My water pump went on my 98 plymouth voyager how much will it cos
You don't mention what engine you have ( there are 4 cyl, or 2 v-6 choices 3.0L or 3.3L available for that year). The water pump costs anywhere from $50 to $80, depending where you buy it, labor is supposed to take about one hour (access to the water pump is through the wheel well, after removing the plastic liner). There are other things that can raise the cost: how old is your coolant? This is a good time to have it changed if it needs it, what is the condition of the serpentine belt? It has to be removed to replace the pump, so again, if it needs to be changed, this is the time to do it. Dealers are charging about $100 an hour in my area, private garages less, and there will be additional charges for 'environmental' concerns, which is basically properly disposing of parts and fluids. So, the best thing to do is check with your local dealer and service stations and get an estimate on the work, and if anything else is needed (coolant, belt, etc) for a price in your area. With the economy not doing well, there should be plenty of repair facilities eager to give you an estimate. Good luck.
