Turned ignition, car starts right up, then stalls. After several attempts car becomes drive-able but stalls while driving, stopping and turning. At this point steering wheel locks and turning becomes difficult which is scary while in traffic. This problem occurs periodically, sometimes the car will drive okay and then starts stalling. Had this same problem in 2013, took to dealer and had to have gas tank replaced at a cost of $1300 dollars.

I first noticed surging at idle when in gear, this grew into stalling during stops and now is stalling/stumbling while driving. I've had multiple times where the car would completely stall while moving and had high potential for danger. I have no engine light and no engine codes. This car is an srt8 and driven very seldom, especially now. It's actually parked now due to this issue. The maintenance has always been meticulous and mechanics have come up dry with trying to figure this out.

I own a 2006 Chrysler 300C and recently when I fill it with gas and drive away from the gas station it shuts of and I have problems keeping it running. I'm afraid to drive the car now because it can stop on me in the middle of a busy intersection and that could be very dangerous, in fact... life threatening. I should not have to be afraid of driving my own car. That's ridiculous!

  • 90,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler 300. While driving approximately 55 mph on the highway, the vehicle stalled and shut off without warning. The contact pulled over to the side of the road, restarted the vehicle after a few minutes, and drove home. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and advised the contact to take the vehicle to an independent mechanic since there was no Chrysler dealer at that location. The mechanic was unable to diagnose the failure, but recommended that the fuel and fuel cap be replaced. The failure recurred several times, but the engine could be restarted each time. The manufacture did not offer any assistance and stated that the vehicle was not included in any recalls. The failure mileage was 90,000.

I drive a 2006 300C hemi w/60K miles.I bought this car from a friend. This car has been in this city since 2006. Mid day temps 105'. I was running errands in town. I had stopped at 7 different locations, turned the vehicle off and a few minutes later returned to the car and continued with my errands. I was in the car sitting at a 4 lane intersection waiting for my turn and I looked down at the dash and the oil can light came on, then traffic started to move and I couldn't, my car had stalled. I turned off the A/C unit, the radio and put it in park. I tried 6 or so times to get the car to start but it wouldn't.I engaged my flashers while other drivers were honking and driving around me.I left it in traffic and got to the sidewalk out of danger. I was calling for help when a motorist pulled up behind my car and asked whats wrong. I told him it just died, sitting still waiting for our turn to go thru the intersection. He got in the car that had been sitting there for about 5 minutes and it started right up and he drove it to a safe parking lot. I parked the car in my garage and there it sits. I am afraid to get stranded in traffic again. I did some research on the web and found that Chrysler announced on Feb 13, 2014 Chrysler extends lifetime warranty on 2006, 5.7 and 6.1 hemi fuel tanks. Apparently, no one has died yet so it does not quality for a recall but this is a known problem. I would like to know how I can qualify for this warranty?

Chrysler 300 ltd rwd 2006 stalls when car slows down. Have performed regular maintenance and had ignition switch replaced at dealership - car engine light comes on after it stalls, but when car is re-started, (which it does) engine light is no longer on - very dangerous to have no warning, just dies - car runs great when running, but quits suddenly when speed is reduced - do not want to own car anymore.

After filling tank with gas, the car stalls and dies in traffic and after stopping at light. Was told by dealership that they must verify that it happens. Well after having the car for 3 days, they say that they cannot duplicate the problem. So therefore will not perform the replacement. Very dangerous and frustrating!! so will wait until accident happens or recall ifs finally issued!!!! this has happened to me 4-5 times in 3 days.

I was leaving my neighborhood and I stopped at the stop sign. As I was leaving, I heard a jerk before turning. As im driving, I noticed that the gears weren't switching properly. I had to pull over and turn the car off and back on. Later that day, I pulled into a drive thru and my car wouldn't move. The engine did not turn off but it wasn't revving. I continued to press the throttle and it finally jerked and moved. Ive had many ocassions of my vehicle having no reaction from hitting the gas pedal to it not shifting gears.
