Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

1998 Dodge Caravan is leaking pink fluid and we think it has something to do with the front axle as its jerking while steering? Power Steering fluid is full, but the transmission fluid is empty. Could it be the axle or transmission seal?

Leaking power steering fluid


You are likely seeing auto trans fluid. It is often used as a substitute for power steering fluid. You say it's leaking badly so someone probably got tired of paying for power steering fluid and switched to the much cheaper ATF.

What is the pink stuff leaking from the heads on my 1997 dodge grand caravan


The only "pink" fluids are:
1. Transmission fluid 2. Power steering fluid 3. Some types of washer fluid (rare) 4. Some types of AntiFreeze-Coolant are red, although most (80%) are lime or yellow/green.
The most common fluid leak from the head is coolant and is usually form a gasket leak. You say heads as in plural, which I take to mean a V6 engine. But since having both head having a leaking gasket is remote I assume that there was a typo and you are referring to one head.
Are you loosing fluid from the radiator and/or having overheating problem, then suspect the head gasket, It is a major repair.
Post comment with additional info, ie exact location of fluid and how much. Is it leaking to the floor? When does it leak the most, standing cold or engine running hot? Doesthe fluid feel oily or more just like water?

2002 power steering leak.. from drivers side behind engine.. looks like about in front of drivers feet.... a bracket is in the way to see real good from just looking behind drivers front wheel. cant see...


I am 99.9% sure you have a steering rack leaking, this is a very common problem with this vehicle. The easy way to check is to take a small pick and poke one of the ribs of the boot / dust cover of the rack. Being that this is a dust cover there should be no fluid drip out, if fluid is present replace the steering rack.

1998 Dodge Grnd Caravan is leaking steering fluid. Hoses appear to be in good shape. Could this indicate an imminent steering pump failure?


Hard to say where the leak is coming from. Check to see if on the end of the rubber hose (where it meets the metal) is saturated. If it is more than likely your high pressure line is starting to leak. Common problem in alot of vehicles.

How do i remove the Powersteering pump in my 1998


Replace the ps pump, brake fluid is not a lubricant, your pump is scored, raise the van, block it, remove the sheild, belt and right axle, and remove the pump, you will have to flush the system with 4-5 litres of PS fliud only. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP
