There are many possibilities for this noise. The pulley can be bad or the belt can be worn or its over tight or got bit loose or the belt and the pulley got dried up.----- First thing you can try is spray bit water around the belt and pulley area,with hairspray and let it remain for few minutes then start/ run the vehicle and see if the noise is there.If the noise is still there then, --
I would suspect one of the idler pulleys, alternator bearings, water pump baring, you can isolate the location of the sound by using a short piece of hose, hold one end at your ear and with the engine running and the squealing noise evident carefully aim the other end of the hose at the deferment pulley locations, as you get closer to the noise source you will hear a marketable rise in noise you hear through the hose, careful not to get the hose caught up in the belt.-------- Other thing you can try is drop down the belt, and check each pulley, especially the steering pump.
To see if it is the belt or the bearing or tensioner, use a squirt bottle to squirt water on the pulley surface you suspect. If it quiets it momentarily, it is the belt. If it makes no difference, it is the pulley or more likely the tensioner. Watch the tensioner, that is 4" inch diameter pulley that is up top that goes to nothing but an arm, and gun the engine with your hand on the accelerator cable. You should see the arm flex that the pulley is on if it is working, if not it will squeal. You can replace it from the bottom with a 15mm wrench.---------- If the squeaking pulley pr pother part not replaced, the problem with increase and belt will get cracked and it needs to be replaced.

Trying to replace water pump on 1999 Plymouth grand voyager ...there are only three bolts on the pulley and I can't for the life of me get the damn pulley off. Suggestions??


Sometimes the little inner-hub rusts itself onto the pulley. I take a rubber mallet and gently rap the edge of the pulley, turn it a bit, rap it, turn it, rap it...etc...usually that quickly works.

How do I remove oil pump on 2000 Plymouth voyger


The oil pump removal procedure for Plymouth Voyager 2000.
A oil pump is usually located in the oil pan. If you want to change the oil pump and replace it with a new one, roll up your sleeves and get ready for some dirty work.
The procedure to remove oil pump is as follows:--
  • Drive your vehicle up onto ramps or lifts so you have room to work as you pull out the oil pump. You could also use a jack, but make sure you brace the front wheels so they don't roll. In addition, set the emergency break firmly into position so the car doesn't roll.
  • Remove the engine front cover then drain the engine oil and take out the oil pan. It is under the engine and looks like the bottom of the motor.
  • Unscrew the oil pump mounting bolts with a wrench and proceed to remove the oil pump itself by pulling it down and out of the engine. Avoid getting any contaminants into the oil pump assembly while removing.
The Water pump removal procedure for Plymouth Voyager 2000.
The water pump is the heart of the Plymouth Voyager's cooling system, circulating the coolant. When the water pump is faulty, it can cause serious damage to the engine of your Plymouth Voyager.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.Place a drain pan underneath the radiator. When the engine is cool, drain the cooling system from the radiator into the pan.
  • Remove the right inner splash shield and the accessory drive belts. Support the engine underneath and remove the right motor mount with the bracket.
  • Take off the front cover and remove the timing belt along with the timing belt idler pulley. Also remove the camshaft sprockets, the rear cover to the timing belt and the alternator with its bracket.
  • Loosen and remove the bolts to the water pump and remove it from the engine.Install the new water pump after inserting a new o-ring gasket. Tighten the bolts to 105-inch lbs. Make sure that the pump can move freely by rotating it by hand.
  • Replace all components in reverse order. Tighten the camshaft sprocket bolts to 75 foot pounds and the timing belt idler pulley to 45 foot pounds.
  • Refill the cooling system with coolant and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check for leaks when it reaches normal operating temperatures.

Loud noises coming from the cooling system could be a sign that your water pump needs replacing. A leak in the coolant may also be an indicator. You can expect that a water pump will need to be changed every 70 to 100 thousand miles or so in a Plymouth Voyager vehicle.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Slow Leak in Water Pump-1999 Plymouth Voyager


What's probably happening is the weep hole on the water pump is leaking water. The weep hole is a warning sign that the water pump needs replaced. You don't have any heat because the impeller in the water pump is no longer circulating water.
