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

SOURCE: replacing serpentine belt 2002 dodge stratus

Did this on my 2002 Stratus 2.4L. I agree with other poster, you do have to remove the passenger tire and wheel wall to do it, but the tensioner travels clockwise.
Note: I offer this solely as a description of how I accomplished the task on my vehicle. It should not be taken as me advising anyone else in any way on how or whether they manage to repair their own vehicles.

1) Engaged parking brake, loosened lugs on passenger front tire.
2) Jacked-up and placed jack-stand.
3) Removed piece of black under-carriage which surrounds the oil filter and attaches to front bumper. There are at least 10 plastic push-pins to remove and I managed to destroy half of them in the process.
4) Positoned belt over lower pulleys and tensioner (as best as possible) then used a bungee to hold the top end of belt up while I worked under the car.
5) Used a 3/8 ratchet and inserted into square hole attached to the tensioner, disengaged the tensioner (moves clockwise) then used a brace to keep the ratchet handle in that position.
6) From top, removed bungee and finished placing belt over alternator, checked the position of entire belt, reengaged the tensioner, and replaced wall and wheel.

SOURCE: crankshaft seal blows out oil leak

The fix is replacement of motor!! I have the same problem and have already paid $700 in repairs to fix seal just to find out that the seal is being knocked out by loose crank shaft..Car had 60000 miles when I bought it 4 months ago, from a dealership, and now it needs a motor replacement..I stiil owe $5000 on a car that is worth $0..Dodge did not give the 100000 mile warranty they love to advertise on TV for the '06 Stratus..They only gave 36000 warranty because they did not think it would last much longer..Will never buy Chrysler product again!! They do not stand behind what they sell or they would have 100000 mile warranty on all their cars..

SOURCE: location of thermostat on 2002 dodge stratus 2.7 eng.

The thermostat on this car is located on the passenger side lower Engine block. Follow the lower radiator hose and it will lead you right to it. The Wheel and splash guarding need to be removed as well as the Alternator to gain access to the housing bolts. It about a 3 hour job to replace thermostat.

I have a 2001 dodge stratus the front seal is leaking behind the torque converter on the transmission. I have replaced it three times but it's still leaking.


Something is causing damage to the seal. Make sure you put the seal in WET or it will burn upon initial start up. Also check the snout of the torque converter for damage. If there are any knicks or if it feels rough, you will need to polish them out or replace the converter.

Front main seal leaks real bad


Front seal is not bad to replace. With common tools and common sense you can get the job done in few hours. Maybe will require to have harmonic balancer puller, which you can easily rent from auto parts store. Good luck!

My 02 stratus has a fuel rail leak only when first


Their are O-rings on each end of the injectors, (if that is where it's leaking?) when they are cold they shrink up, if their is a small crack in the O-ring it will leak, as they warm up the rubber will expand, sealing it off.
I had this problem with an intrepid and had the rings replaced, I still had one injector that was leaking and had to replace that too, but the rings are relatively inexpensive, even paying a garage to do it.
Hope this helps you seal it up.
