Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan
Not much we can do from this end.
You may have to remove the tank to inspect it and the hose.

There are no coolant lines etc running on the lower part of the engine. Usually water will leak from above and run down finally dripping from under the engine. Coolant will not leak from the "engine" it leaks from a hose or thermostat housing.
Start from the top and work down. Check each hose by feeling with your hand. Look for a wet spot. wipe the hosed with a cloth to clean if necessary. If you think you found it dry the area and check again. Sometimes you need to move the hose around to open a small tear and expose the leak source.
If a hose leak tighten the clamp. If torn hose you may be able to disconnect, cut the end and reattach. If too short replace.
Check where each hose connects to the engine. This will be the thermostat housing and the heater supply line. If a housing try gently tightening (careful they crack). Or replace the gasket.
If you don't see a leak at all. Start the engine and run. This will build pressure in the cooling system. Look for leak using the same process. Careful as the engine is hot.

If it's red, it's transmission fluid. Coolant would be green. Check the fluid level, don't let it get low, Chrysler minivans are prone to transmission troubles, and low fluid levels over time will ruin a a transmission. And be sure not to overfill, it's just as bad for the trans. Have the leak checked out and repaired, good luck

SOURCE: 1994 dodge ram coolant leak
The bypass hose from the waterpump to the intake is leaking. It is about four inches long and is directly under the ac compressor and bracket.

Replace the bad radiator hose first. Second- get you special formulated anti-freeze dye from the auto store and pour it into the radiator. Third- make sure you got all the air pockets out of your system, cause the coolant system won't work with air pockets in it. Fourth- Check for leaks by looking for the colored dye. If it's not the radiator hose, then could possibly be a pin hole in your radiator. Would suggest replacing all the radiator hoses at the same time while you got the coolant system disconnected, cause you don't want to have to come back and replace another hose in a few months.
