How do I change a water pump on a 1993 Dodge Shadow 3.0, we recently had the radiator replaced and I am still losing coolant.

Disconnect negative battery cable. Remove accessory drive belts. Remove A/C compressor and power steering pump with hoses attached, and secure aside (if equipped). Remove A/C compressor mounting bracket and drive belt tensioner. Remove power steering/alternator belt tensioner.
Raise and support vehicle. Remove right inner fender shield. Remove crankshaft pulleys and vibration damper. Lower vehicle. Support engine with floor jack. Separate right (timing belt side) engine mount from engine mount bracket located in front of timing belt cover.
Slightly raise engine. Remove engine mount bracket. Remove timing belt covers, noting bolt length for installation reference. Rotate engine and align timing marks on camshaft sprockets and crankshaft sprocket.
If reusing timing belt, mark direction of timing belt rotation for installation reference.
Loosen timing belt tensioner bolt. Move timing belt tensioner away from timing belt. Remove timing belt. Note direction of flange installation on front of crankshaft, in front of crankshaft sprocket.
Drain cooling system. Remove water pump mounting bolts. Remove water pump.
To install, reverse removal procedure using NEW gasket. Install NEW "O" ring on coolant inlet pipe. Apply water to "O" ring before installing pump. DO NOT apply grease to "O" ring. Install remaining components. Fill cooling system
