Easy one. Check for water around the port hole, if it's leaking. It bad and needs to be replaced. I know. I have to replace my wife's water pump in her 2001 dodge caravan as well as a tranny ecm because it shorted out due to water leaking inside the unit. Hope this helps
Hey had this same problem last year. turned out all the contacts under the power control module were eroded away causeing a short to burn out the FCM, easy fix but OE parts ran about 1000$ for all. might be something to check.
you can get a radiator pressure tester put pressure on radiator if a leak is there it will show.but if you can see water coming from water pump replace -replace thermostat-check hoses -radiator flowing good.
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
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.
Yes theres room. Remember to loosen the water pump pulley bolts first. Then remove belt. To remove belt place awrench on the right side on thelug and lift upwards( Counterclockwise). Remove bolts from pully to move the pulley to access the water pump bolts.
Yes it should be visible when you open the hood. You can also tell that it's the water pump by the weep hole that will be on it. If you're going to replace it though, make sure you buy a book and have a torque wrench. Good luck!
If it's red, it's transmission fluid. Coolant would be green. Check the fluid level, don't let it get low, Chrysler minivans are prone to transmission troubles, and low fluid levels over time will ruin a a transmission. And be sure not to overfill, it's just as bad for the trans. Have the leak checked out and repaired, good luck
depends on the engine....a 2.4 requires the removal of the timing belt......on a 3.3 /3.8 the water pump is on the passenger side close to the fire wall.look for an orange or green coored residue in the vacinity of the pump....i would bet its leaking
