I own one of these. If it's a 3.5 engine, (original answer is incorrect, Dodge didn't make a 3.8 that year), you'll need to remove the entire front of the engine. (timing cover forward, because the waterpump is driven by the timing belt)

You'll have to remove the cross member over the radiator. Drain the radiator. Disconnect the transmission coolant lines, remove the radiator. Remove the serpentine belt, harmonic balancer (main pulley, and you'll need a puller, or you'll mess it up), remove the timing cover, remove the timing belt tensioner, remove the water pump. To put it back together, do it all in reverse with the following exceptions.

The timing belt tensioner must be closed in a vise, and held with a heavy pin.

Align both cam timing marks (they're on the top of the heads.)

Insert the tensioner and tighten it back up

It takes some patience, and a few tries, took me 5.

but that's all there is to it.

put silicone RTV sealant on the gasket surface and it will not leak.
comes in a small tube for 5 can actually use it instead of gaskets for things like thermostats

What can I do if my water pump is leaking?Would I have to change all the water pump or does it have some kind of gascket that I have to change?Its a 2001 taurus V6

In most cases it is the water pump itself that is leaking. If you are going to go to all the trouble of replacing the water pump gasket you might as well replace the water pump too. Shouldn't cost that much due to the age of the vehicle. Just make sure that's is where you are losing coolant...Good luck

Trying to replace the water pump, having trouble getting the pulley off to remove the timing chain cover, any solutions?

If it is the 2.2l then you should have to remove the timing chain cover to get waterpump off. There are, I believe, 5 bolts that hold the water pump on. It is a cramped area but accessible.

It depends on the engine. The 4 cylinder engine uses a timing chain, and is generally replaced every 150,000 miles (Honda doesn't give a specific interval) with the water pump (driven off of the timing chain) and timing gears. On the V6 engine, you have a regular rubber/steel belt, and it is supposed to be replaced every 105,000 miles, according to Honda. The water pump is driven off the belt as well, and should be inspected or replaced. (I recommend replacing the water pump anyway, just to save yourself any future trouble)

Radiator overheating

The only thing missing from your narration is the water pump. Check to make sure that you are not losing coolant from the water pump. Make sure it is not leaking coolant. If there is evidence of leaking, the water pump is bad. You must take extreme caution when dealing with the cooling system (hot liquid under pressure; not a pleasant thought), but you can remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Check the coolant in the radiator for movement/circulation. If the water pump is functioning properly, there should be some visible sign of water/coolant circulation. The water pump may not be at fault, but with the other upgrades you made to the cooling system, some gunk (for lack of a better word) may have broken loose and clogged the ports in the water hose. You can also remove the hose at the water pump and check for anything clogging up the works. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

if you go to your local library most do carry the manuals and you can copy the info you need.
difficult.. yes. extremely
if you decide to do it make sure you use 1/2 drive breaker bar on crank pulley if your lower timing cover cannot be moved far enough to access the water pump mounting bolts. also make sure you don't turn the timing gear when removing the belt or replacing it.
hope this will help you.
