problem #5

Can not put fuel into the gas tank. The pump shuts off every few seconds due to back pressure. A mechanic checked the system and said the problem was a stuck roll over valve inside the fuel tank and the entire gas tank would have to be replaced at a cost of $1400. When this happens, gas splashes out onto car and anyone trying to fill the tank. Spilling gasoline on the outside of the car an myself is a safety hazard!

Fuel spews out every time I try to put gas in the vehicle. I am only able to put 20 or 30 cents in at a time. This started on 11/01/16 to present time and happens every time I try to put fuel in tank.

Gas tank roll over valve: There seems to be a defective component at the top of the gas tank which is causing the vehicle to stall at least once after filling up the gas tank. This is a safety issue and should be recalled as it affects a lot of vehicles based on my searches.

Driving on the interstate and auto suddenly lost power although engine was still running it would just idle, even with the gas pedal all the way to the floor, turned auto off and let it set for a few minutes and when it restarted it appeared to be ok, would take gas, then on 3-19-2015 this happened 3 different times within a 150 miles on the interstate, would have to unhook the battery and reconnect it before the problem would clear up, then drive it just a bit more and it would happen again.

My 2010 Patriot limited stalls all the time. It gets worse while sitting at a red light. I have to put the car in neutral, rev up the engine so it does not go dead. It seems to get worse if the gas tank is below 1/2 tank. Also I really thought someone was stealing my gas because the gauge goes up and down. All the info I have looked up it's all Jeep products 2010 2011 2012 2013 all have the same problems.
