2002 Dodge Stratus R/T Spark Plugs

I purchased a 2002 Dodge Stratus R/T and I don't know if the spark plugs were ever replaced. It would be helpful if you could tell me what brand/type of spark plugs were installed by the manufacturer when the car was new in 2002.

The spark plugs for that vehicle is Champions. Not anything fancy, just a resistor copper core plugs. DO NOT INSTALL DOUBLE OR SINGLE PLATINUM PLUGS. No bosch, no splitfire, nothing but the champion plug.

ANy other plug and you will start have random misfire codes and other "weird little problems".

I have been a shop owner for years and I tell you this because i have fixed weild little problems just by installing the correct plug. ]
You should change the plugs every 30K miles as well. Look in your owners manual and it should tell you your service schedule
Good luck

How to change spark plugs 2006 dodge stratus 2.7

It's pretty tricky but I think I just used a six inch extension on my flex head ratchet and you can get to them between the intake runners. Make sure to use a good socket that will hold the plug in it.

My 2002 dodge stratus is acting like it is missing out or spuddering. I have changed the spark plugs and after doing so it ran really well for awhile then started doing the same thing again?

You may have a bad coil pack. They are located on top of the spark plugs. If a coil pack is bad then if will miss as well as you could loose gas milage and performance.

Replace rear spark plugs on 2.7 liter 2006 dodge stratus

I have a 2001 Stratus with the 2.7L V6. From what I understand, the engine compartments are very similar. When I change the rear spark plugs, I have found that I need to use a spark plug socket on a 6" extension, with an elbow socket. There isn't enough space in the engine bay to get straight over the spark plugs, and I have yet to find an easier way than simply using a elbow socket.

When installing new spark plugs, it's always a good idea to use a small amount of anti-seize on the threads.

Where are the Spark Plugs located on the 2002 Dodge Stratus 2.7 liter?

Spark plugs are under where the thick plug wires are, or each plug has it's own coil on top of it. A coil is a thick brick like box.
If you need to ask , maybe you should be changing them yourself.

They should not bother anything as long as they match they the OEM spark plugs. Just make sure they look fairly the same as the ones you reme. I.E. length width so forth and so on.

2002 Dodge Stratus Spark plugs

the spark plugs are probably in the same place they've always been in...(sorry).
