I would use the gasket from the dealer which has a silicon bead already on the gasket.

I've had very good results with the dealer's gasket vs. felpro for instance, which requires a non-hardening gasket sealant like blue rtv.

4 cyl. Auto trans. in limp mode. takin the shift solenoid out to re build it i fnd ripped wires. My question may seem should i re connect the first or cont with the shift solenoi

Unfortunately, you should have gotten the diagnostic codes for the transmission before messing with the shift solenoid. Most of those dodge shift issues are caused by input and output speed sensors.

Change water pump is it hard to do

Depending on location in engine it is may be a little difficult. Basically Take off belt, then a few bolts and pull off. Might have to get off with screwdriver to separate pump from engine due too sealant. After you do get it off though, you will have to scrape area that it was attached to clean. getting rid of old sealant. After that just put a little sealant on pump, add gasket, alittle sealant on top of that and re-attach to engine. Let set for a while for sealant to cure pending on temperature. 4 to 6 Hours, a day if possible. Check fluid in radiator, start it up, recheck fluid while idling. Should be fine.

I have 1997 dodge caravan. I think I need to replace the thermostat. Where is it located?

It is located at the end of the large top hose where it connects to the engine.
There are two bolts holding the thermostat housing.

Drain radiator enough so that there is no spill at that level.
Remove the housing, Remove thermostat and scrape off the old gasket and gasket sealant from the housing and engine manifold.

Replace thermostat (pointy side UP) and apply sealant to both sides of the gasket. (I prefer Permatex #2 - non-hardening sealant)

Hope this helps!
