Well i dont think changing the fuel filter will fix whats wrong but the filter should be under the car under the door hooked to the gas line

Okay I have a 2002 Dodge stratus and recently the car just died out. So after gettin a tune up another problem occured where I had to replace the starter. Now with new spark plugs and a new starter the car...

I don't think the key has anything to do with it. Spray a little staring fluid in the throttle body while someone tries to start it. if it fires off, spray a small amount in it to keep it running. if it stops you know you have an issue with a fuel filter / pump or fuel regulator. Main thing is to be sure the gas is getting up to the engine.

2002 Stratus check engine light came on. Code said it has something to do with possibly the gas cap so I replaced it and had the light reset. It came back on. Also, I notice the fuel system does not seem...

I have a 2002 Dodge Ram and i have the same problem with my check engine light coming on because of the Fuel Cap. Most likely it is the sensor itself that needs to be replaced because i have done the same thing as you and replaced the cap.. Sometimes it shuts itself off after i fuel up but a couple days later it will come on again.

Fuel filter location

Dodge Stratus fuel filter location, 2001-2002, access top of the gas tank from under the rear seat. Remove the sending unit with filter attached, replace in reverse order of removal. I found having plenty of lighting in there made a difference. Be careful of the gasket and seals and they can be re-used, dont bend the sensor parts or your gas gauge will will be FUBAR. Use proper tools for removing the retaining ring, don't get stupid and start making sparks with a hammer & a screw driver.
