You sorta had me going crazy on that one
Your engine size is a 3.0
Your water pump is driven off of the serpentine belt up front, is that correct?
The water pump is not timed
The only way the water pump might even play into being timed is if it were being driven by a "timing belt". So far it looks like your vehicle has a timing chain. Basically the water pump is just a freewheeling accessory.
I did find you a diagram, it looks as though one of your bolts needs sealant on it. Look at the diagram and you will see which one. If you will, verify this is the way your water pump looks.
Like I said before Jeeps are my thing, I don't work on cars very often except for my family and friends. I did not mean to maybe mislead you, I knew the answer to your original question, that's why answered you!
I really try to help out, but I also try not to get in over my head!
You really need to get it Jeep you don't know what you're missing!
Let me know if I might try to get you anything else!
