These answers are all wrong. The factory requires "Hybrid Organic Additive Technology"(HOAT) and it is orangish in color.

Where is it leaking from? The radiator its self, the heater core found under the dash, or some where in between? Look for pools of coolant under the front floor mats, If you find it there, then the heater core needs to be replaced. Next time it happens, Pull over immediately and look under the car to see where it is leaking, (look from more than one angle). Or park it over some clean cardboard, where ever the stains are, will give you a clue of where to look for the problem. And most easy, Bring it back to the mechanic who installed the new radiator., Most legitimate mechanics warrant their work and yours may be responsible in some way, or at least be familiar with your particular Caravan.
The solution is to locate and fix the leak, but also perform a thouro cooling system flush. The system bay have serious dirt, clay, or corrosion that is causing issues with proper flow and pressure, thus causing leaks.
And Always Pull Over when it begins to OverHeat! Heat damage to an engine can spell Death to any Car, even Caravans. Good Luck.

SOURCE: 2006 Grand Caravan: Can't get pcv valve from a 3.8 dodge grand caravan...

I just replaced mine and had the same problem. If you look at the new one, you should find a small hole at the base of the metal tube. Using a mirror, I located the same hole in the one in the valve cover and inserted a pointed awl into it and was able to pry it out. Do it slowly since you are prying against plastic. When inserting the new one, I found that it should not be inserted as far the original one was and has a gentle snap.

A 50/50 mix of Ethylene Glycol and distilled water is what you'd want. Brands like Prestone and Zerex are available premixed in that 50/50 ratio and available at any good auto parts store or Walmart. Prestone Extended Life Prediluted Antifreeze Coolant

What type of engine coolant does a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan?

provided that all the old coolant is completly flushed out any good 50-50 low no silacates antifreeze will work. The trational Green fluilds will all mix with each other b ut not the other colors, Some combinations will gel or silt up and then insulate or clog up the compleate cooling system. All antifreezes are marked to tell you what manufacyures minium spechs they will pass. The thing to remember is all the old fluild ( no matter what kind it is) Needs to be completely flushed out with clear water. and if your mixing the new coolant yourself it's best to use distilled water as many of the additives to drinking water aren't nessaryly a good coolant. Of course your dealer will sell you the Chysler Anti freeze for your car but you don't have to and the ones that are marked 50/50 are ready to go you just pour them in.

What kind of antifreeze can be used for 99 dodge grand caravan, I was told that it had to be a special kind of antifreeze in it. is this true?

you should be using an antifreeze that is ethylene glycol based in your van,the easiest way to tell which is which is the color,if you system is green,then aqdd green to top off,if it is full of yellow then top of with yellow,but if you mix them you coolant will turn dark and look bad.if you have drained the entire system and are refilling now,I would suggest going with the yellow.
