Try (repairpal.com) for estimate for your particular area. You may have to enter Grand Caravan to get the 3.8L engine .
I'm thinking 2 hrs.

The water pump is not easy to change on that motor when dodge went to the 2001 body style rooted everything on the motor so your water pump is back where your power steering pump used to be but with a 10 millimeter ratchet wrench and 13 millimeter ratchet wrench it shouldn't take any more than 2 hours

Serpentine belt slipped off. 1998 Dodge Gran Caravan 3.0 litre 6 cylinder


On this particular model of the 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan I determined that the upper hose from the water pump had slipped off and anti-freeze squirted on the serpentine belt causing it to slip off. Once the belt gets slick it never stays on. I replaced the belt by loosing the tensioner which is the idler pulley located in the center of the configuration, A big thanks to user motor1258for the configuration diagram.

My water pump on my caravan is going out


I checked a couple of sites and they all listed between 3-3.8 hours labor. Depending on the market you are in labor is generally + or - $65 an hour. The water pump should run around $70 (guesstimate). In all honesty I would have the belts checked and replaced if needed at the same time. Most places will charge you very little if any additional labor because they have to take them off anyway. The belts should not be all that expensive and if possible buy them yourself ahead of time. I hope this helps
