You would need to do a pressure test if you can't visually see where the leak is coming from. Coolant leaks don't usually just stop. Chances are you have no coolant left. I would get this checked out immediately before you run into overheating issues and damage the engine.

this happens alot on older vehicles most often times because the coolant hose shrink and expand around a fitting. try and tighten all coolant clamps. this often is all it takes to solve the problem. you should also look to see that all seals around heads of engine show no seepage

SOURCE: the van stalls without notice at times when ready

This sounds like a classic case of either a dirty/faulty IAC (Idle Air Control) motor or a sticking EGR valve. If you can prevent it from stalling by keeping your fot on the gas slightly and it always restarts right away and runs good when restarted, I'd suspect the IAC first. If it "chugs"when stopping and will run rough even with a little (not a lot) of gas pedal and/or it runs rough when restarted, I'd suspect the EGR.

The coil pack or coil could be going bad.
If it has a miss, the OBD-II system can sometimes detect which cylinder it is in.
Check to see if any codes come up, even in the SES light is not on.

May not be either. Does the van run hot? If it doesn't then the coolant when it is heated is going to the overflow reservoir and if that fills up then out the overflow line to the driveway or the garage floor but everything is O.K.

Antifreeze Leak & difficulty reversing on 2002 Dodge Caravan

you prolly have a bad rad cap. does your overflow stay full ? so it vents while you drive only and you may never see the drips

well the rear issue may be a sticking e brake cable and or pad do you use the ebrake ? if not apply the parking brake and drive it around the block to burn off any rust there may be to help it stick( don't burn them up just clean them up)

Leaking antifreeze and it's not a pipe or the water pump

May require vehicle on hoist or at least on ramps, and a flashlight/troublelight to see exactly where its coming from. Could be just a frost plug, but until you can pinpoint the spot, don't drive it, or run it for that matter & cost yourself more money.
