Check your gaps in your plugs and check firing order then you might wanna check that the engine is in time.

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Stratus R/T Spark Plugs

Tom,
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

Change spark plugs fuel filter fuel pump engine can not start


Wow! You've really got your hands full! 1) Verify the fuel pump is installed correctly and has power. 2) Verify the fuel filter is installed correctly. 3) Verify the spark plug wires are correctly installed. The number one reason for a car not running after an owner changes the spark plug wires - the wires were not installed to the correct cylinder.

My 2002 dodge stratus ran hot lost pressure of a hose and want crank after repair


Well you need a few things for an engine to run. Spark , Fuel, and Air..to start. Assuming that the plugs are the correct ones, and all the wires are connected properly & that the distributor cap was installed properly (AND SET IN TIME correctly). I would have to lean towards maybe a warped head. But there a quite a few variables that need to be eliminated before you can really begin to start down the road with a diagnosis. Good Luck

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.

I changed the oil and air filter on my 2002 Dodge Stratus. Also replaced spark plugs but it still idles rough while in gear.


sparkplug wires are a very common cause of misfires creating rough idling. as they age they tend to leak, meaning the soark jumps out of the casing to a point one the engine its not supposed to. Start there and if u have a check engine light see whats thats on for, its free at most autozones.

My 2002 Dodge Stratus ES idles rough while in gear. My check engine light is not on.


First I would try some fuel injector cleaner, if that does not help, then I would check and change plugs and wires. It also may be time for oil change, and air filter.

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.

Did you properly gap the plugs when you changed them? Improper spark will cause really rough idling at low RPM like that.
