It's a pretty bad setup. Maybe consider swapping to the 2003 and up electric cooling fan assembly? Search and you can find what it takes to swap it out. Big job but you will be fighting the hydraulic setup forever otherwise.

I just had issues with my pump leaking and found it costly to fix not that but a major pain my backside . Believe it or not . It was 10 times less and easier to just pull the crap out and get a after market cooling fan. I spent a little over 125 bucks for everything and just under a day's work and it's doing fine. The fan I got was a 1/4 inch bigger then stock and I did a little bit tuck and pulled the junk fan from the shroud and placed it over the new fan and now I'm looking for a way to make the pump pull work as is but still it's much nicer to have to not look at a puddle of money on the ground under my car every day .

Well I hope you the best and you don't have problems with it. How ever. Electric fan has preformed perfect. My temp is still up to half way and as for the pump and keeping the pulley ....we'll here is what I did ( very stupid on my part ) but I left the pulley and pump just deleted the hoses and here I am a week later replacing the belt that came off not break but come off because the pulley gave in and come off so I was reading a post on here that you just take the pump off all together and run a smaller belt . So I did just that I removed the pump and the normal belt that go's on the car is 105 inches ran around the correct way but I bought a belt that is 100 inches and ran it the same way only no fan pump it's been working great so far and I do believe it will for a long time. I'll see if I can find the post I read it from and get you the part number for the belt I'd say just give it a try you may just do the same thing and be fine with it.

Its actually not that bad to remove go from the bottom ...if you have a V6 go from the top but a 3.9 is easier if you work from the bottom ...remember to flush all the Mercon V out of the entire system and refill with fresh clean Transmission fluid also remember on the 1st Gens the AC must be properly charged in order for your fan to go on high speed when you have the defrost or AC turned on ...if you have any questions about removing it let me know ..

Also you can bench test the actuator with a 12v battery if you hear it click when power is hooked up it's working properly

...also remember on the 1st Gens the AC must be properly charged in order for your fan to go on high speed when you have the defrost or AC turned on ...
This is true for both generations. Fan speed in both cases is based on engine temperature and the high-side AC pressure. Even correctly charged, if the AC demand is low (not very hot outside), then the pressure will not be very high and the fan will not be commanded to a very high speed.
