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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler 300C. The contact stated that she was unable to fill the fuel tank to the full level. After fueling the vehicle, it would stall. Sometimes the engine would restart immediately and other times it would take over five minutes. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer four times but the failure could not be duplicated. The contact called the manufacturer who advised her to call NHTSA. The failure mileage was approximately 51,000. Updated 1/19/2010 the dealer replaced the charcoal canister and fuel cap.

problem #1

Jun 262009

300C

  • miles
2006 Chrysler 300C engine: 5.7 liter spmi engine shutting down anywhere from 0-40mph. It could occur with the air conditioning on, happening when turning left or right, which would bring the miles per hour below 40mpr. So actually whatever you would do to bring the speed limit below 40mph is of no real importance. The rest of the things would not be worth mentioning because anything you did to bring the miles per hour below 40 is all that is important (it even would stop at a stop sign). If it was safe to accelerate you could stop the shut down. It never stopped or tried to stop at high speeds. Common denominator on engine shutdown appeared to be a full tank of gas or relatively full tank of gas. Problem started prior to October 2008 before taking to dealer to diagnose (final repair done June 27, 2009). Multiple diagnostics later the problem appears fixed; using a ┐black box┐ for the car the dealer finally replaced (after replacing multiple parts of the engine and computer components): (from dealer invoice) replace retainer, gas tank, canister, selenoid-proportional, O ring-fuel pump and leve, retainer, pin. Description of problem on last invoice: Took multiple recordings of multiple sensors, powers, grounds, evap system, etc. Read recordings found most common evap purge when engine dies. Removed evap canister to check for fuel liquid, none. Reinstalled canister, plugged off purge system. Had driven for several miles to see if vehicle stumbles, drove with no problems. Replaced gas tank and transferred needed parts. Flow control valve not sealing, replaced canister, saturated with fuel. Replaced purge solenoid, also saturated. Recheck ok.
