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.
I can get to it but how does one get it out?
If you remove the right front plastic fender liner on the caravan, the water pump is lower right of the engine.
The AC drain on a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan EX is located underneath the front of the vehicle. Often, when the drain is clogged, water will leak into your vehicle and get the floorboards wet.
The water pump on a 3.0L is inside, driven by the timing belt.
It is directly below centre of pump.
inside the timing cover, the timing belt moves it
Water is leaking on passenger side floor board when heat is on
The water pump is located inside the front of the engine, driven by the timing belt.
Rear most and lowest pulley on the serpentine belt.
behind the timing cover you should change the timing belt when you change water pump.
I paid about 200 last year- that was for parts and labor.
Head gasket, timing cover gasket, or hose leaking.
Where is the water pump???
Drain the water from your 1991 Dodge Caravan 3.3 liter engine cooling system. Remove the water return hose from your water pump. Remove the water pump belt. Remove the water pump retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new water pump.
Possible freeze plug leak at rear of engine block.
It is at the lower end of the top radiator hose within the water outlet. I hope this helps you. Mark
It varies according to who does it. Not cheap,as engine must be removed
you have to drain the antifreeze/coolant so it would be wise.
A Chrysler/Dodge dealer can get that part.
Dodge doesn't have a 4.8 liter engine so I am not sure that there is an answer.
It is on the bottom of the washer bottle.
