Question about 2000 Chrysler Town & Country
Leaking coolant on passenger side of vehicle and transmission fluid on drivers side. This is quote after inspection: "SOLENIOD PACK LEAKING COOLER LINES TO RADIATOR LEAKING TIMING COVER LEAKING SUGGEST WATERPUMP AT SAME TIME LOWER HOSE AND TIMING CHAIN VALVE COVER GASKETS"
There are no commas so I can only guess that there are 3-4 separate problems. Could you decipher this and tell me if it can be fixed without having to pay $1000 mechanic fee?
The hoses from the transmission to the gadiatro is leaking. The timing cover might be leaking but acording to what I found from www.autozone.com the waterpump is not behing the timing cover. the hose coming off of the waterpump is leaking. If this helps this is how you remover the waterpump.

Solenoid pack leaking,
Cooler Lines to Radiator leaking,
Timing cover leaking,
They suggest changing the water pump at the same time as the lower rad hose, timing chain, and valve cover gaskets. This is because it either looks like the water pump will die soon, preventative measures, or the shop is trying to rip you off for an hours labor.
Either way, I would suggest taking it to a mechanic, unless you're a bit of a handy man.
Hope I've helped, don't forget to rate.

Fig. The fluid level screw (see arrow) is located above the transaxle pan on the passenger side of the vehicle
Because the transaxle operates correctly over a range of fluid levels, the fluid may or may not drain out of the screw hole after removing the screw. If the fluid drains through the screw hole the transaxle may have been overfilled. When the fluid stops draining the fluid level is correct, and you may install the level screw. If the fluid does not drain through the screw hole, the transaxle may have been low. Add fluid at the vent cap location in 1 pint ( 1 / 2 liter) increments until the oil level is at the bottom of the oil level hole. Use a long necked funnel to avoid spillage.
