Question about 2001 Dodge Caravan
The brake reservoir is underhood. You'll see it mounted to the firewall at the back of the engine bay, in front of the driver's seat position. It's the only reservoir there, and sits on top of a cylinder made of metal. Should say something like DOT3 or DOT4/5 FLUID ONLY on it - that's the brake reservoir.

Bleed the brakes from the farthest brake line first at the rear wheel cyl. and front calipers. 2 people make this easier pump the brakes and hold down have someone crack open the bleeder screw then tighten it let up on the pedal pump up agian crack screw repeat on all 4 wheels. Note; never let up on the brake while screw is open. you will need to do this many times per wheel. just because you are getting brake fluid out does not meen you do not have air comming down the line. Before doing this fix your leak. It is a broken line or rear wheel cylender most likley. Brake fluid is bad stuff be sure to catch all that comes out and take to a shop to get rid of it. Do not get it on your paint. To be a little cleaner with this get some clear 1/4" hose to put on the bleeder screw and collect the brake fluid in a jar. 1/4" is about normal size but you could make any small vacuum line work.
Or, take it to a repair shop. Bring your wallet.

I'm confused, how did U bleed the rear brakes and there's no fluid to them? first of all U need to get fluid to the rear.

Get a short piece of hose and attach it to the bleed valve. Put the free end in a jar that has some fluid in it and put the free end of the hose into the fluid. Put the container lower than the item you are bleeding. Open the valve and work the pedal gently a few times, then wait...gravity will finish for you. Close valve and go to the next wheel.Get the bleeders free and clear them of debris before putting the hose on (hose should fit well, can't be loose or it won't work.) Monitor the master cylinder so it does not run low and leave the cap off while doing this. I use clear plastic hose so I can see the air as it comes out but you can use black hose and just watch the end for bubbles.

this sounds like a autozone master cylinder. all you can do is go get another one. the best way, and quickest way to tell if this one is going to work is to install the master onto the booster and bleed it there by filling it up, snugging the lines and having someone inside to push the pedal down, you open the line and watch the stream. as long as you dont see air like when you bleed at the wheels. if you cant get a lack of air, take that 1 back too. the only way to get one thats good right off the bat is to buy the ac delco part it calls for. the people who "rebuild" these other ones dont often measure the inside bore when they put it back together. ive gone through 5 one time. cheers.

check the master cylinder. It may need to be replaced.. When replacing, make sure to bench bleed it as not doing so would void the warranty.
