Upon filling up the car with gas, the car stalled less than 500ft from the gas station. The car restarted and I drove 1/16th of a mile and as I was pulling out into traffic the car stalled again. The car has approximately 39300 miles on it.

When refueling our vehicle, using the correct grade of gas, not topping off the tank and allowing the fuel pump nozzle to shut off automatically when filled, we are experiencing life threatening episodes of stalling out when entering traffic from a gas station, or idling in traffic, turning corners, and entering ramps to the highway it will stall and choke when we try to start it back up. We wait approximately 3-5 minutes before attempting a restart without engaging the gas pedal. But still nothing happens. When it shuts off we forcibly have to turn the steering wheel because you lose power to your brakes, steering, etc. And just pray that nobody gets injured. During the stall out there are no warning lights shown on the dashboard. Once we finally get it to hold a start, we must at high idle drive fast as possible, getting off the main road/highway/city street to immediately garage the car. Then we have to have it run with the garage door open for at least 2.0 hours. And then we cautiously drive it with me following my husband to make sure it doesn't stall out again. Once we get pass this stalling-out period the car behaves properly, and we have no further issues until we refuel again on a weekly basis. We only have this refueling issue when filling the car. It indeed is a problem that the Chrysler group llc discussed in the letter we received May 8, 2014, in the 2nd paragraph "the affected vehicle population may experience a condition where the fuel shut-off float, in the multifunction control valve sticks, which may result in the vehicle stalling after refueling. This statement for us is definitely our problem. And we are planning to address it with the dealership asap. This has happened every week. The last time was October 30th 2015. We have now only filled it to the 3/4 mark and it has stopped stalling out temporarily.

My Chrysler 300C has been stalling everytime I drive it. Ive taken it to two Chrysler dealerships. One of them charged me more then $300 for nothing because they couldn't even find the problem but ended up charging me for the time. The second dealership changed my fuel tank that Chrysler gave a lifetime warranty on. It did not fix the problem. The car is still stalling at every stop I make. I think the problem isn't with the fuel tank because it did not fix the stalling issue. I think that its something to do with the wiring or computer. I also think that Chrysler should fix this issue asap. They said it was the gas tank but its clearly not. Why should I be paying thousands of dollars for a faulty problem that isnt my fault. I take care of my car and its only got 140,000km on it. Chrysler told me that it would cost thousands of dollars to find the problem. Please let me know what I should do. I think that Chrysler said it was the fuel tank because that would be a cheaper way to handle with this issue other then spending hours to find the problem. Chrysler should be fixing this problem not me. The car has died on me while making a left turn in the middle of a intersection. That is not safe and it has happened to me more then 20 times. I also feel like im damaging my car everytime I have to turn it back on. It also guzzles the gas more just by turning it back on everytime. Please get Chrysler to do something about this. If the car still has the stalling issue after getting the gas tank changed then atleast get Chrysler to find the problem at no cost to me.

Called Chrysler (1-800-Chrysler) about vehicle stalling after filling up gas tank after vehicle repeatedly stalled after filling up. I have a 2006 Chrysler 300C AWD w/ 5.7L hemi V8. Google search showed NHTSA action #PE13016 extending gas tank warranty of all 2006 hemi-engined 300's. Chrysler rep on the phone told me no such warranty existed after checking with supervisor. Had to call local dealership (gurnee Dodge) who was able to confirm that yes said warranty does exist and they would fix the issue. Incredibly disappointing that Chrysler lied to me. Car first stalled on train tracks near my house, and the gates on the crossing started to close just as I got the car to clear the crossing! scared the wits out of me!

2006 Chrysler 300C 5.7L hemi: Engline stalls if I fill the gas tank to maximum as I make R or L turn leaving gas station. Car will restart and stall again and again if/when I make a turn to the right or left until such time as level of gasoline in tank fails below the full mark. This is a problem on a long trip as it requies numerous extra stops for gas and stalling as I enter roadway or highway is dangerous for me and surrounding traffic/travelers.

What happen is that I just got the car used, had it 3 days cut the car off would not start back, I called the people who I got the car from, they came and got it, had it for three weeks, could not fix it so they send it to a dealership they had it a month and a half still didn't fix it right, they said it was fixed but was not, I picked the car up drove it home 30 minutes, got home forgot something at the store got in car would not say anything, lights and radio and still came on but car would not start, I could smell gas and they came and got the car again never mine that I had only had the car 3 days, ok they put new Cadillac converters on iti picked the car up, on my way home driving 20, car just cut off I thank god that no one hit me and it was 3 cars behind me I sat there for a minute and it started back but cut right off again, so I waited for a few more minutes, tried again, car started up and I went home cut car off, after 3 hours car was just dead would not do anything. Again call the shop, they came in picked the car up and that Aug, right now the car is in the shop, they cant seem to find out what's wrong with it, they put a lot of new parts on the car they said when they thank it is fixed they let the car run about a hour, but yet again it cuts off, something needs to be done about these cars cutting off while they are being drove, there are no recalls on these cars for that, there are many many complaints about the same thing, what is going on with Chrysler don't they know that a person can get kill driving and the car cuts off at any speed, I have my grand baby's everyday, I will never want anything to happen to them or me, all I can say is something needs to be done. Thank you

Hello, I am a current Chrysler vehicle owner and I've been having issues where my 2006 Chrysler 300C srt8 which just shuts off without any warnings or trouble codes reported to the car's computer. There are times when I'm driving on a busy highway and the car will just stall out. Each time I take my car to the auto mechanics, they aren't able to identify anything wrong as there aren't any codes detected. My vehicle even stalled while at the mechanics shop and they still weren't able to assist as no codes were triggered. Over the past 2 years, I've spent thousands of dollars and countless hours, stuck on major highs as well as replacing car components in a big effort of trying to resolve this concern. To date, I am still experiencing these anxieties. I've been out on relative web sites looking this problem up and it appears this has been happening to thousands of Chrysler srt/srt8 owners and they are dealing with same concerns that I am. I'm including a url link to one of the blog of 10+ pages of complaints from owners who are lost, confused and don't know what to do. www.chargerforums.com/forums/archive/index.php/T-47313.html one of the major reasons why I am asking for some assistance is both awareness to the general public, as there could be serious accidents as a result. Another reason is a proactive effort at hoping to get assistance to get feedback from Chrysler to help resolve these concerns.

The car chime will chime, the engine acts like it wants to stall, losing power for about 3 seconds, then it's fine. I received a sort of recall from Chrysler about the problem, I called the dealership in raynham, MA., the first week of Feb., 2015. I was told it would take about 2 weeks for the part. It has now been 9 weeks, and I'm told they are still waiting for 5 orders on this problem. I have had the car stall out, while driving in 35 mph traffic, very dangerous! it doesn't appear to me that Chrysler is taking the letter I received stating they came to agreement with NHTSA to seriously!!!

The 300 had a recall on the fuel tank, which was replaced January 2015 by tate in frederick md. Since then the stalling issue has gotten worse. I took the car to tate 4 times, and was told 4 different diagnostics. 1= transmission, 2= battery, 3=plugs & coils, 4=canister for extra fuel. I replaced the spark plugs & coils. Which didn't correct the issue. I took it to a 2nd dealer. Darcar's in rockville md and they are now telling me that its the transmission control module & power control module. My car no matter if there is a full tank or a 1/4 of tank stalls when I am at idle. It can stall once or the max is 9 times. I have a 1 1/2 year old & 5 year old which is a safety issue. I found this forum, which are other people having the same issue & different dealers are throwing different parts. I don't think the replacement of the fuel tank corrected this true issue. Can you please help me with discovering the true cause and making the cars safe for the drivers and passengers?

After topping off the gas tank the vehicle was driven two blocks where it was then pulled onto a busy access road in town. The vehicle was slowing down to a red light when the engine stalled for a moment, the oil pressure light came on, then immediately cut out and would not restart. After putting on hazard lights and attempting to call for a tow attempts were made to restart the car and after about 20 minutes of waiting the engine turned over and it was possible to pull the car off the road to a mechanic a block up. The car was scanned and no engine codes were found and oil pressure was found to be fine. The car was given a valve flush and started up fine after that. The incident repeated itself on 3/29/15 once more after filling up the tank, after going to blocks the car once more stalled and shut down. At this point I am very concerned for my safety with this vehicle if this is what is going to happen every time the car needs gas and this should be address with a recall after seeing so many complaints.

Very soon after purchasing the 2006 Chrysler 300C (used), it began shutting off while driving. Obviously this is incredibly dangerous. After "googling" is seems people all over with this vehicle have had similar problems, an some were attributing this to filing up the gas tank. We took due caution not to fill up the tank (how ridiculous is this?) and the problem has continued. An extended warranty was purchased from the Ford dealership we purchased at. After the run around about who actually "fixes" the car, it was taken to a Chrysler dealership who charged us $400 for a battery and then replaced some wiring harness which did nothing. We are back at it with the dealership. I see an article in the la times on the internet saying to take the vehicle back to the dealership. That's not helping. We haven't put 2,000 miles on this vehicle in almost a year now. It is unsafe to drive and has no value. Help. NHTSA obviously knows about this. www.latimes.com/business/autos/la-fi-hy-Chrysler-engine-stalls-20130514-story.html.

I noticed that my car will stall out after I have filled the tank up with gas. I use the recommend gas grade the book said to use. The problem has been happening since February. It will drive away from the pump or gas station without a problem but will stall in traffic or while at a light I had the fuel pump replace a month ago and it will stall out I don't know what else the problem can be but a car stalling out in traffic can cause a accident.

After fueling (filling) our 2006 300C the car was started successfully. After engaging the transmission and pulling away from the pump the engine suddenly stalled. After letting the car sit for a few minutes, the car successfully restarted and continued to run. This has happened a couple times a month since the first incident.

2006 Chrysler 300C-(aprox. 45000 miles) car started randomly shutting off when stopping or turning. Problem became more frequent to shutting off while driving, idling, and shifting backwards. Chrysler replaced the fuel tank but problem continues. Told by the Chrysler dealership we need to replace the fuel pumps as they aren't working properly but at our own expense. Independent mechanic said pumps seem to be working fine. Does not register a code on diagnostic test. Our car has 45,000 miles and this is a known problem...we should not be having engine stalling troubles!!

Car stalls/shuts off after refueling after driving a while stall stops until refueling again. Took car to dealer they found nothing wrong with car, they charged me for replacement of the battery. Car did the same thing after refueling. Took it again today 2/15/15 and was told my car wasnt covered for the lifetime recall for the fuel tank float replacement, although im having the same symptoms for this year vehicle that clearly alot of other customers have had the same problem.
