Engine Cooling problem
2000 Dodge Intrepid 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 152000 miles

we discovered a leakage of coolant where the lower radiator hose gose into the radiator - its not the hose but at the connection. The dealership called and said that it was the water pump that is leaking. Can find a schematic just yet - is the water pump in this area? Is it hard to get to? They want $1500+ to repair. Also want $700+ to replace fan motors -something we've done before for a fraction of the cost. The water pump is new terittory for us. Input appreciated

If it is a water pump, price depends on engine size 3.2 and 3.5 liter engines are less expensive than a 2.7 liter engine. A 2.7 liter engine is about 8 hours of labor(hard job). Make sure its a water pump good luck to you
