Very easy. You can do this. Just take off the serp belt by pulling down on the tensioner with a 15mm wrench. Then remove the three or four bolts for the water pump pulley. You will need to be under the vehicle for this. Then remove the five or six bolts for water pump. Pull the pump out and install new one in the reverse order. Just slip the belt off the water pump so you don't have to figure reroute the whole thing unless you are replacing it. Also clean the mating service for the pump before installing the new pump with the new gasket. Should take about an hour

I have a 1997 dodge grand caravan with a 3.8L I replaced the radiator cooling fan relay switch and fuses but when idling for more than 5 mins. the van starts overheating


Water pump impeller could be bad or thermostat is stuck shut. I would change thermostat first,easy to change, cost under $10.00 Water pump is hard to change in this van, you have to remove right tire, then inside wheel well, then loosen 3 top motor mount bolts which will lower engine so you can get to water pump and tensioner.

I have a 1997 3.8 dodge grand caravan. When i start it up it only runs a short time then shuts off. i replaced the fuel pump but it does the samething. Can it be the crank sensor.


Mike, Did you replace the Fuel pump yourself? I am attempting to replace the fuel pump on my 97 but the big O ring is giving me all kinds of trouble. The instructions were very vague and I cant seem to get it seated right.
