It depends.

With air conditioning it calls for 2.2 Hours
Without air conditioning calls for 1.7 Hours
With an auxilliry transmission cooler, add 0.2 Hours

This does not include diagnose cooling system (drain and refill and pressure test).

This can also vary slightly depending on which labor guide you are using.

What might the issue be with my 2002 dodge caravan overheating?

Hi, No you did not break anything. It just happened by coinsident.
You need to replace the thermostat and put new fluid in. Not just water. If it happens again do a radiator flush and check if fan is working properly. Good luck.

How do I fix this coolant leak?

This could be a hose or a radiator leak.

And antifreeze is supposed to be bright green or pink for a car of that age. Brown is never a good color for antifreeze--it means car was run with too little antifreeze for a significant period of time and the block and water pump has rusted internally. This is not a threat to the engine block, but it will kill the water pump eventually.

Find the leak, and take appropriate action--if it's a hose, you can replace that yourself and save $. If it's the radiator or even heater core (not likely), it's a trip to the shop for sure, unless you are able to handle the degree of difficulty that goes along with replacing a radiator (about 6-7 on a 10-scale, and usually a major hassle). A radiator shop can fix the leak, saving you new radiator $.

Radiator leaking terribly (97 Grand Caravan, 3.8L)

Radiators with plastic top and bottom tanks have a limited life and if they leak it is usually terminal and will probably need to be replaced. Any radiator shop can pressure test your system. Replacement is not a huge job but radiators have become relatively expensive.

2005 Dodge Caravan Transmission 5 times

PLEASE don't take it back to an automotive shop. transmissions are 10x more complicated than the engine itself. most the time the shop will act like they know what is wrong but they don't. take it to a transmission technician , someone who specializes in transmissions, because the shop will keep trying expensive repairs just for the money. you could have replaced your tranny and it could have been a sensor
