Question about 1999 Dodge Neon
Clear fluid leaking on that side suggests it is drainage from the air conditioner. None of the fluids in a car are normally clear.
UNLESS you have a serious antifreeze leak and you have topped it off with clear water.
The strange noise is most likely not related to the water leak unless you have used clear water in the cooling system.
It is too hard to diagnose that noise over the internet. It will need to be examined by someone who has good knowledge of cars.
Good luck with this. Those Neons are usually not too difficult to work on and and treated right, they can run for many years.

here is a diagram on how to replace the front pinion seal.
please do not forget to rate and comment about your experience with fixya.
Removing the companion flange
Measuring pinion rotating torque
Pinion seal installer
Tightening the pinion nut
CAUTION Do not exceed the minimum tightening torque when installing the companion flange at this point. Damage to the collapsible spacer or bearings may result.
CAUTION Never loosen pinion nut to decrease pinion bearing rotating torque and never exceed specified preload torque. If preload torque or rotating torque is exceeded a new collapsible spacer must be installed.
CAUTION If maximum tightening torque is reached prior to reaching the required rotating torque, the collapsible spacer may have been damaged. Replace the collapsible spacer.

SOURCE: leaking red fluid
The red fluid is transmission fluid, check the transmission fluid level, if it get's to low the transmission will burn out and your looking at a expensive job.
The fluid could be leaking from the transmission cooler line to the radiator in front of the car. Have it repaired and keep an eye on the fluid level to the transmission. Note: transmission fluid is flammable and may catch fire if slashed on to any hot area's like the exhaust.
Good luck and hope this helps.

The AC evaporator units have a drain hose that runs through the floor because condensed moisture is a fact of life with AC units. Yours is plugged. You will have to get under the vehicle and look for the hose where it comes out, then take like coat hanger wire and clean it out, It is somewhere in the vicinity of where the passenger foot well meets the fire wall. If you have to raise the vehicle to get under it, make certain you have it safely supported. If you don't have the stuff, drive the passenger side wheels up on a good curb and use some cardboard to slide under.
