How To Replace The Water Pump In A 2001 Dodge Ram 1500




What do you think about this video?

Renaissance MarineTV: great vid. I used it to guide me thru the replacement. worked great!

showntell49: Good video, thanks. One thing I personally do different is to use a nut driver for hose clamps ( they won't slip off). I was taught to apply teflon tape the opposite of the way the video showed. That way the free end can't come unwrapped. I also thought new hoses came w/ a coil spring.

Joe cool: This is not an all day project, but a good video. From start to finish it only took 1 1/2 hours and I am by no means a mechanic.

Gary Redmond: Im getting ready to replace my front crank seal.. what size bolts did you use for that clutch fan

fscoggs@gmail.com Nitika13: Check out this video on YouTube:

dadrules714: Great job guys! thanks

jbk692000: Just want to say thanks for posting this video. Obviously from the comments below you've helped alot of people with this. It was very educational. The internet is awesome! Thanks!

Dub DaToolman: You guys saved my some major coin thank you for this informative and descriptive video keep up the good work

Steve Almquist: Agree on quality of video. That bypass hose is only thing missing.

David Powell: Very informative! If you don't have AC you can disregard the instructions regarding the compressor assembly. The hoses and bolts you need to access on the water pump are exposed without having remove any additional parts (i.e. air cleaner and compressor).

eyoung646: You guys are awesome! I never tried to do anything like this. I followed to the t. Took me 4 1/2 hrs. Saved a Ton of dough!!!!!! Thanks

wood brass and glass: I busted mine out in 4 hours on the side of the road. 

Rusty Johnston: outstanding video. took longer to watch this than it did to change the pump. as a matter of fact, I'm still watching it.

eric Frates: That was a very hepful, and very detailed video. Thank you.

Audrey H: Thank you so much for this GREAT video! Very detail. I just done with my 2005 RAM 1500. Little bit different, but less job than 01 model

SpockMcoy Issmart: also, do remember the orientation of the fan blade when replacing clutch. The fan actually has imprinted in metal 'front' ..........you don't want to flip the fan backwards.

SpockMcoy Issmart: very similar to the water pump on a 5.9L 2500/2002. I changed the bypass hose which needs to remove the alternator/aluminum bracket to access. I changed the tstat and rad cap too. the steel tube in the side of the pump would not come out of the old pump, so I got a new one at autozone for $10. Unfortunately, my pump went in -10 degree weather, and I had to work in my driveway. I was not as fast as this since some parts didn't want to come off in that cold weather [old gasket material], etc.

DL9619: i have a 97 ram 1500 and i was woundering what i could do for a noisy serpentine belt i have tried two new belts and cleaning the water pump pully and i still have a constant noise. also it is a 318 motor

Tony Tenko: great instruction and video ,, not a rush through ,, on parts and tools an also how is done and what you would need ,,, one of the best {how to remove / install }

Erica Winfrey: Very informative video, best I've seen.

MrRover2007: Thank you for this great video!

TheBustercam: What size motor ?

Keri Garcia: i can not get my coolant return tube off the old water pump any ideas as to where I can buy one or get it off?

Mitch Cooley: Thanks to your video, I as able to replace my water pump - by myself.

rinsetwice: quick question, I just replaced mine in my 98 ram 2500 and used blue rtv gasket sealer for water pumps on the gasket, the packet of rtv says dry in one hour and cured in 24 hours so do I wait 24 hours before filling it with coolant or am I good to fill it and drive it an hour later? it didnt say anything on the tube about when I can put the vehicle to use.

Tito Oz: congratulations ! this was a great help !!! thank you

Josh Flagg: Any ideas if it'd be the same procedure on a 2002 Ram 3500 Van?

TOXIXIFY: Wouldn't you want to replace the thermostat at the same time?

Ronald Pahl: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. You guys made this a very easy job..

John Deaton: the radiator is infront of the fan.

Christopher Johnson: GREAT video!

momeyerjr: video seems very good, just noticed today that my sons truck 2000 5.2 appears to be leaking from the weep hole. I'm just doing research as I'm a Chevy guy and have never worked on a Dodge. Thanks for the video, they are usually great aides. You didn't say how you torqued the fan/clutch bolt, because to take it off you used the funky wrench set

j klein: Thanks! awesome step by step with great visibility.

anthony corbin: great video, just watched it to replace my pump, however, I now have a leak some where. I am wondering if it is the "bypass" hose. the video dose not show how to replace this? any information would be appreciated .

Christopher Johnson: The top water pump bolt was changed to a recessed torx 50 on later models because there is not enough clearance for the standard 14mm socket between bolt head and top of pully. (I used a 12' long thing handle boxend 14mm wrench on my '95 RAM. Also, instead of the special pin spannier wrench for the 36mm fan bolt removal, I used a 14" long channel lock pliers to grasp two of the four bolt heads - stop pulley turning - and a 12" long crescent wrench to loosen and remove the 36mm fan spindle nut.

angello geloski: thanks for your advises. you doing good job guys.

gmaples7: Did you remove the radiator? It doesn't mention it in the video, but it seems like you have a lot of room to work in there.

Emanuel Garcia: How do you change the fan?

Stevan Lasorella: Great video. Very helpful. I'm going to replace mine this week.

Txbassmaster96: Video was posted just days after I struggled with mine

gleciamanda: Thanks. Great way to help us step by step.

K Lew: Great Job!!! Very detailed presentation. Helped me to replace the water pump on my 1997 Dodge Ram 1500.... KevinL

SS Starscream: Yikes, lots of silicone.

Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
