    I have 99 Gr. Caravan with 3.8L and approx. 62,500 km or 39,062 miles.
    I noticed this weekend there is a small amount of coolant leaking from
    the water pump.
    Is it normal for a water pump to leak with less than 40,000 miles on
    these van?

    Also, how hard is it to replace the water pump on these van.

  2. i had the same problem with my 97' GV,
    just be sure if you or whoever installs a NEW one and uses a good gasket and

  3. Good gasket, YES. NO GLUE!!!!!!!!!
    Maybe a little RTV if you FEEL you need added sealing security, but
    GLUE is not needed, unless you are selling it to your brother-in-law
    you don't like and hoping the pump goes out again while HE has it.
