CHRYSLER TOWN AND COUNTRY TIMING COVER PROBLEM
2007 Chrysler Town and Country • 97,000 miles
No clue to the name of this part. It is where the water pump and its pulley connect as well as the water inlet tube. Appears the nipple that was part of this is broken and the hose is no longer attached and the coolant/water is running out of this. I need to know the name of the part and then go from there.

Issue is no dealer service center near me is open nor do I have a way to get there right now. Wife at work until this evening so hoping to have name of part so I can price and check availability at local auto parts store.
Thanks Roy. Any chance this can be repaired or is a new timing cover needed? This a simple enough repair for a do it your selfer or a pro needed? Trying to decide if it is worth the repair at this point, if the car is worth that much in repairs. I was told that is a $1000 part, so throw in potential labor and I am not sure I want to spend that.
Last question, I am looking or attempting to look up this part. When I look up timing cover it does not look like the failed part. But reading about the coolant system, it is the part the water pump fills with liquid and connects to the hose that sends coolant to the engine. From the images I found on timing covers, this is not it. I am still really lost on WHAT this part is called. I need a really detailed diagram of my vans coolant system and engine system.
OK, just watched a youtube video on the same engine as I have, and the mechanic called the part the water pump housing. Of course I can't get an image of it, but I am sure that is the culprit. Now the question is how difficult is it to get tis part and how difficult to replace it. Any advice Roy?
