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.

After refueling, vehicle stalled when accelerating from stop light. Was able to immediately restart. This happens approximately 50% after refueling and seems to be more common/pronounced when making turns at intersections soon after refueling. Seems to be less frequent if I remain stopped, with engine off, at the gas station (e.g. go inside for purchase). Very aggravating and concerned for safety if stall occurs in high traffic area.

When it first began the van would stall and skip upon acceleration between 20-50 mph. Now the van stalls and/or skips at any point of acceleration. The engine light comes on right after there is fuel added to the tank and this is when the stalling is the worse. The engine light also comes on when there IS1/4 tank of gas left and the distance to empty number jumps around when there is less than 1/4 of a tank.

This is a defect petition filed pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30162. Our 2007 Grand Caravan SXT has about 44,000 miles on it and it has begun stalling after refueling. This only happens when the fuel tank is refueled to full capacity. The problem started about a month ago. Today, my wife (with kids in car) stalled on the highway. The danger was that she was on a turn and the steering wheel became impossible for her to turn it. This is a major safety issue, and my hope is that Chrysler makes good on a defective part. (I see they did that after a gov't investigation of a similar nature for other cars...after an investigation by NHTSA!) ***this is a widespread issue for vehicles from 2004 to 2013. See thread below for reference;

Vehicle stalls immediately after filling gas tank completely. I let pump turn off automatically and do not overfill. Has happened repeatedly in traffic and is dangerous. After a few miles, no more stalling or sputtering. Lots of reports of this problem with Dodge/Chrysler vehicles online but company claims no knowledge of problem. Fix is to replace fuel tank and attached parts.

Everytime I fuel my dgc, after I start up, the engine will sputter and stall out, even out in traffic. I have put it in park, restart (it restarts rough), and then rev the engine a few times to work out sputters and roughness.

  • 39,350 miles
After filling up the fuel tank, the car dies while driving a few minutes later. Dealership said the fuel tank needed to be replaced and charged me $766.55. The called it a non serviceable check valve in the fuel tank which allows liquid fuel into evaporate line after reaching a certain level. Once the vehicle is started the PCM purges the evaporate system to burn the vapors and exposure the catalyst warm up system. At this time the liquid fuel in the evaporate line is sucked into the engine intake manifold and causes the engine to stall. This is a serious safety issue because the car could be on the road. When it stalls it could easily cause an accident. Chrysler should fix this before people are injured.
