Magnum 8-cyl

  • 86,425 miles


Had filled up gas tank, upon pulling out experienced engine hesitation and lack of power. A few minutes later while passing though a major intersection with 3 children in car, vehicle stalled, causing loss of power steering and of course any means of propulsion. The vehicle started again but stalled three more times before returning home. This is an extremely hazardous situation which can endanger lives in a high speed and high traffic situation.

Magnum 8-cyl

  • 96,326 miles
After fueling car to near the full mark I was attempting to enter the traffic flow on interstate 75 at ocala. The car lost power and the engine died ( no power brakes or steering) attempted to restart car in neutral while attempting to maintain control of car. Traffic was running 70mph and I was merging into the traffic flow. The car would not restart acting as if flooded. Luckily I was driving and not my wife who has muscular dystrophy as she would not have been able to control the car. My research indicates the problem is known by Dodge and is related to a purge vent valve in the fuel tank. It seems the velvet sticks open and allows gas, not just the fumes to be recirculated to the throttle body (intake) and floods the engine. Dodge states this problem can affect all Dodge charger, Magnum and 300 model cars. It requires a fuel tank replacement as the purge valve is incorporated into the tank itself.

Second incident: November 27, 2014 driving to van nuys, ca from simi valley, ca at approx. 5:30 pm, filled up gas tank and proceeded down street towards freeway onramp, car stalled 3 times before getting on freeway. This is the second incident (happened two weeks prior, also following fuel fill-up). First incident (two weeks prior to second incident): Filled up tank in porter ranch, ca, headed to van nuys, ca... drove on freeway ok, exited freeway at roscoe blvd and turned left. Car stalled in the middle of left hand turn. Extremely dangerous and life threatening if car stalls in the middle of a left hand turn as oncoming traffic approaches.

2nd submission - I did not get a confirmation of my first one and I have more information. My 2006 Dodge Magnum with the 5.7L hemi has had and continues to have the issues outlined in NHTSA investigation PE 13016. It stalls out after fueling. It has now starting doing it when the weather gets much warmer during the day. I have contacted Chrysler via E-mail and was told my vehicle was not covered by the extension of the warranty on the gas tank and associated parts. I have contacted billion here in sioux falls and also papik in luverne mn and neither service department has heard of this issue, the investigation, or the fix. At thing point I may just have my local shop that I use fix it as it has become very nerve racking to drive. I should not have to pay out of pocket for something the company has committed to fix. I did download a copy of the letter from the NHTSA website that was linked to the investigation page. I never received a copy of this letter from Chrysler which is probably because I am the second owner of this car. I would appreciate any help you can provide.

Just after filling my gas tank on this vehicle, I experienced stalling 3 times, including in an intersection. Had the vehicle towed to the dealer. After inspection, they reported that it was the rollover valve in the fuel tank. I alerted them to the Chrysler extended warranty, they reported that my VIN is not covered as part of this warranty. I feel this is unacceptable on the part of Chrysler as it is the exact problem that is described in the warranty. This needs to be extended to all vehicles as it is a huge safety issue as stalling in an intersection is highly dangerous.

Magnum 8-cyl

  • 69,000 miles
Just filled the tank and was leaving the gas station and the car stalled at the stop sign. Car continued to stall for several minutes and was hard to start each time, seems to stall at both low and high speeds. It's very dangerous for the car to just stall in mid traffic. This has happened numerous times since then until I realized it only happens when the gas tank is full. Took it to dealer today and they confirmed it is due to the fuel tank rollover valve sticking and blocking a vent. Only solution is to replace the entire gas tank. Car stalled once today on the way to the dealer service center (they wanted it with a full tank) and then three times on my way home after the completion of their analysis. It will continue to stall until the tank level goes down a gallon or so of fuel.

  • 77,669 miles
Had just filled fuel tank and vehicle stalled before getting out of gas station driveway. I was coming to a stop as exiting station and while braking (almost at a full stop), experienced a quick engine surge and then engine stalled. Luckily I was at a stop, shifted to park and restarted vehicle. The same thing happened less than a mile away as I was making a right turn, without power steering the vehicle was now stalled in the oncoming lane. I came to a full stop, shifted to park and restarted again. Luckily I was less than a mile from my office and just parked vehicle there. The same thing happened when I last filled my tank (approx 10 days ago), stalling several times before I could get out of the costco parking lot. On that occasion, I congested traffic for several minutes while waiting for the vehicle to restart and head home. It didn't occur again during the subsequent days, but today I fueled up again and got the exact same issue - so it's definitely something related to the fueling process. I've had the vehicle since it was brand new and this is a new issue.

I filled the tank with gas, started to exit the station and the engine stalled. The out of fuel light came on even though it was full and it continued to stall and sputter. It has now happened three times since this first event and it is my understanding that this is a problem with this engine type.

Magnum 8-cyl

  • 123,500 miles
After filling the car with gas and pulling onto the state highway the car motor stopped running. It started back up and got up to around 45 mph then the motor stopped running again. Again the car started back up and got up to around 25 mph and the motor stopped running. Then it started back up, bucked about 15-20 times and got me home. Next day the car ran fine. Five days later, filled the cars gas tank up again and pulled into heavy traffic and the motor stopped running, was almost hit by a dump truck. Again the car started back up got up to around 35 mph and the motor stopped running. This has now been happening after every refill. I don't top off the tank.

Whenever I fill my gas tank, the vehicle will stall within one or two blocks from gas pumps. It can happen at 20 miles an hour or less. It can happen entering a highway at 50 miles per hour. The car will start right up and will normally run fine after stalling. On one or two occasions it stalled twice after a fill up. Lately it happens after each fill up regardless of gas station or brand of gas.

Magnum 8-cyl

  • 92,000 miles
After filling up my fuel tank and driving approximately 1/2 mile, the engine died. Restarted engine and it died again. After the third restart it continued to run. After having this occur approximately 12-15 times over the next 6 months, I discovered that if I fill it no more than14 gallons maximum, the problem will not occur. The problem is exactly what was reported in PE13016, however I have had the engine die at both low speeds and high speeds (50-65 mph).

Whenever I fill up my 2006 Dodge Magnum 5.7 rt, it dies without notice afterwards. It usually takes about 10 miles to work out all of the dieing and stalling before it works normally. This happens everytime the gas tank is filled to the top. I was almost in an accident when this happened, so I'm very paranoid after getting gas now, this should be fixed by Dodge.

Magnum 8-cyl

After filling my car and driving on the 710 freeway, while getting on the freeway the car just stalled. The steering got hard to turn as the vehicle was stalled. I managed to cruise to the side of the road and got the vehicle to start again. While driving it did it 2 more times until my gas started to go down. This happens almost every time I fill up the vehicle.

Magnum 8-cyl

  • 75,000 miles
The Magnum continually stalls after fill up. We have made a concerted effort not to over fill the vehicle, but it continues to stall for a few miles after fill up. This has been an ongoing issue for almost 20,000 miles now. This is a major safety issue. Either my wife or I have almost been rear-ended due to stalling in traffic. The dealer says they can fix it for around $1400. This should be a safety recall, not something dumped on the owner. When you go to all the mopar blogs, this issue is common on all 06 - 07 chargers, Magnums and Chrysler 300S. They know it's the check valve, and know it was a poor design, but too bad consumer.

After fueling the car up it stalled out several times (in traffic) while driving. This has happened on two other occasions since then. Upon stopping and restarting, the vehicle engine surged and stalled again. It is my understanding this is due to a faulty check valve within the fuel tank.
