FROM Beast of Burden Touch Chrysler/Mitsubishi 3.0L V6 Engine By Larry Carley, Technical Editor
..The water pump pulley runs off the timing belt[..to drive the overhead cams]. The recommended replacement interval is 60,000 miles , and considering how much effort is involved to get at these parts it's probably a good idea to replace the water pump, too. Also, check the tube that runs from the back of the pump to the back of the engine. Replace it if it is corroded or leaking. The service life of the OEM water pumps is about the same as the timing belt, so it makes sense to replace both at the same time. You may save yourself a comeback and you'll certainly save your customer a lot of money on labor by doing both jobs at once.
..This engine has two inlet coolant pipes that connect from the heater core and the rear of the engine to the water pump. The pipes are located in the valley of the cylinder block. These pipes are sealed with O-rings on the ends and become easily distorted when the engine is disassembled. If the pipes become distorted or the O-rings are not replaced air can enter the cooling system immediately after start-up.
To check for this after air is detected in a system, check for hydrocarbons in the coolant. If no hydrocarbons are present, look for these pipes to be leaking.
According to the service manuals for the 1993-1995 LeBarons with 3.0 Litres V6, the recommended timing belt replacement interval is not 60000 miles, it is 100000 miles (somewhat more than 1550000 kms. It is recommended to replace the water pump and the poulley, too. If the timing belt rips, it does not damage your engine, so do not care.
You have to calculate at least 5, up to 10 hrs to replace it yourself. I wrote a photo documented manual 2 years ago, but the text is in german, maybe you could have a look at my pictures to see, what is to do and to estimate the time you will use....
