Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
Three reasons for leaks out of pump area( really 4 but the pump seal is never the leak)1 someone has not sealed the pan properly and fluid is seeping up through pan bolt hole into bell housing and leaking out.2 pump oring is old and hard due to heat and time (most common)3 someone has repaired a pump oring or rebuilt the transmiision and used a threade rod slide hammer to remove the pump(big no no) and damage the sealing area where the pump bolts seal(can silicone the bolts to fix this).I would pull the bottom pan and clean both surfaces with brake clean and allow the trans to drain for an hour , then apply a 1/8 inch bead of black or ultra grey pematex all the way around tthe clean dry pan( make sure you go to the inside of bolt holes and not the outside) allow the silicone to cure for 5 minutes before you mate the pan with the case.Good luck!
