If the water pump is gone is that a bad sign. There is a 1997 Dodge Caravan bding sold and the water pump is blown.Is it worth it to buy this for 600.00
depends on which motor it has. if it has a 3.0 l v-6 then it is a big job to change. if it is a 4 cyl or a 3.3,3.8 then not so bad.
Depends what you call big job: I changed the water pump to my 3.0L in a Saturday (9AM-3PM) with common sense, a set of tools, a cold six-pack and a good shadow. Changed timing belt & tensioner as well. Saved about $300.00 in labor. Make sure its only the water pump. If it has overheated, you may have some other problems.
i have done it many times before. with a shop and air tools its only a 2 hour job.doing the timing belt is always the right thing to do when you are in there.
I have a 1997 dodge caravan it is a 3.0 v6 an it overheated an stalled out an wont start now it did it all at once so idk whats wrong with it i think its the water pump please give me some advice
