How to replace a water pump on a 2005 dodge grand caravan water pump is leaking, added fluid but is still leaking and now more frequently want to replace it as a do it ourselves


this isnt a solution,just a suggestion.my husband,a fairly skilled home mechanic,recently did this.it took 12 hours over a 2 day period.you have to remove everything from the front of the motor,including the motor mounts,to access the pump.make sure you change the timing belt at the same time if it shows ANY signs of wear so you aren't doing the procedure again anytime soon..good luck!!

I have a 1997 dodge grand caravan with a 3.8L I replaced the radiator cooling fan relay switch and fuses but when idling for more than 5 mins. the van starts overheating


Water pump impeller could be bad or thermostat is stuck shut. I would change thermostat first,easy to change, cost under $10.00 Water pump is hard to change in this van, you have to remove right tire, then inside wheel well, then loosen 3 top motor mount bolts which will lower engine so you can get to water pump and tensioner.
