SOURCE: How do you change the water pump on a 1997 Dodge

1. Drain the cooling system.
2. Remove or disconnect the following:
* Negative battery cable
* Fan and clutch assembly from the pump
* Fan shroud and fan assembly.
* If you're reusing the fan clutch, keep it upright to avoid silicone fluid loss!
* Lower hose
* Water pump (8 bolts)
3. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten the bolts, in sequence, to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).

SOURCE: how to replace water pump on 1995 dodge dakato 5.2 liter V8

When I do those I find it's easier to get some of the stuff out of the way. Fan shroud, Alternator, AC compressor(don't remove AC hoses just swing it over to the side) and the AC/alternator mount bracket. If you don't have the special hose clamp plyers they are worth buying. (those clamps are difficult with regular plyers) The fan clutch has a special wrench which is thinner. When you start the job break loose the fan clutch before you remove the belt. It keeps tension on the pulley. The nut is normal threading and usually comes loose with a sharp rap of the hammer on the fan clutch wrench.
Here is an illustration of the water pump bolts. I hope this helps you out. let me know how it goes.6f7219e.gif

SOURCE: How hard is it to replace the water pump on a 1997

c6f48b0.gif The pump is driven by the timing belt so you basically need to take the front of the motor apart. It is quite a job to get at it but is doable. If you are going to do the job I'd suggest changing the timing belt, tensioner pulleys and the cam and crankshaft seals as well, may as well do some preventative maintenance while it is apart. I've got the whole proceedure and will make u a copy if you want.

I have a 1997 dakota 5.2 motor. Had to replace fan blade & clutch. Im putting a new water pump on now. if i still have noise what other things should i check.


Alternator, A/C Compressor, Power-steering pump, smog pump, idler pully(s).

I would pull the belt(s) and check each pulley for wobble or rough spinning.

How do i remove the fan from the water pump on my 1997 dodge dakota?


Use a long screwdriver to pry between 2 of the bolts while you loosen another bolt with a box-end wrench. Don't take any bolts out until you have them all loose. Does this make sense?

Follow the bottom radiator hose. It hooks from the radiator to the waterpump. They are not real hard to change.
