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.

Sudden engine stall few miles after fuel charge. These problems happened several months ago, and becoming more frequent almost every fuel charge. When engine stalled, it's difficult to restart. One incident was the sudden engine stall during driving causes me to panic due to losing power assist of steering and brakes, and almost hit side walk at my neighborhood. Asked dealership to see what was wrong, and they made some repairs to the fuel injection, and egr valve. But the problem was not fixed. It's very dangerous.

Vehicle stalling after fuel fill-up. The temporary fix of not "topping off" the tank worked for a few months. The problem is happening more frequently however, regardless of the fuel level. Car shutting off/losing power randomly is a severe safety hazard.

I filled the gas tank up, got in car and when I was merging on freeway car jerked several times and died. I was almost hit by multiple cars. Got car into neutral was able to restart but it died several more times. Now every time I fill it up the car dies in traffic at speed. I am afraid to drive it. The dealer says it is a faulty fuel tank but will not warranty the repair. I have done research and have found several forums with many people having this same issue with the Dodge Magnum and Chrysler 300. This is a safety issue and could get somebody killed if it hasn't already.

I had stopped in the waco, tx area to fill up with gas on my way to italy, tx. I filled my vehicle up with gas, started it, and was entering in some gps coordinates when the car shuddered and died. This was the first time it happened. Since then it has probably happened 18-24 times, always immediately following a fill up at the gas station. Sometimes it dies in traffic, other times the engine will surge as if I had touched the accelerator pedal while sitting at a red light.

Immediately after filling gas tank with new fuel the following has happened several times: The car will start at the gas station but shortly after leaving the gas station (within a block or when getting back onto the highway from a rest stop) the car will stall. The stall can happen at a traffic light or even on the way to reaching highway speeds. At this time my solution to the problem has been to rev the engine in neutral for a bit after getting the gas tank filled with fresh gasoline.

Magnum 8-cyl

  • 60,000 miles
After refueling and filling up the tank, the car will shutdown under braking, cornering or at a stop. This happened so frequently I no longer fill the tank and stop at 3/4. there are several instances reported both here and in Canada on the car forums. The fix has been either replacing the tank and/or the evap valve and pump.

The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Magnum. The contact was driving 25 mph when the vehicle stalled without warning. The failure recurred three times. The contact was able to restart the vehicle and drive to the dealer for diagnosis, where it was advised that the fuel tank needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was not notified. The approximate failure mileage was 26,000.

Failed fuel tank control valve has caused the gas to contaminate the vapor canister and purge valve. After every fill up when I pull out into traffic the car will die out in front of on coming cars.
