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.

Whenever you put gas in the tank and fill it up the car we're all turn off as you are driving go a little bit and then turn off again. It does this every time you put gas in the car or fill it up.

The engine shuts off while I'm driving and in reverse. I can restart it with no problem as long as I immediately step on the gas peddle. I have to shift into neutral to keep the engine running while at a stop light & back to drive. When I turn the key I do not hear the fuel pump like I used too! I've had repairs costing$509.96 and still have the same problem! I think my fuel pump is not working correctly or about to stop working! is there a recall for the fuel pump?

I purchased my vehicle used 2 weeks ago. Initially the vehicle was running fine until I filled it up with fuel. As soon as I pulled out of the gas station my vehicle started stalling as if I was losing power to my vehicle. After a few miles the stalling stopped. In the past few weeks the stalling has become worse every time I pump fuel. It shuts off if I'm idle at a light, it shuts off when I'm attempting to park, turn left, or in a drive thru. As soon as I would crank my vehicle up and go to accelerate the car won't move until after a few seconds and then it just jerks out before a smooth drive. Yesterday I took it to a Chrysler dealership because after informing the used car sales lot where I purchased the vehicle they couldn't find the issue and wanted to keep my car for a week. After 10 hours of trying to find the issue they stated there had been a recall on the fuel tank for 2006 Chrysler 300S. He said that should fix the problem and I should be on my way. So I was relieved to hear the great news coming from the Chrysler dealership. Well after heading home and 20 miles out from the dealership there goes the stalling again last night. My vehicle shut off at the light and again as soon as I attempted to park my vehicle in the driveway. In addition to the fuel system issue is causing another issue that I truly fee wasn't investigated thoroughly. I noticed a recall on 2006 Chrysler pacifica where the stalling was caused by the fuel system, tcm, and PCM module basically dealing with the power train and this is very highly the same issue going on with 2006 Chrysler 300. There should've been a recall on both and there isn't. this is very dangerous as when I stalled onto the freeway I was almost hit by an 18 wheeler truck on last week. The tcm and PCM codes along with the fuel system code were showing in the diagnostic issue yesterday. Help please

Stalls out while driving after I fill it up with gas. It has happened several times and twice while I was at an intersection on the take off...it has happened while riding down the road right after I filled it up with gas. I make sure the cap is tight and I do not overfill tank, when gas pumps stops, I do not add anymore. It happens only after fill up and after it shuts off, or jerks several times it seems to run ok. It is very scary and there is no warning when it happens.

Sending another log. Not sure my complaint went through. Since beginning of 2014 my 2006 Chrysler 300C hemi intermittently stalls after refueling. It occurs immediately after a refuel and usually when you are at a low speed to stop at a traffic light, stop sign, or it can occur by just traveling at a slow speed. This can occur 'anywhere' after a refuel. It has occurred numerous times after pulling on interstates after a stop at a convenient refuel. I'm always frantic due to the traffic on interstates. I do not feel safe with myself and passengers in my vehicle with this situation. Sometimes after a refuel it will stall 3 - 4 times. I was going to take my car to a dealership, but wanted to read on the internet if any issues as this were logged. I was amazed. Chrysler should pay for the fix, since it is over $1000 to fix the issue, plus it is a known issue of 'numerous' recorded loggings. It stated on the internet that letters went out for a lifetime warranty for this issue, but I did not receive a letter. Please let me know how to go forward with this issue.

I filled up my gas tank, drove approximately 2 miles and came to a stop sign. At the stop I experienced a erratic idle followed by my car shutting off. I stared it back up and for about 5 seconds it still and a very erratic idle. I was able to get out of the street but it could have been very dangerous.

Turned ignition, car starts right up, then stalls. After several attempts car becomes drive-able but stalls while driving, stopping and turning. At this point steering wheel locks and turning becomes difficult which is scary while in traffic. This problem occurs periodically, sometimes the car will drive okay and then starts stalling. Had this same problem in 2013, took to dealer and had to have gas tank replaced at a cost of $1300 dollars.

I first noticed surging at idle when in gear, this grew into stalling during stops and now is stalling/stumbling while driving. I've had multiple times where the car would completely stall while moving and had high potential for danger. I have no engine light and no engine codes. This car is an srt8 and driven very seldom, especially now. It's actually parked now due to this issue. The maintenance has always been meticulous and mechanics have come up dry with trying to figure this out.
