will happen if the timing belt brakes sorry about the bad news .

I need to replace the timing belt on my 98 dodge avenger

depending if its a 2.0 or a 2.5 really either or, i personally recommend taking it to a shop, you have to pull the motor to get to the timing belt on a 2.0 and just the same on a 2.5, that or tilt it on such an agle to access the timing belt and to be able to remove the proper bolts to access the belt, then after you get to the belt you have to have a special tool for the belt tentioner and align the top dead center with the new belt, in doing this you may have to have a camsaft turn in a way that when the tentioner is let off they all align with the new belt... it is a very agrivating process...
