    I think you have a leaking heater core and an oil leak. A residue on the inside of the windshield would be coolant mist, residue on the front side of the glass could be oil from a big oil leak. A Chrysler specialist could diagnose and estimate these problems for you.
    Here's a diagnostic link for you:
