After refueling my 2006 Chrysler 300C it would shut off at highway speed. The car would shut off at a stop light or stop sign this happens only when the car is refueled. This has caused many safety issues because of the oncoming traffic and the car stalling in the intersection.

I had just filled up the tank and pulled across the street and into a parking lot. As I was pulling into a parking spot the car died. I was able to get it restarted after about three attempts. After leaving the store I drove home and it died on me at the end on the parking lot as I was pulling into traffic. It died once more as I was driving through a residential area at approx. 25 mph. After I got it home, I allowed it to idle in the driveway for about 5 minutes with no problem. After eating dinner I took it for a drive and it happened again at an intersection. It died and took about five attempts to get it restarted. Updated 10/1/2014

300C 8-cyl

  • 130,000 miles
On April 9th at approximately 6:00 P.M. I filled my car with fuel until the pump shut off. After replacing the fuel lid I drove about 1/4 mile and stopped at a traffic light to make a left turn. Almost as soon as I stopped the engine started to run rough, as if it were running out of fuel and stopped. I placed the car in neutral, started the engine and drove another block before stopping at another traffic signal. Again, the engine sputtered and stopped. I got it started and reached park manor nursing home and shut the engine off while I went to visit. When I left the nursing home, I went down the driveway and about 1/8 mile to a 5 lane intersection that had a traffic signal. The engine sputtered and stopped again just as the light turned green. I had to quickly put the car in neutral to restart it then carefully let off the gas pedal enough to put the gear shift back in "D" and drive away. This was the first time I experienced any engine stops, but it seems to be pretty dangerous, since you cannot predict when it will happen and nothing seemed to trigger the faults. Each time the engine stopped, I noticed the oil pressure indicator was displayed and watched it rise to normal when the engine started again.

For several weeks every time I filled my gas tank the car stalled. I would start it and it would stall again. Several times I was almost rear ended getting on the freeway when my car dead stopped also at intersections. Every time I stopped the car at a light after fill up car would stop. I was afraid to drive the car as I feared I would be killed or severely injured. I took the car to the Chrysler dealer Jan 14, 2014. They replaced the fuel tank, evap canaster and vent valve at a cost of $1740.22. I asked if this condition was under warrenty they said no. I understand the warranty has been extended on the fuel tanks as per PE 13-016. I contacted Chrysler they said they did not know anything about an extended warrenty. Chrysler is not honoring their obligation to repair this very dangerous condition. I want to be sure my VIN# is included in this warrenty as I will seek reimbursement for this repair.

The current issue with this model for me is the fuel. I just had a vapor canister installed that did not solve the issue but it did get rid of a few of the problems. When I first started having problems with my car shutting down after a fill up, I thought the gas had water in it but it's not the gas. No matter what station I fill up at, I have the same symptoms. The car will drive fine for about 3 car lengths, then it will hesitate, choke, jump, try to die, jerk forward and then finally stall and shut itself off. Then it will take 3 or more tries to get the car to restart and it may do the same things over again for another block or two. The bottom line is, in the first 3 blocks of driving this car after a fill up, I can expect just about anything and I know for sure it will die on me if I fill it up. If I only put in 3/4 of a tank of gas or less, I am safe but if I let the pump kick off on its own, I'm in trouble. The only thing the vapor canister did was stop it from jumping and jerking, all the other symptoms are still there.

After filling the car a Chrysler 300C stalls. This is now an ongoing problem as the car now stalls after fueling. The stall occurs mostly when stopped at a red-light or driving at a low rate of speed. It has now progressed to include when accelerating onto a interstate.the stall causes all safety systems to fail ie. Breaks, steering, et. I have called the local dealership and the Chrysler hotline 800-992-1997 and was informed that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Chrysler will extend fuel-tank warranties does not apply to 2006 Chrysler 300C models. I was told the malfunctioning shut-off float and gas tank neck splash issue is not covered.

Vehicle stalls after fill up at gas stations. Has happened at least 10 times in last 2 years. Called Chrysler in reference to NHTSA action number PE13016. Despite their claim in the NHTSA action that owner letters mailing began in January 2014, I was told that as of April 2, 2014, the life time warranty has not yet been made official and no letters have yet been sent. As of April 2, 2014, Chrysler is not honoring the claim they made to cause the NHTSA to close this case. Follow up by NHTSA is needed here.

After filling the vehicle with gas, the vehicle stalls while idling. While driving down the road the car jerks severely and then turns off while driving down the road. There was an investigation that was closed on February 10, 2014, and Chrysler is suppose to be offering lifetime extended warranty related to this issues. However, I have not been successful in having Chrysler assist me in making sure my vehicle is safe to drive down the road. The vehicle stalling occurred twice while driving until I started to research it.

I previously made complaint that after fueling at gas station my car would flood and stall in the middle of traffic almost causing me to be rear ended by vehicles behind me. I was told by [xxx] that Chrysler would be fixing the problem in March 2014. Today 4-1-2014 I called Chrysler who stated even though I have a 2006 300C my VIN is not covered and they denied that any owner letters were sent and that I cant go by what NHTSA has to say. My car is still dangerous to operate when filled and I haven't filled it for years pending this resolution which they now refuse to do. Therefore I am opening another complaint as nothing that was stated to me has come true and Chrysler denies everything on your site and refuses to fix my car which is clearly a 2006 300C 5.7. information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

When filling the gas rank (no topping off) the motor would stall out, had car towed to service garage only to find the car would start. This has happened 2 times, after that it would occur at every fill, it has now gotten to the point where the car stalls out between 2 and 10 times, we don't dare go on the highway for at least 1/2 hour for fear of stalling in traffic! web search indicates this is a very common defect with this model, was told repair would require replacing the gas tank and fuel canister because fill pipe is too high on factory original tank? sounds like a defective factory part that needs dealing with for safety concerns, thank you much for your attention!

After refueling (not over-filling) the vehicle stalls, bucks while in motion, dealerships could not diagnose the reason. This happens every time the tank is filled to the point the gas pump kicks off. The dealer suggests the solution is to not fill the tank, which is a tactic that does work if you can predict how fuel you can pump before the shut-off. This is a safety issue because the stalling is not immediate and will often occur without warning once you have entered moving traffic. On line forums show this to be a wide spread problem with 300C owners. Apparently, many dealers are now suggesting the fuel tank be replaced as a solution. It is unknown if this actually solves the problem. On several occasions where this occurred I have narrowly avoided being rear ended by following traffic. I cannot imagine that no accidents have not been caused by this problem..

My Chrysler 300C hemi started idling rough and showing code P0300. Oil/plugs were changed, and my car worked well for ~500 miles. After which the low oil level light chimmed. After taking to the dealer the oil pressure switch was replaced and all was right. Close to a month later, while stopped at a rail crossing the car stalled with error code P1520. I checked the oil which was low and added to the correct level. In the oil, there was no discoloration or anything to cause alarm. I started the engine up and while the P1520 was gone I had the P0300. After removing the manifold small aluminum pieces where found inside. Plugs that were close to 4K miles old were ash covered and throttle body. Valves and cylinder #3 head need to be replaced.

I have had a problem with this car suddenly stalling after I fill it up with gas since I bought it. In 2006 Chrysler thought it was the computer and replaced it under warranty. That did not work. I returned it many times. The only remedy was to never fill up the gas tank completely. I recently noticed the NHTSA announced the 19 gallon gas tank for the 2006 Chrysler 300 would now have a life time warranty. I contacted the local dealership. They said my VIN # was not included. Since my car is a 2006 Chrysler 300 with a 19 gallon gas tank and I have had this problem for 8 years I am surprised my car would be one of those not covered. I would appreciate someone looking into this for me.

Re: extending warranty on 19-gallon fuel tank to life-time coverage for 2006 Chrysler 300C vehicles equipped with 5.7L 8-cylinder hemi engines that may stall after refueling.(see PE13-016). Allpar.com reported today that Chrysler spokesman [xxx] confirmed that the lifetime warranties for the affected vehicles "will be in place in mid-April". looks like Chrysler is finally honoring its agreement reported by NHTSA (PE13-016) in February 2014.
