Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

When I filled up my 2005 Chrysler with gas on Jan. 9th with the tank just 1/2 full at the time, I didn't even make it out of the gas station and it killed on me. Then I restarted it and within 2 blocks it killed again losing all power to the car. I have filled up twice since then, with the gas tank being at 1/4-1/2 full each time. It has stalled out each time, twice within 2 blocks of each other. Right before it kills, it chugs and lurches and then just quits running. The last time was yesterday, Jan. 18th. This time I was almost hit from behind as I pulled to the side of the road and put on my hazard lights.

problem #5

  • 60,000 miles
Chrysler 300C 2005. After a fuel tank fillup starting from less than 1/2 tank, for the 1st 10 minutes of run time, the car stalls repeatedly with loss of power, braking, and steering. After a small amount of driving the problem stops and normal driving continues. When the engine stalls, there is a complete loss of power and steering. While no accident occurred, it could have easily caused one. I searched on line and found that this could be caused by a recirc valve. This has been replaced and the problem has not been resolved. Every fill up from lot level results in stalling for several minutes of driving time.

Automobile stalls every time after fill-up. This is a known problem that is being ignored by manufacturer. Many references to this problem on reputable message boards. No accident yet, but repeated stalling with difficulty starting after stall is very dangerous. Only happens after fuel tank is filled.
