WATER PUMP AND SERPENTINE BELT PROBLEMS

I HAVE JUST BOUGHT A USED 1999 TOWN AND COUNTRY LXI, WITH A 140000 MILES. I DIDN'T RESEARCH THE VEHICLE WELL B/C WE WERE IN NEED OF A CAR FOR 3 KIDS FAST. SINCE YESTERDAY 6/9/08, THE SERPENTINE BELT HAS COME OFF AND I AM TOLD IT WAS BECAUSE THE WATER PUMP SEIZED UP. IN REVIEWING THE REPAIR RECORDS FROM THE PREVIOUS OWNER AFTER THE FACT. IT SEEMS THAT THIS CAR HAS HAD QUITE A FEW REPAIRS FOR THE SAME PROBLEM. WAS /IS THIS A PROBLEM FOR THIS MODEL 1999 V6 3.8L ENGINE

Yes.
If you take the serpentine belt off, the engine may start.
But you may not have a working water pump without the belt.

When do you replace a timing belt on a 3.0L chrysler town and country


3.0 liter timing belt , I think, are recommended at 60,000 miles but you could easily get 100,000 miles out of them. They are a non interference engine so if it does break it will cause no other damage besides maybe ruining a timing belt cover. Usually the water pump will fail before the timing belt does.

1998 chrysler town and country over heating, just had to replace broken serpentine belt, could water pump be bad?


does your vehicle have a lot of squealing when you start it is there any coolant under the rad these are two indicators of a bad water pump.. other wise check your rad and thermostat if thermostat is sticking then it could cause the overheating if rad is bad this is also a major overheating problem as well.I suggest you take it to a rad shop and have them check it they will have the proper solution for it and save you the time and perhaps the money as well

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable. The only problem I have had with the car is the serpentine belt. It started 3 months ago . . . the engine was overheating and the belt was shredding. I bought a belt...


is the a/c working ok??? shredding the belt may be cause by the a/c compressor problems. the "chunk" maybe not, but shredding tells me something does not spin when it should. I dont know why the mehanic put a new pump on that had a problem with the pulley, it should be smooth. anyhting that the belt runs should be smooth and east to turn, make sure that all of the grooves are clean, no remnants of the old belt.
