Asked by Sep 27, 2016 at 08:45 AM about the 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 grand caravan that has a 1/2 hole open in the back of the
casing. it appears that there was once a plug there but I am not sure. It is
leaking of course from this hole.Does this mean the water pump needs
replacing and can I find a new plug to insert in the hole?

I cant seem to find replacement plugs. Does it come with the pump or do you know where to get them?


No plug needs to be replaced.

There is a hole in the back of the pump that has signs of leaking. See Photo



Did you look at the picture? If this hole is not plugged it will leak. I am thinking that there was a frost plug or something similar there.


Ok sounds like you are pretty persistent on a plug goes into that hole so here is what you do take the picture with you to the nearest part store and ask them for a replacement plug for that hole if anyone should have it should be them.


Calm down Fireplug338. For sure StubbyH you need a water pump.
