SOURCE: antifreeze smell and smoke coming out of vents

You have a coolant leak most likely in the heater core. Try disconnecting your heater hoses and coupling them together, then running the engine to see if the leak goes away. If it does, I would have the heater core replaced.

SOURCE: power steering hose leak

as long as you use a flair nut wrench on the fittings it's not that hard. Since you aren't going to use the old hose over, if the nuts are frozen you can break the line off and use a socket to get them off. Don't loose any "o" rings (new kit comes with them as needed but make sure you know where the old ones are. New lines are often a slightly different shape than old one...make sure line is not rubbing on anything or it will wear through.
After filling, turn the wheel gently all the way to one side, then the other and re-check level. Most times any noise at pump will disappear after use,as any residual air bleeds out.

Smell antifreeze

Sounds as if your heater core is leaking or you have a leak in the heater fluid hoses. need to check the hoses by the fire wall to see if you see any liquid staining. Also check the floor board inside to see if there is any moisture there. But for all accounts it sounds like a heater core or hose leaking problem.

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan leaking fluid

Since the Caravan is front wheel drive, there would be no transmission lines running to the rear of the vehicle. This reduces the possibilities to either a fuel leak, or a brake line. If you smell the fluid you should be able to tell immediately if it were gasoline. This would be a dangerous thing. Fuel leaks must be isolated and repaired quickly to avoid risk of fire. If it were brake fluid, and the leak were stead, you should, if you inspect the brake master cylinder reservoir, a lower level of fluid than normal, possibly even a total loss of fluid in the rear chamber. If so, then the brake line to the rear has probably ruptured from age/corrosion. It must be repaired or replaced.

I have a 2006 dodge grand caravan that is leaking either power steering or antifreeze. The power steering is full but there was redish orange liquid leaking. The antifreeze is low and a horrible smell...

The horrible smell is antifreeze leaking from the heater core. This is the more serious of two leaks. You might be able to fix it with some stop leak. You can also tighten the power steering hoses.

2005 Dodge Grand Caravan SE 6 Cyl 3.3L Transmission fluid leaking from cooler lines that is directly in front of the rear right wheel... what is the part these lines go into? I have a big puddle of...

It sounds like you have a couple of issues here, so lets start with the transmission one first. What it sounds like is that you have a busted hose, and the good news is that it is not expensive to repair. You will need to get under the vehicle and find the hose or hoses that are leaking and cut a piece of each hose off so that you can take it to the parts store and get the correct hose to replace it or them. I would recommend getting new hose clamps as well to re-attach the hoses. It also seems that you have some type of radiator leak if your vehicle is running hotter than usual. The leak could be a slow one and that could be the reason that it went un-noticed. The reason that the heater is not working even though the cars engine is hot is that the water that is used to cool the engine is scalding hot and that hot water flows through your heater core and that is how heat can be selected and blow hot air out of the vents. If there is not enough water, then there will not be any heat. This is some thing that you will also want to address immediately as if the engine runs hot due to a lack of water/antifreeze then you will run a high risk of damaging or blowing the motor and that would not be good. My advice is that you locate the cooling system leak and fix it ASAP to avoid some costly damage. A lot of cooling system leaks are, the water pump, radiator cap or bad hoses, so make sure that you check them thoroughly. I hope that you have found this information helpful as that is my goal.

My 1999 dodge grand caravan is overheating and the antifreeze keeps draining out and you can see puddles on the floor what could it be and it has 114k miles on it

This sounds like you may have a hole in your radiator. First pull your radiator cap off while the car is off look in there and see if there is any fluid in there. If not fill with antifreeze. Once you have done this wait a minute and see if it leaks out if so then there is a leak in the radiator. Next if this doesn't provide an answer look at your hoses you could have a leak in one of the hoses from the radiator to the engine.

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.
