  • 70,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler 300. While driving approximately 25 mph up a steep hill, the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle was parked for approximately 15 minutes while the engine cooled off and eventually restarted. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic. The technician diagnosed that fuel flooded the engine. The mechanic advised the contact that the fuel tank should never be filled to capacity. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred on several occasions. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 70,000.

Filled up gas tank and as I was pulling out off gas station car shut off. I turned the car off and on again and it started, drove apx fifty feet and car shut off again, luckily I had already pulled over to the side of the road. Towed the car to the shop, was told the gas needed to burn off a little. Worked but had three more incident since then. Apparent the fuel tank when filled up expand and fuel get into the engine. Can't afford to fix the problem, been lay off going on three years now.

After filling up with fuel the vehicle stalls about 3 or 4 times. I looked this issue up and there was a recall, but it was VIN specific. I refueled on 7 January 2015, and was turning onto a busy highway, the car stalled while I was turning, I placed it in neutral and restarted it. About 1/2 mile down the road it again stalled, I lost power steering, and once again had to put it in neutral. The automobile stalled one more time and then resumed normal operation. I am afraid that this will happen when I am accessing an interstate where the consequences will be much worse.

I have a 2006 Chrysler 300C, which is the motor trend car for that year. I really enjoy the spacious room and power of this car and was happy to get it back in the spring of 2005, directly from the factory. I had been enjoying my car until the car starting stalling. My vehicle stalled out after I filled the gas tank. It stalled several times while I attempted to leave the gas station. This has been an ongoing problem and I have been waiting for the gas tank to be replaced every since I heard about the recall last year. To date, the tank has not been replaced and I am concerned about driving it and stalling in traffic. This could result in serious accident if it stalls in traffic. I have taken the vehicle to a couple of dealerships in my area without any help for this issue.

Always after fueling car will stall. At idle, or starting to drive off, or at stop sign or light or going down street or freeway. Not always easy to get restarted either. After 1,2, miles or so wont do it anymore, until next fill time.

I filled up the gas tank and shortly after entering the highway and accelerating the engine stalled on me in the middle of traffic. It took several attempts to restart. Since then it has stalled on me every time I fill up the gas tank so I have only been filling it 3/4 full and I have no problem. I found out there was a recall for the problem (PE13-016) and called Chrysler but was told my VIN number was not covered even though it fit the exact criteria of the recall. Chrysler could not tell me why my vehicle was not covered.

After filling up the fuel tank, after approximately 30 seconds the engine shut down. It was hard to restart, but finally restarted. When pulling out fromt the fueling station, the car began to buck and jerk intermittently. When stopped at a red light, it stalled again. I restarted the car. When I proceeded when the light turned green, the car again stalled. This occured for the next 5-6 miles, then stopped occurring. This happened every time I refilled the fuel tank. Since ooa 15 December 2011, I cannot fill my fuel tank and have to stop it before the nozzle shuts if off. If I inadvertenly let it fill until the nozzle clicks off (doesn't matter the fueling pump/station), it will buck and stall for the next several miles until some of the fuel is burned off in the tank.

After filling car with fuel car starts bucking and stalls. Restarts and bucks and stalls a few more times then runs fine until next time we fill up. We cannot fill the fuel tank up or take a serious chance of having car stall in traffic. I have asked Chrysler if there was a recall or fix for this and was told by service manger that he was not aware. They suggested that I need fuel tank unit $1,158. I have read that many people are having same problems and only fix is to pay for a new gas tank as this is only fix. Chrysler should fix this for no charge as it is part of the emission system. I'm terrified to have my son in the car that we'll be hurt or killed by this flaw in the fuel tank. I hope we can get some help to get this repaired. Thanks.

Vehicle stalled in public roadway following filling gas tank. Struggled to get engine restarted. Kept dying. Managed to get rpms up but could not engage transmission. After some delay transmission engaged and was able to drive vehicle out of traveled way. I was blocking traffic. The engine would continue to repeat dying and I would have to pull over and perform restart sequence. This continued for several miles. At first, thought engine was experiencing vapor lock. Also had thought I had purchased a bad tank of gas and my fuel filter was plugged. I was out of town and took the car into local Chrysler dealer at that time. They told me it was my battery and charged me for a new one plus installation. When I returned home the next day some 250 miles away I found the car acted up again after I filled it up with gas. I contacted my local Chrysler dealer who indicated there could be a problem with the fuel delivery system and being my car was out of warranty all cost for investigating to determine the problem and the actual work to make the repair would be on me. They could not give me any idea as to the possible total cost. I opted not give them a blank check and did not have them dismantle the car. I found that I can avoid the stalling if I don't fill the tank full. A sad solution to a faulty fuel delivery system. I'm the original owner of the car and have religiously cared for it. I have never received any documentation from Chrysler regarding offering to correct the float (which now they have concluded is the problem). To set a deadline on January 2014 without notification of the owners is poor business. If that is their position than I will do my best to discourage anyone from buying their vehicles. They should have had a recall by notifying all the owners. I do get mailers from several Chrysler dealerships and they have all my records!! shame on you, Chrysler!!!

After I filled up my gas tank and left the gas station, when I came to a complete stop my car shut off. When I restarted it, my rpms raised tremendously and my gears started shifting automatically and when I came to another stop my car shut off again. I only been having the car 3 weeks and I noticed that it always happens after a fill-up for a few hours here and there. Once my gas needle moves a little bit below full, the car runs perfectly fine!

Multiple times the car has stalled, bucked and/or cut off on me after refueling. The symptoms were intermittent now they occur more frequent. This problems has caused the car to be unsafe to drive as the car can stall or cut power (acceleration) at random.

I purchased the used car on July 20,2013 from car center in waldorf, md. One week of driving the car I had to fill the gas tank up. Once I started to drive it the car began to stumble and shut off on me while I was driving. I immediately called car center and I was given a loaner car 08/01/13 and the car was supposedly taken to waldorf Ford and Dodge to have it looked at. I called the waldorf Ford and Dodge to discuss my car. They told me the only thing they did was cut a new key for the car, which I had them fax me the receipt of the work done. My car shut off another 2 times while I was driving, just after fueling. When I personally dropped the car off at waldorf Jeep and Chrysler dealership the technician told me that I'm not the first one to complain about my car shutting of while driving, just after filling up my gas tank. I asked him was there a recall on the car that was not done. He said they're investigating it. I asked him what do I do in the meantime, his [xxx] answer just don't fill it all the way up. On 04/16/14, my car stalled in the middle of a busy highway while I had the green light to cross it. We were almost side swiped by another vehicle because they're light turned green and I couldn't get the car started in time to get out of the way. I no longer feel that this is "safe" to drive but yet I'm still stuck with these payments! please help I love the car but want something that is safe to drive.
