    Likely it won't do anything. The unit holds around ten quarts of fluid, making even as much as one quart not significant. Check to see when it's due for a routine fluid change. if you are close to that time, you could do it early if you are concerned, or the next time it's a bit low, you could add lucas conditioner and sealer which should off-set any effects of what you added.

If it is an automatic, it is hte right stuff. If it is a manual it might work better than the conventional transmission oil that is recommended. Many manufacturers have been recommend it ATF for a few years as the lubricant of choice for their manual boxes and numerous people have changed over of their own will.

Type of tranny fluid I have no owners manual

All Chrysler products (dodge caravan) require "atf +"
in your case being a 2003 that should be type ATF+3
I would recommend using ATF+4 as a just in case measure as it will be perfectly compatability with (and better than) ATF+3 if that's what is currently installed.
The Trans in the 03 caravan takes 11 total quarts. This includes torque converter. If you are doing a simple fluid and filter change than start w with 5 quarts as will still be full. Absolutely under NO circumstances use dextron/mercon (gm) OR ATF type F (ford). Hope this helps.

What caused trans fluid to leak at rear of trans? what is the reccomendation for ATF fluid?

The rear seal is likely to blame, A relatively cheap fix if you know how to remove the drive shaft. as Far as trans fluid, Chrysler products unless competely flushed and torque converter is emptied and flushed as well, stick with ATF+3, or ATF+4. If you mix a dextron atf with atf+(3)(4), frothing will occur.
