How difficult is it to replace water pump on a 1997 dodge grand caravan 3.3L?

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.

Location of water pump 2004 caravan. is it visible when you open the hood

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!

2004 Dodge Grand Caravan Water pump

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

2001 Grand Caravan no heat and occasional over heating.

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
