You can check under the seat of the Stratus for an access point. But unfortunately I don't think there is door. You are going to be pulling out the tank.

First, I'd recommend you buy a manual, because the water pump is internally mounted, driven by the timing belt. You will also need a puller to remove the crankshaft pulley. You can usually rent/borrow this from the same place you bought the manual. The manual will also show you how to properly install the timing belt and compress the tensioner.
You will need to drain the cooling system, raise the car (safely), remove the right tire, right inner fender, right engine mount (aka front mount), accessory drive belts, timing belt cover, timing belt and tensioner (which needs to be recompressed correctly), and now you are at the water pump. Since the timing belt has to be removed, you should also replace it.

This sounds like a vcuum leak in one of the hoses and you can check this by getting a can of carburetor cleaner and spraying short squirts around the enging area. It the idle jumps up when spraying the try to locate why and where your sprayed. See if you can here a hissing like sucking air. Next step and you might as well check it any how is the aiir filter. Take it out and hold it to the sun or some bright light and see if the light is trying to filter through. If not and it is dark then knock it gently on something and try to get most of the dust and dirt off it. This may give it a quick fix but will need to be replaced pronto. If neither of these tips help then let me know and I will come up with some more test for you. Good Luck, Raz
