Changing the water pump is easy — it took me 45 minutes TOTAL for everything listed here!
I own and drive a 1994 Town and Country, 3.8L V6.
Like I said earlier, this process takes under an hour, and is easy to do, just follow the steps to the letter and you will be fine. If you break a bolt off in the housing, drill it, use an easy-out to remove the remains, re-tap if necessary, and put in a new bolt.
I got lucky and didn't break any bolts. I had a couple that wouldn't budge, but a couple light taps with a ball peen hammer in the end of the ratchet got 'em loose.
