Town & Country Limited

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


I was driving down the road and the engine shut itself off. Luckily, I was not on a busy highway and I was able to coast to a stop along the road. I took it to the mechanic and they were able to determine that my van has a faulty roll over valve and this was allowing gasoline to leak into the engine. I had filled the tank up with gas prior to this happening and the mechanic believes the gas in the fuel tank pushed on the valve which allowed the gas to leak into the engine.

I have no choice but to have the faulty valve replaced. The cost to repair is quite high because according to the mechanic, the fuel system is all one piece and therefore the fuel tank needs to replaced because the faulty valve is located in the fuel tank. The tank alone is $700.

After checking out other complaints on this web site, it appears this is a common issue with the Town & Country vans. How many of these complaints have to be filed before Chrysler will realize there is an issue with their vans and send out a safety recall?

I have been having this problem for a while, so far the engine just turns off while driving. I don't know what the problem is because it suddenly happens, at stop sign, parking lot or just normal drive. Also the ignition switch won't go to accessories no more and it's hard to go in on position. I am very worried about this because I drive on freeway too and I think I got lucky so far. It doesn't happen all the time just like 2 times this week. Please, if you know something let me know, thanks.

THis has happened to me driving with the family yesterday on a long hilly road, the car just shut off. I got worried since I had no where to pull over, made me be in a dangerous situations with children in the car. This happened to my wife 2 times as well with children in the car. I spent a lot of money changing sensors, belts, tune ups, ignition and this is still occurring.
