Starter bolt "pattern"? I'm afraid I am not sure exactly what you are asking for. If you need specific instructions on how to remove and install a starter, it would be very helpful if you would let me know what engine we are talking about....A 2001 Dodge Caravan can be equipped with a 2.4L, a 3.3L, or a 3.8L engine.
Usually a starter is two bolts, you just have to unbolt them, get the starter out, and put it back. It takes ~3 hours, first time, mostly because you've got to line it up, it's heavy, and get it just right to put the bolts back in.
If the 95 is anything like the 90, the bolts are right on the flange type part of the starter, where the starter meets the transmisison. there is 3 bolts holding it in. they are most likely 13mm, 14mm, or 15mm bolts. but on some caravan models you have to remove the front transmission mount to get to it. this is probabally why you cant find em'. but you will have to remove the mount, then the starter bolts. then you have your starter out! but when you want to put the mount back in, you may need a floor jack to lift the engine/trans um into the right spot to put the bolt back through the rubber part. Tricky, but possible.
The started is located on the back side of engine (firewall side) next to the transmission bellhousing. To remove starter first disconnect the negative battery wire from battery.Raise the front of van up and use jackstands to support the van,block the rear tires. From under the van remove the solenoid wire from starter. Remove bolts from starter and remove starter from van. Installation is the reverse the removal. Hope this will help.

Starter - Removal & Installation
Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
Remove or disconnect the following:
Negative battery cable
Starter harness connectors
To install: Install or connect the following: Starter motor. Torque the bolts to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
Starter harness connectors. Torque the battery cable nut to 100
inch lbs. (11 Nm).
Negative battery cable
with most front wheel drives you must remove the passenger tire and reach through to the starter bolt with an extension and if I remember write with a 15 mm socket you can reach through and take out the bolt
DISCONNECT THE BATTERY, JACK UP AND SUPPORT YOUR CARAVAN. LYING ON YOUR BACK LOCATE THE STARTER WHICH IS ATTACHED TO THE ENGINE THROUGH THE BELL HOUSING .THERE ARE TWO 15 MILIMETER BOLTS THAT HOLDS THE STARTER ON . AFTER BREAKING THE BOLTS A 15MM WRENCH WOULD BE USEFUL.
