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.

Stratus SXT 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,000 miles


Noticed that fuel gauge didn't start moving off full for about 100 to 125 miles. Then wife was 1 mi. away from home with a quarter tank on the gauge and ran out of gas... 16 gallon tank, added 2.5 from a can and 13.5 from the gas station. CEL came on with a p0300 code, "multiple cylinder misfires". Filled it up and so far no problem. Not sure if it's an easy fix or not?

I went and put gas in this car yesterday. It was right above 1/2 tank. That was ok. I went to work, after work I started the car and I had a full tank. Now mind you I did about and 1 worth of driving after noticing the problem and the gas gauge still has not moved. What the hell is wrong with this car?
