Dodge transmissions require a very SPECIFIC fliud. It is called:
ATF+4. If you did noty ust this fluid, it will cause harsh shifts and downshifts. If you did use the right tranny fluid, then you will need to do what is called a "Transmission Quick Relearn". If you do not own a scan tool, any auto repair shop with a decent scan tool can do this, or you'll have to take it to the dealer. This procedure should take 15 minutes or less.

2001 dodge stratus 2.4 dohc will the coil pack spark if the valves are bent on the number 2 and 3 cylinders

If the engine cranks, and the cam and crank are close to being in time, the coils should fire.
You just would not have compression on some cylinders.
