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.

After filling the fuel tank as I was leaving the station the car stalled and the check engine light came on. The car started and I drove about 3 blocks and it stalled again at a traffic light. It ran ok the next several fill-ups and then it happened and this time it stalled four (4) time. Once on a busy by-pass I spoke with Chrysler customer service on March 20, 2012and they will do nothing about this. Clearly this is a serious safety issue. I am having the fuel tank replaced at a cost of $1200.

After filling the fuel tank the engine will stall when stopping for a light or when first leaving the light. It will also jerk while driving.this happens until the fuel level goes down. It did not do this when first purchased. Now it happens every time the tank is filled. If the car stalls while driving the steering and brakes become difficult to use. There are many reports online about this same problem. Chrysler does not claim to know anything about this at the dealer. Someone will get hurt or worse if this problem is not addressed. Thank you

Car unexpectedly stalled in traffic but started right up again. This happened several times as I made my way to the Chrysler dealer a few miles away. They could not diagnose problem at the time. The car ran fine until yesterday January 31st 2013 when it happened again but this time in heavy traffic. I managed to get the car started and it continued to stall several times as I made my way to the dealer again. The mechanic identified the problem which appears to happen right after filling the gas tank as a problem with the vapor recovery system. He stated he has seen this problem many times and the remedy is to replace the fuel tank and vapor recovery lines and filter etc. Cost about $2000. I asked if it was a recall given that this happens frequently (my online research suggests this is a common problem with Chrysler 300C). I was told it was not a recall. My issue is that this is a serious safety problem and should be addressed by the manufacturer.

Five minutes after refueling my 2006 300C, it stalled at a stop light. Vehicle restarted quickly, but could not hold steady rpms at idle or higher. Drove immediately to dealer, and vehicle stalled three more times on the way. Dealer personnel indicated stalling could be caused by over-filling the gas tank (however, I had not continued filling the tank after the pump auto-shut-off). Dealer suggested running the engine for 15 minutes to clear vapor canister. This did not help. Dealer replaced fuel tank and vapor canister, $1500. This is a dangerous condition since the rough running leads to stalling at intersections or stop signs.

The car will hesitate and stall unexpectedly. It seems to occur only immediately after refueling. I have had the car die as I am crossing busy intersections. After driving a few miles, the problem seems to go away. Internet chatter seems to indicate a bad evap. Solenoid/canister or from a vent valve sensor inside the tank that is causing the problem and the tank would have to be replaced. A costly fix. This can be quite dangerous as the car will hesitate and stall even at highway speeds. It seems that this is a fairly common problem. I asked my local Chrysler dealer assistant manager if he had ever heard of this problem and he said no, and also checked for any existing Chrysler service bulletins on this subject and found none.

Every time I put gas in my Chrysler 300C and start the engine, the car tends to jerk forward and then the engine literally shuts down. This is a very serious problem, because the engine has shut down while I'm on the interstate; after filling up gas tank to capacity, my vehicle stalled after driving for not even one mile because fuel flooded the engine. The vehicle restarted after several attempts but my vehicle continued to stall after a distance. I took vehicle to an authorized dealer who stated that the fuel tank needed to be replaced.the fuel tank was replaced, but I am very concerned that this problem could have caused a crash resulting in a lot of damage and possible death!!

The engine will stall after every fill-up. It stalls within 15 seconds after starting it up at the gas station. It will then stall repeatedly at intersections and every time the car comes to a stop. In addition, it has stalled while making right hand turns and misfires and stumbles while at speed. The stalling/misfiring episodes do not occur once 2-3 gallons of gas have been consumed. This situation is extremely dangerous as I have been nearly rear ended as traffic started to pull away from a green light, and also stalled at intersections while making right turns. The Chrysler dealer said nothing was wrong since they didn't find any codes or tsb's regarding this problem. I have taken the car to an independent garage and they found a lot of chatter on their mechanic help websites. They think it might be the emission control that sits on top of the gas tank. The top gas in the tank is flooding over to the engine and stalling it out. Since Chrysler nor anyone else can say what definitively is going on I have cautiously not been filling the tank. This car is dangerous since the next owner may not be aware of this issue.
