Synthetic oil seepage is normally a problem with older vehicles. Newer seals will handle synthetics. However, if you have a bad seal, a PAO synthetic will find the leak. My 87 Volvo and the 1978 Ford 302ís in my yacht have some seepage. It is not sufficient to cause a drip. A little seepage that can be wiped off with a cloth, is a small price to pay for engines that are as good as new.
At this time I am not familiar with a major brand synthetic transmission fluid approved by Chrysler. There may be minor brands that I am not aware of. I suggest staying with major brands. Chrysler may even have their own brand made for them. There is a plethora of additives, but, I only suggest the use of additives to fix a specific problem.
