Question about 2006 Dodge Caravan

I have a 2006 dodge grand caravan that is leaking either power steering or antifreeze. The power steering is full but there was redish orange liquid leaking. The antifreeze is low and a horrible smell came through the vents.

The horrible smell is antifreeze leaking from the heater core. This is the more serious of two leaks. You might be able to fix it with some stop leak. You can also tighten the power steering hoses.

Hi, when you replace all of that did you put the cooler on the power steering lines , If not check and see if yours have one car, it is mount on the center support where your rack and pinion is mounted. if you down have on you need to get one there is a tsb on all caravans for this problem .Then you have to bleed power steering system. Thanks if i can help further re post.

Fuel is leaking from the van redish orenge and this happen while i was trying to get out of my drive way. My steering wheel do not stop turning so I take it is my power steering. It may be something else

The redish orenge liquid you see is likely power steering fluid.

The power steering circuit is leaking somewhere.

Inspect/have the circuit inspected looking for busted hose, loose clamps or steering rack leaking.

Depending if the leak is severe or not you can try to add power steering oil in your power steering reservoir up to the right level indicated on the stick. Put the cap in place, start the engine and turn you steering wheel few times gently going from one extremity to the other and reversely. After few times you should/could have recuperated power. However, eventhough it works, for your safety fix the problem as soon as possible.
Hope it will help
