Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
I would look for a cracked hose first. Then I would look over the installation of the thermostat. Common mishap is that the gasket is not installed or the old one was used again. There is also the possibility that the bolts are not torqued enough or that they were stripped due from over torquing.
Try to find out exactly where the leak is coming from, it should lead you to your problem area. If it is a decent leak, you should be able to find it while the engine is off and squeezing the hoses to and from your radiator. If not, you will have to run the engine...be careful of moving parts while putting your hands/face/loose clothing around the engine. Also keep watch of the engine temp while doing this inspection in case you are having a deeper issue with engine cooling.
Hope this helps.
