Since i have been both diesel and regular mechanic i say you can do it, the basics are the same but the size of parts are different, yes you can do it, just follow the manual, and as i do double check everything, mark your bolts as most will not fit elsewhere, take your time and when you take something off remember how you took it off step by step, good luck to ya

How do i change a water pump on 2001 dodge intrepid?

This vehicle has a double overhead cam engine. The water pump is driven off the timing chain. Unless you have had experience doing internal engine repairs, this is not a DIYer job. There is great risk of doing more damage than good if any step(s) of the repair procedure are not done correctly.

I changed a thermostat on a 2004 dodge intrepid 2.7 and there is a hole thats located next to the bottom housing bolt leaking coolant

The hole you are describing sounds to be the wheap hole for the water pump
years ago the first time i had that issue it drove me nuts to figure it out .. btw not really a job to take on by yourself as it is a chain driven motor, also make sure you are prepared to pay more than the mechanic tells you as it is common to have to change the chain tensioner after this repair (when they collapse the hydrolic unit alot of times they will not "re-inflate")

I own a 2004 dodge intrepid and it has about 180,000 miles on it. i recently replaced the water pump, oil pump and the timing chain. now when i got the timing chain fixed some how it was not put on...

it is possible that when the timing chain was incorrectly fitted that damage was done to the cam lobes or followers and that is the ticking noise
the oil recommended is too light for a used engine so go to 20w 40 or 30w 50
take it to an accredited repair shop for a proper diagnosis

04 intrepid coolant leaking from side of engeine under lower hose housing is there a weep hole there or is it possible the housing is cracked

if you have a 2.7 v6 engine th ecoolant you are seeing is the water pump, on this engine the water pump is internal and driven by the timing chain, it is a very difficult job and quite pricy since it is very labor intensive.

How do i change the water pump on a 96 dodge intrepid

If its a 2.7L, you have to remove the intake and valve covers. You 'll have to remove the radiator core support and radiator. You'll have to remove the drive belts and balancer. Then you remove the timing cover and make sure the timing chains are lined up. The water pump is located in the middle of the front of the engine behind the timing cover. This job really isn't a good thing to attempt if your a basic home mechanic. This is a very complicated job. If the timing chains aren't lined up perfectly, you can bend every valve in the engine on start up. Then it gets expensive.

I need to replace the water pump on a 2002 v6 2.7 l Dodge Intrepid. I have already purchased the part where can I find an affordable mechanic in Houston, TX near the zip code of 77064?

You can check yourself at this link. There is an estimator that indicates labor will be from $450 to $570. Then you can check out mechanincs in your area.

This is a big job. The water pump is driven by the timing chain and it involves taking everything off the front of the engine. Don't be surprised if the mechanic also recommends replacing other items while in there. If you have more than 100,000 miles, maybe even the timing chain(s). As long as it's apart . . .

How do you replace a water pump on a dodge intrepid 2003

The intake where the thermostat goes is in the driver side of the motor behind the altenator. I had to remove the front clip of the car and the altenator to get to it. It is quite a job.
