I hope that you mean remove crankshaft pulley. crankshaft removal is not part of timing belt replacement, but the pulley may be.
These pulleys have a large bolt retaining them, which I presume that you found, then you have to use a puller to pull the pulley off. You must take care to put ZERO pressure on the threads with the puller.

    2000 dodge caravan V6 3.0L interference or not??


    Timing chain is only available in the 3.3L and 3.8L engines.

    Yours has a belt. (if you're SURE its a 3.0L)

    Here is the info on changing it...

    3.0L Engine
    The timing belt can be inspected by removing the upper front outer timing belt cover.
    Working on any engine (especially overhead camshaft engines) requires much care be given to valve timing. It is good practice to set the engine up at TDC No. 1 cylinder firing position before beginning work. Verify that all timing marks on the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets are properly aligned before removing the timing belt and starting camshaft service. This serves as a point of reference for all work that follows. Valve timing is very important and engine damage will result if the work is incorrect.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove the accessory drive belts. Remove the engine mount insulator from the engine support bracket.
    3. Remove the engine support bracket. Remove the crankshaft pulleys and torsional damper. Remove the timing belt covers.
    4. Rotate the crankshaft until the sprocket timing marks are aligned. The crankshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the oil pump timing mark. The rear camshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the generator bracket timing mark and the front camshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the inner timing belt cover timing mark.
    5. If the belt is to be reused, mark the direction of rotation on the belt for installation reference.
    6. Loosen the timing belt tensioner bolt and remove the timing belt.
    7. If necessary, remove the timing belt tensioner.
    8. Remove the crankshaft sprocket flange shield and crankshaft sprocket.
    9. Hold the camshaft sprocket using spanner tool MB990775, or equivalent, and remove the camshaft sprocket bolt and washer. Remove the camshaft sprocket.
    10. To install:
    11. Install the camshaft sprocket on the camshaft with the retaining bolt and washer. Hold the camshaft sprocket using spanner tool MB990775, or equivalent, and tighten the bolt to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
    12. Install the crankshaft sprocket.
    13. If removed, install the timing belt tensioner and tensioner spring. Hook the spring upper end to the water pump pin and the lower end to the tensioner bracket with the hook out.
    14. Turn the timing belt tensioner counterclockwise full travel in the adjustment slot and tighten the bolt to temporarily hold it in this position.
    15. Rotate the crankshaft sprocket until its timing mark is aligned with the oil pump timing mark.
    16. Rotate the rear camshaft sprocket until its timing mark is aligned with the timing mark on the generator bracket.
    17. Rotate the front (radiator side) camshaft sprocket until its mark is aligned with the timing mark on the inner timing belt cover.
    18. Install the timing belt on the crankshaft sprocket while keeping the belt tight on the tension side.
    19. Position the timing belt over the front camshaft sprocket (radiator side). Next, position the belt under the water pump pulley, then over the rear camshaft sprocket and finally over the tensioner.
    20. Apply rotating force in the opposite direction to the front camshaft sprocket (radiator side) to create tension on the timing belt tension side. Check that all timing marks are aligned.
    21. Install the crankshaft sprocket flange.
    22. Loosen the tensioner bolt and allow the tensioner spring to tension the belt.
    23. Rotate the crankshaft 2 full turns in a clockwise direction. Turn the crankshaft smoothly and in a clockwise direction only.
    24. Align the timing marks. If all marks are aligned, tighten the tensioner bolt to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm). Otherwise repeat the installation procedure.
    25. Install the timing belt covers. Install the engine support bracket. Tighten the support bracket mounting bolts to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
    26. Install the engine mount insulator, torsional damper and crankshaft pulleys. Tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt to 112 ft. lbs. (151 Nm).
    27. Install the accessory drive belts and adjust them to the proper tension.
    28. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
    29. Run the engine and check for proper operation. Road test the vehicle.

    Is Audi guide belt or cam belt related to the sump


    Timing belt needs to be replaced every 100000 km at the most . Do you know when it was replaced last ?
    Did they remove the front pulley (The one on the crankshaft)?
    The Timing belt and AUX belts are not related to the sump but they are related to the crankshaft pulley , Depending on the type of repair carried out they may have removed the pulley in order to replace the crankshaft front oil seal.If I was replacing a crankshaft oilseal due to oil leaking I would have fitted a new Timing belt as well as Tensioner , Idler/s , Water pump (if driven by timing belt) as well as the AUX belts as Oil can damage rubber .
    Hope this makes sense to you ?
    Looking forward to your reply

    Timing belt alignment


    A factory service manual would help, but I'm assuming that if you had one, you probably wouldn't be on this site.

    To set the timing, you need to first perform the obvious: remove the accessory drive belts, cam pulley covers, and engine fan and hub. Next you'll need to rotate the engine by hand until the timing marks on the camshaft sprockets and crankshaft are aligned with their corresponding stationary marks. The 0 degree mark on the lower timing belt cover is the timing mark for the crankshaft pulley. There is a mark (small, vertical formed indentation) for the left camshaft pulley on the backing plate behind the pulley near the 1 o` clock position. The same mark exists for the right camshaft pulley only it is on the backing plate near the 8 o`clock position (making it difficult to see). With the crankshaft placed at the zero mark, you can observed where the timing discrepancy exists.

    (TIP: Once the right camshaft timing is properly lined up, etch an additional mark on the pulley's face and the backing plate at the 12 o`clock position. This will make it easier to align the pulley for furture adjustments and repairs)

    To set the timing correctly, move the crankshaft pulley to 12 deg. BTDC. Being careful to not disturb the position of the crankshaft once it has been moved to that position, remove the crankshaft pulley, lower timing belt cover, timing belt tensioner, and timing belt. Compress the timing belt tensioner and if the original ring pin isn't available to retain the tensioner a small allen wrench can be used to achieve the same results. Line up both camshaft marks and reinstall the timing belt and timing belt tensioner (do not remove the timing belt tensioner tool used to maintain the tensioner piston in a compressed position). When installing the timing belt, be sure to allow the least amount of slack to exisit between the left camshaft pulley and the crankshaft sprocket, but without moving the pulleys.

    Next, remove the timing belt tensioner piston retention tool and mount the lower timing belt cover and crankshaft pulley (without fully installing them). Rotate the crankshaft pulley to the 0 deg. mark. If done correctly, moving the crankshaft pulley from 12 deg. BTDC to 0 deg. will remove all remaining slack from the timing belt assembly and the camshaft pulleys and crankshaft pulleys will be lined up with their corresponding marks. Once proper timing has been achieved, install all removed parts.

    (Another TIP: I hope it's not necessary, but in case it is, I'll remind you that proper torque of all bolts are necessary as this is an all aluminum engine. Stripping out bolts holes due to over-tightening bolts occurs very easily and become very annoying to deal with [e.g. alternator belts not being able to be tightened completely and constantly squealing every few days, etc.])
