I have a dodge stratus 2000 with 2.4 liter dohc motor, ran fine then stalled once started right no spark will not start

Try using one of the old plugs and connect it to #1 and a good ground then try starting to visually confirm if spark is/is not present. Its much easier to see the spark in the dark. If you get a spark the problem is not electrical and could be a bad ground between the plug and the block, rarely happens, but not unheard of.

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.

Spark plug problem

You need a spark plug socket, a standard deep socket is usually not deep enough.

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.

On a 1997 Dodge Stratus, 106,000 miles, just replaced timing belt and head gasket. Car idles rough but seems to run fine when driving down road.

You've replaced the timing belt as a prevention maintenance or it has failed? In case of failure was made also a valve job? Why changing the head gasket? Are the spark plugs and cables new? the answer will bw within these questions...

On My 2005 Dodge Stratus 2.7 Liter, Automatic, 6-cylinder, Front wheel drive. HOW do I REMOVE the Air Plenum that sits ON TOP of the engine block so I can get my hands in the back to CHANGE the REAR Spark...

The flat rate to change the plugs is just 1.3 hours so the plenum shouldn't have to come off. I believe these are coil on plug, it's a tight fit but the plugs should come out, remove the coils from each sparkplug. Using a sparkplug socket and a couple shorter extentions, you have to work the extensions on one by one. Once the plug is removed you may need a magnet to fish them out. Replacing them is the same you have to work each section of extension in to get the plugs down into place. Hope this helps
