Water leak on a 3.1

Sounds like the gasket has gone (perished), the pump will have to be removed from the block, clean away the old gasket , make sure both surfaces are clean and fit a new gasket, use sealing paste as well and refit the pump.

Need to replace water pump in 2005 Kia Sedona!

I think you mean they pressure tested the cooling system and found the pump to be leaking.
You can check with the auto parts stores online for repair info. They also sell the repair manuals.
If the pump is driven by the timing belt it can be a major job to get everything back in place.

My water pump is leaking i guess some screws are loose.. What should i do.. To fix it myself?

well if your leaking from your water pump it shouldnt be the screws loose. there is a weepm hole that when that leaks it means your ater pump is bad. but if the screws are loose just get a socket set an ratched an extention an tighten them up. the water pump is the pulley that has the fan on it.

Water leaking right by the water pump. does pump just go bad or is there another reason why it would just start leaking?

Shaft seals on the pump do go bad. Just replaced one myself. The gasket for the pump housing itself may be leaking. You have to look real hard to tell which is leaking. If you replace the pump, you'll kill both birds with one stone since you need to use a new gasket anyhow.

2000 caravan 3.0l water pump is leaking. Is it something I can replace myself?

If you are mechanically savvy, then sure. If you know about vehicle repair, then sure. If not, I wouldn't. You have to remove timing components, and if they go back in incorrect, you could have major issues.

1998 plymouth voyager3.3l has leak at water pump behind pulley

First of all, changing thermostat will not fix your water pump leak. Obviously defective pump or install. Be sure to take a closer look, in case it's a loose hose in the area. Leaking from behind pulley, usually calls for new pump. What I would do though, is take it back to original repair shop & question them about any warranty that may apply. Some have 1 yr. some have limited lifetime etc. If you can obtain a copy of work done, the part number on the pump should give you what you need to call (or shop can call) and inquire about that particular part number as far as warranty goes. (I'd make the call myself, ahead of time, so I know.) That way, perhaps the shop who originally installed it may feel some kind of obligation to replace it at a reduced fee, as in labor only. ($27 for new pump) . Be nice, play a little dumb, it may help, and if they want you to pay the whole shot over again, go elsewhere for estimate.

Replacing water pump on a 1993 jeep grand cherokee

are you sure its water pump? it kind of sounds like your not sure. is there any visable leaks? if no leaks, that noise you hear could be that idler pulley your talking about. what you need to do is loosen the belt(witch there should be a spring loaded tennioner pully that you got to move to get belt off) once you get belt off spin all pulleys that the belt runs on and see if there noisey, or excessively loose, even fan blade, if fan blade moves alot back and forth than its time to replace water pump( fan is bolted to water pump),( it will move a little thats normal) i'am betting its not the pump, its most likely one of them idler pulleys. now if you need a belt routing diagram, advance auto, autozone, or any other major auto parts stores have web sites you can go on to get one, or you can get one from your local auto parts store, sense you will have to go there for a part any how. if you need anymore help just ask, i'll help you as much as i can. good luck.
