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.

Multiple times (3 times to date), immediately after filling up the fuel tank, the engine has stalled shortly after starting the engine and pulling away from the pump. We didn't get onto the roadway before the engine stalled. After shifting to park and restarting, the engine ran normally. This stalling after refueling issue has been reported by numerous other Town & Country owners.

Vehicle will stall and usually completely cuts off after gas tank has been filled. This happens almost every time. After this happens it is hard to re-start and has caused the vehicle to be stranded in the road.

After I fill up my van then starting after about 30 seconds to a minute the engine would run rough and if you did not give it the gas it would stop. I mentioned this to my dealer but they did not know or hear of this problem. In the November 2014 issue of consumer reports I noticed in the "road report" section about fuel tank problems with 2007-2008 Chrysler vehicles. I checked the web and in the "allpar.com news" that covers all Chrysler vehicles it had a article about 2006-2007 vehicles "stalling on a full fuel tank". I have had this problem since I purchased the vehicle in March of 2011 with approximately 32000 miles. My dealer said since there was no recall on this that they could not do anything about this unless I paid to have it fixed. In the allpar article it stated that it is the problem with the "stant-built floats in the fuel tank". I am use to this happening so I am ready for it. I keep my foot on the gas in neutral if I am stopped to ensure the engine does not die. If I am driving just need to be aware and keep on the gas and it passes in about 10 seconds. Please help. Thanks

After filling up the gas tank, and driving about two blocks, the engine stalled during deceleration for a stop sign. The vehicle was able to be restarted after several tries and being allowed it sit for a moment. The engine started to die again at a stop sign a few blocks later, but the driver was able to prevent that by giving it gas and avoiding coming to a complete stop. Between then and the next time the vehicle was filled up with gas, there were no further problems. This problem has re-occurred periodically over approximately the last year, often enough that it's come to be expected after getting gas. It always happens after the gas tank is filled, between two and six blocks from the gas station, and while decelerating.

After refueling the van, the engine stalls and we loose power steering and brakes. It usually happens with in a mile of the gas station. It sputters at other times and looses power. We have changed the fuel pump but that has not resolved the issue. After doing some on line investigation it seems to have been going on with many other customers for an extended period of time.

If I fill the gas tank until the automatic shut off stops the flow of gasoline, after leaving the gas station, the first stop I make the car will want to stall. I have to put the car in neutral and keep it revved or feather the gas pedal in drive. On some occasions if it does not stall and I am on the highway it will feel like it wants to stall and I have to be careful and feather the gas pedal. As long as I don't fill the tank to the point off the pump automatically shutting off I have no problem. I feel this is a dangerous problem that needs rectified. I have owned 3 Dodge Caravan and another Chrysler Town and country and never had the problem, all were prior 2007 models.

The van has stalled a handful of times while mid-turn after being fueled up! this has happened to me and my wife. I just read an article about this happening in our local paper and was shocked that others have had the problem as well. Here is the article: www.detroitnews.com/article/20140909/auto0101/309090093/1361/complaint-leads-to-probe-of-Chrysler-minivan-stalling-issue please keep me posted on this issue! this is a very dangerous problem. When the car stalls, everything goes out....no power steering at slow speed around a turn is bad! thank you!

After fueling, the 2007 T & C van with 3.3 L V-6 starts to stall, sputter and surge. This has become progressively more frequent with each tank fill. After 30 seconds from the onset, the engine normally returns to normal idle and runs smoothly. The last incident occurred last evening (3/9/13) and the engine surged by up to 800 rpms just after the van was put into gear and we were pulling away from the gas pump and we had a bit of control loss with pedestrians in the way. No one hurt thankfully.
