Great part. Seemed to be better than the original. Contrary to what so many others are saying about installing this part, you DO NOT NEED TO DROP THE ENGINE! You don't even need to lower it. I have a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport 3.3l Flex Fuel. The wheel that attaches to the water pump is made such that there is a cut out in the center that is the same shape/size as the part of the water pump it connects to. You just undo the bolts from the wheel before you remove the pump. You can push the wheel back on the pump and then remove the bolts from the pump. The whole thing slides right out. I did mine total from start to finish in about 1.5 hours. Is it a bit of a pain? Yes, especially if you're not used to laying under a van on ramps, but I've seen worse. Good Luck!

Great construction - just wouldn't fit.

Excellent construction compared to the competitor (which had plastic fins for the impeller). Gasket seems of above average quality as well.

Only problem - I couldn't get it to fit...Read complete review

Excellent construction compared to the competitor (which had plastic fins for the impeller). Gasket seems of above average quality as well.

Only problem - I couldn't get it to fit our 2005 Town and Country (3.8L engine). It has the right mount points, etc. However, if you measure the ASC part vs. the original factory part, the ASC is ever so slightly wider, which didn't leave enough room to slide the impeller into the mount point.

I spent about 45 minutes trying to manipulate the part into place, where I could easily install the original part and competitors part. It may just have been me, though.

    Comments about ToughOne Water Pump - New:

    Not a bad looking part,did come with a new gasket. It is a little tricky to flat fate this pump. Not a super fan of after market pumps because they usually don't last very long. But have used this brand in the past and it been ok. Have had to replace these new ones with in a year every once in awhile due to bearing failures.

          Comments about ToughOne Water Pump - New:

          This thing was a pain to install on my 04 town and country. With the wheel off you can get all but one bolt (the furthest back) out, and worse yet, getting it in. The only way to do so was to drop the engine a couple inches, get under the van, reach through a couple large holes in the frame and feel my way around. Knowing that trick ahead of time would have made the process much easier. Dropping the engines sounds bad but it wasn't. Just a jack under the oil pan with a piece of wood to distribute the weight. Remove the three bolts and lower the jack.

                Original water pump started making noise and water coming from weep hole. Since I have dealt with Advance for many years, they were my choice to go to. Knowing the employees at the local Advance store, I ordered the part on line and picked up at the store here in Robertsdale, Al. Pump has been instaled and working great at this time. I will continue to purchase my parts from Advance.

                Just a replacement product because of a leak. very hard to install w/o a lift. The heat has never been better and i saved a bundle installing it myself but would niot reccomend it if you can afford to pay a professional.

                Comments about ToughOne Water Pump - New:

                Take a look at other reviews regarding getting the pump out and the new one back in. I don't know how consistant the clearance is between vehicles, but on my 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan, 3.3L Flexi-Fuel there was one and only one way to get the pump in and out. As someone pointed out the first step is to unbolt the pulley and take advantage of the cutouts in the pulley face to move the pulley toward the pump body. Ths makes the depth dimension of the pump and the clearance to the frame rail the controlling factors.
                For 20 minutes I would have sworn the pump would not fit between the two. Part of the issue is the impeller and impeller hub which protrude into the pump housing. Then suddenly, almost magically, the whole thing dropped right out. I didn't have to force it, I just had to find the sweet spot where all the diminsions worked.
                Again, I have no idea if this will be consistent from vehicle to vehicle, but the best I can describe it is from the perspective of lying under the vehicle with my head toward the front. The pump had to be oriented with the top vent hole down at about 45 degrees and toward the passenger side at about 45 degrees. Then the impeller has to be rotated to minimize the clearance needed.
                Trust me, this also requires faith that the magic spot really does exist.
