I have a 2004 3.7liberty. I keep getting a rich bank code and only one plug is

A Vacuum leak should make it run lean, not rich. If you look for loose or cracked vacuum hoses you might find a leak but I don't think that is your problem. I would suspect a leaking fuel injector in the cylinder with the fouled plug.

Ive changed out the injector and spark plugs.

Turned out it was a dropped valve seat. I did a compression test and that was how I figured it out. Just a heads up to anyone else with the same issue.
