The water pump on a 3.3L is accessed at the front passenger side. Removing the wheel and inner wheel well splash guard makes it really easy to get to.. Before you start, drain the cooling system. Have pails, buckets, or other containers to catch everything. You might want some rags too. I usually disconnect the lower radiator hose, which is right there are the pump, and drain it into a 5 gallon bucket since I put the van up (all 4 wheels) on jack stands. It takes a little more time, but makes it easier if I do have to crawl under the van for something (like that darn screw/bolt or socket that just ran off) While the coolant is draining, you can use a belt tensioner tool to release pressure on the serpentine belt. Pull the Tensioner tool TOWARDS you to release pressure and slip the belt, at the tensioner, towards the engine so that it is just off the tensioner. Your next step will be to remove the pump pulley (4 bolts) then then the bolts attaching pump housing to engine, and finally remove pump. Clean the "O"ring sealing area and check the opending for dirt, debris, etc. before Installing the new pump. Installation is just the reverse. Add antifreeze mixture. Ensure that correct is added back in, etc. To make sure that all air is released, I usually run the engine for a while (up to 30 minutes) with the heater turned on and the radiator cap removed. Watch and add coolant as needed. I then check the levels again after a drive and cool down period. I usually buy the Mopar OE pumps through a dealer as I've been told by a number of people that the aftermarket pumps last about 1/2 as long... Most people say the OEMs last 5 to 10 years. and aftermarket rebuilt pumps seems to last around 2 to 5 years.
