car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Chrysler 300C

The car involved is a 2005 Chrysler 300c. In reference to pe13016, the action refers to cars from model years 2005 and 2006. Yet, the final investigation results only include the 2006 model year? if 2005 cars are affected (as mine has been since 2011 and is documented in 300c user forums on the internet by me at the time), then why is my car not included? I understand that now, some owners are receiving "lifetime warranty" letters for the 19-gal gas tank that is the cause of the sudden stalls after filling up with gas. I have not received a letter, yet my car does have (and was found by the NHTSA that 2005 model year was affect) the problem. It is very dangerous and now I have to remember to not fill up the gas tank everytime. I called my local Chrysler repair shop and they confirmed my VIN is not included, yet I have had the problem for almost 3 years. Please advise me (in writing or by phone) as to why you found 2005 cars problematic, yet only included 2006 cars in your final investigation summary to be affected. The failure date was Sunday, August 21, 2011.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Ford F-150

The car involved is a 2011 Ford F-150. Truck has a 36 gallon gas tank. Fuel gauge does not go to full when filled. While driving fuel gauge goes to empty and message center comes on low fuel 10 miles to empty. Tank still has 20 gallons or more in tank. When filling with gas after this happens there is a high pressure release of gas fumes from the filler neck when pump nozzle is placed in the neck. An audible whoosh sound is made and the build up of gas fumes is consistent with every time the gauge and message center think the tank is empty. When starting the truck after this occurrence it takes 2-3 tries before the engine will start. The engine malfunction indicator lamp will come on for 3-20 minutes before going off. The Ford vehicle health report reads "engine, transmission, amp; emissions. The truck has been serviced 8 times with no corrective results. My major concern is the build up of fumes and the possibility of fire. It appears that Ford has known of this problem with trucks having 36 gallon tanks since 2008 based on comments from other owners when I googled my problem. To this date Ford does not appear to have a solution to the problem. This problem occurred on Monday, August 19, 2013.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of GMC Envoy

In 2010 after filling my gas tank in my very well kept/serviced 2003 GMC Envoy I began driving home and noticed that my gas gauge wasn't working. The tank was full but the fuel gauge read below the empty. After tapping on the instrument panel, restarting the vehicle, checking fuses, etc nothing worked so I took it to the shop and was advised that GMC has known about this problem for quite some time and won't do anything about it. Either the fuel sending unit or the sensor is bad and must be replaced at a cost $500 - $600. After doing some research I see that this is quite the problem amongst GMC vehicle owners and confirmed that GMC will do nothing about it. . . Now my fuel gauge reads differently at every time the vehicle is started; but it never reads correctly. . . . This should be investigated and GMC should step up and take responsibility for their inferior parts. . . . The failure date was Sun., Aug. 1, 2010.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Acura MDX

The vehicle was a 2004 Acura Mdx. As I was attempting to put gasoline into my vehicle (it still had 1/4 of a tank), with the nozzle on automatic (as opposed to manual), after about five seconds, the pump shut off and gasoline spewed out of the car at the intake location. I was splashed with gasoline. Thinking that I had placed the nozzle incorrectly, I tried it again with the same result. I was again splashed with gasoline. I then wondered if there was something wrong with the gas pump and I moved to a different pump at the same station. Again, I had the same result, but I was splashed less as I had anticipated what ultimately happened. I told my husband what had happened, and the next day, he went to the station with me. He was able to dribble some gasoline into the tank with the nozzle on manual. I looked up the problem on the internet and discovered the same issue with several vehicles of the same year, make and model. On 12/21/13, I called the dealership and informed them of the issue, and I called Acura customer care to report it. It was seen at the dealership on 12/22/13. Two parts were replaced -- "canister assy" and "mod. Canister d" (not the gas tank) on 12/23/13, as the parts had failed functional testing. I picked up the vehicle at approximately 2:45 pm on 12/23/13, drove to a gas station, put the nozzle in the intake location and had the exact same result as before. Gasoline spewed out and sprayed me again. I have safety concerns on a couple of levels: the spilled/spewed gasoline poses a fire hazard for me, the vehicle, the gas station, and those people around me who are also filling up, and having gasoline spilled on me is an obvious health hazard. This other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred Jan. 18, 2013.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Hyundai Santa Fe

The vehicle having this issue was a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe. I have 2009 Santa Fe. This happened first time in February 2014 that I was filling gas (I always do full) and as I started leaving the gas station my fuel gauge showed empty. I went back to the gas station and ask the attendant that there is a mistake, my tank is not full it is empty. But I was wrong, because he told me there is no way the pump machine will lie and he fills 100s of vehicle per day from each of his machine. Just to double check, the next filling I used a different gas station and it happened again. Now this has become routine and since my last two visit at pump, even the check engine light is coming on now. I have to wait few days and mileage to put on that the check engine will go off but the fuel gauge will still show less than half the tank. At this moment, I know my car and can predict with some degree of certainty about the mileage my car will provide but as the car ages and other things in the engine ages, it will become more difficult to predict the gas level. So I might be in trouble stranded on highway or in city during rush hour. Also I found online that this is not just my problem, many of other Santa Fe had similar issues. Therefore, I thought I should also share my experience here. This other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred Sat., Feb. 1, 2014.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Hyundai Santa Fe

Vehicle identification number (VIN): 5NMSH13E68_. (2008 Hyundai Santa Fe) the vehicle gas gauge is sticking on empty after filling it up and the check engine light comes on. After 1/4 tank of gas has been consumed the gas gauge will read normal. The check engine light will also go off. There has not been a loss in power to the engine or any other indicators that there is a problem. This issue can be reproduced every time after fill up. The tank does not have to be on empty to reproduce the problem. I have seen TSB's for the 2007 model but nothing yet for the 2008. This problem occurred on Mar. 6, 2014.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Kia Motor Spectra

The vehicle having this issue was a 2005 Kia Motor Spectra. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is KNAFE16125_. Pulling out of a driveway to center lane and then merging with traffic, the vehicle would not accelerate. Rpms would flare, but car had no power as if engine was not getting fuel. This would happen intermittently. Vehicle was taken to dealer who stated gas had gotten into an emissions part in the fuel take, stating it was caused from over filling the tank. Vehicle owner told dealer that the tank had never been over filled or capped off while fueling the vehicle, so the part must be defective. Vehicle owner still had to pay to replace canister close valve. Dealer claimed that rpm flare up and loss of power was caused from the clutch slipping, although rpm flare up never occurred while dealer had the vehicle. At 100,000 estimated miles, the same fuel valve needs to be replaced again, and to date, the fuel tank has never been over filled. It was Wednesday, January 20, 2010 when this other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Mercedes Benz E55

The vehicle involved was a 2006 Mercedes Benz E55. VIN of the vehicle was WDBUF76J96_. I own two mercedes E55 vehicles. One is 2005, one is 2006. On the 2005 I have had what has become a common symptom of fuel smell first outside the car (especially after filling the tank completely), which migrates to inside the car as the problem worsens. I believe a recall compaign was performed on the car in 2011 to address this issue. The problem returned. The car is obviously out of warranty and has had the issue addressed a few times now. As the original owner, I have had first hand experience of the issue over the course of 9 years. I did not think too much of it at the time, except now that I have another 2006 E55. . . Virtually identical. . . Exact same thing is happening. The 2006 was purchased used in July of 2013. I complained to the used car dealer about the issue (it came with a 6 month warranty) and they said it was possibly a leaking o-ring on a spark plug. The fuel smell remained after the repair however, very strong when tank filled or the car on an incline. . . Especially on hot days. Only after searching the internet did I find that many others had the same experience. . . And I was 2 for 2 on my cars. Same models, same symptoms. The 2006 unit is far worse, however and may have never had the original recall performed. I pulled the back seats and inspected the fuel areas. . . And sure enough small puddles of gas and stains from previous puddles. The smell is so strong now I avoid using the car. When you have a single car with a singular problem you don't suspect much. When you read about others with a similar issue, your suspicions may raise a bit. However, I promise you when you buy another identical car and it has the exact same overwhelming problem, that's when you wake up. The fuel smell is so strong, I have not had a single occupant not notice in the last 3 months. I'm parking the car until I can figure out a way to get it resolved. It was 07/10/2013 when this other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Mercury Grand Marquis

The car is a 2006 Mercury Grand Marquis. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 2MEFM74V06_. Immediately after filling the fuel tank, while stopped at an intersection, the fuel tank fell out of the vehicle. Investigation has revealed that both straps holding the fuel tank into the vehicle have failed due to rust and corrosion. The failure is approximately 3-4 inches from the straps rear attachment points. The only thing preventing the tank from completely separating from the vehicle is the filler tube which is holding the drivers side of the fuel tank in relative position with approximately a 3in drop. The passengers side has completely dropped and is resting on the ground. I believe the tank straps are defective because while there is some evidence of rust to other components in the vicinity of these straps, none of them have anywhere near the degree of rust the straps have. Both straps have rusted through and failed allowing the fuel tank to separate and fall to the ground on the passenger's side. Fortunately this occurred at a stop, had this occurred at speed there is a high potential for a catastrophic fuel fire which could have resulted in injury or death. This other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred Wednesday, June 26, 2013.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Mercury Sable

I have a 2003 Mercury Sable wagon VIN 1mehm59s43a628813. It's suppose to have an 18 gallon gas tank. I can never get more than 13 gallons in and the guage never shows full. The dealer had the car 4 days but did nothing. I can travel 220-230 miles before having to refill. I fill up when the low tank light comes on. They say they are looking into the situation. This is a dangerous situation as on the open road a gas station may not be available leaving a driver standed in unsafe areas. I brought this to their attention within several weeks of purchase which was 7/30/03 and a number of times since. This is hazardous. This issue happened on Friday, August 22, 2003.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Mitsubishi Outlander

The vehicle having this issue was a 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander. Vehicle identification number (VIN): JA4LZ41G53_. Over the last 4-6 months I noticed a gasoline odor after filling the gas tank (affected part). The gas odor has gotten significantly stronger outside and inside the vechicle each month. If I fill the gas tank today there is an extreme gas odor/fume that is leaking from the gas tank. As the gas tank empties the odor decreases. There isn't a gas liquid leakage that you would see on the ground, but a flume leakage that fills the pasenger comparment and surrounds the outside rear area of the vechicle. I think if there was spark, open flame, rear end collision, or if the vechicle was parked in direct sun light a combustible fire/explosion could occur. This an extremely dangerous and unsafe condition. I have brought this problem to the attention of the dealer and they have received multiple complaints from customers owning 2003 and newer Mitsubishi model years, with the same problem. The solution is to replace the gas tank at an estimated cost of $1500. They said there should be recall for something as dangerous and life threating as this but there isn't. The outcome could be similar to the Ford pinto gas tank defect that caused the injury and death of many people before a recall was issued national highway traffic safety administration. This other fuel system tank filling/charging problem happened on Tuesday, January 7, 2014.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Nissan Frontier

The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Nissan Frontier is 1N6AD07U55_. My Nissan Frontier truck's "check engine soon" light appeared. The warning was dtc p0463 (fuel level sensor circuit high input) . It corresponds with Nissan's technical bulletin el07-027b, reference ntb07-069b. After filling the tank, the fuel guage took approximately 20 minutes to register full. Now my fuel gauge does not work at all- it simply displays zero fuel present in the tank. I've already ran out of fuel once this week, on the highway. This problem is caused by the deterioration of the unit based on use and not time. This problem occurred on Aug. 15, 2013.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Nissan Quest

The vehicle was a 2007 Nissan Quest. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 5N1BV28U77_. Going across the betsy ross bridge, from philadelphia to cherry hill, about 9pm to get gas as well as dinner. The engine lost power and then shot off when we were not quite half way over the bridge. There wasn't allot of traffic, so I was able to pull over onto the shoulder and put my hazard lights on. Tried to start the car but it wouldn't turn over. The gas gauge was at a 1/4 tank of gas. A port authority police office arrived within 10 minutes and pushed our van to the rest of the way over the bridge to get us out of the traffic as the shoulder is very narrow. Got to the bottom of the bridge and coasted to a side area where we could wait for help. Multiple attempts to start to the car failed. Help arrived about an hour later with gas can. Put about 2 gallons of gas into the car. Car started right up. We went the rest of the way right to a gas station. The van has a 20. 1 gallon tank. Took almost 19 gallons at fill up. Which means we ran out of gas even though the gas gauge said otherwise. After filling up the tank, the fuel gauge was reading full. I found NHTSA recall bulletin #10v07400. The problem is an exact match for my problem. Specifically there is an issue with the fuel sender mis-reporting the gas level. Found various news reports that list and do not list the Nissan Quest as part of the recall. This problem occurred on 02/22/14.

Subsequent to filling gas tank, gasoline was observed leaking from the rear undercarriage area, near the rear wheel driver's side. Approximately 1/2 to 1 gallon of gas was observed to leak onto the ground. A slow fuel leak continues in the same area, and a strong smell of gasoline in the passenger compartment persists until the fuel gauge indicates approximately 3/4 full. At this point, no leakage is observed, and a light smell of gasoline persists. This represents a dangerous condition and appears to be a manufacturer's defect. This problem occurred on Monday, Apr. 7, 2014.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Toyota Tundra

The vehicle involved was a 2012 Toyota Tundra. I purchased my flex fuel Tundra 5. 7 in November of 2011. I started to experience issues with cold starts in December of 2012. I had an extended crank time, and it would take multiple attempts to start the truck. I took it to the dealership for the first time in January of 2013. The dealership reset my computer. The issue seems to be resolved. The following winter, in December of 2013, I started to experience the same issue with cold starts. The dealer apparently reset my computer again. Just a month later, January 2014, the extended crank on cold starts began again. This time, they told me my alcohol density was reading 49%. They said it should be at 85%, however, I am not using straight ethanol gas, which I told them numerous times, so my reading should not be 85%. I was told the computer should reset to 0 when I fill up, but my truck is not. It's just building up, which results in an inaccurate alcohol density reading. The dealership told me that the only current solution is if my tank drops below 1/4 tank, I should only fill it half way, drive it gently, and then go back to fill it the rest of the way. After filling it, I was told to let it idle, and drive it gently when I pull out of the gas station. This is unacceptable. Following my last visit to the dealership, when I refilled my truck for the first time after the last reset, the 'miles to empty' was reading 425! my truck usually ranges between 300 and 320. The 426 miles to empty reading only happened once, but again, the inconsistency and inaccurate readings are nonsense, especially on a $35k+ vehicle. Since then, I have researched the issue, and I'm not the only Tundra owner with this issue. Other flex fuel Tundra owners are having the same issue. This problem occurred on Wed., Dec. 19, 2012.

Was told Toyota would not cover the repair or part under their emissions warranty. Toyota is attempting to blame this problem on consumer error when filling the gas tank. How is the charcoal canister not part of the emissions system when it's purpose is to serve as a filter of gas/exhaust fumes. Toyota is once again not standing by their warranties or products.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Volvo V70

The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was YV1SW61T84_. My 2004 Volvo V70 wagon spewed and spit gas when being filled with gasoline. When the automatic shut off from the gas pump engaged, gas from the tank and the filler line gushed and poured out of the tank. This happened on several occasions including the very first time I filled the vehicle with gas. It also occurred when I attempted to fill the gas tank slowly so that pressure would not eject gasoline from the tank. The car was brought to the dealer where it was purchased (smith CO. Motors - charleston, wv) for the problem to be fixed on March 31, 2004. After inspecting valves in the gas tank and fuel filler tube, the dealer contacted me to tell me no problem had been found. I asked the dealer service manager if the tank had been filled with gas to make sure gasoline did not continue to gush from the tank. The dealer then filled the tank and called to me to confirm that the problem had not been fixed. The car was then at the dealer and out of service until April 8, 2004, when a Volvo representative discovered that the car had a manufacturing defect. I was told the defect was that a valve had not been installed on the car at the factory. On April 12, 2004 I returned home from work and pulled into my driveway. I left the car running in my driveway. After 1 to 2 minutes inside, I notice a strong smell of gasoline. The car had stopped running and was freely spilling gallons of gasoline into my driveway. The dealer discovered a new gas tank had not been properly installed by the service technician. I am interested in NHTSA investigating if the repeated failures of my fuel system are related. I am further interested in NHTSA determining if other 2004 Volvos with similar fuel system components could have also left the factory without a completely assembled fuel system. I encountered a very serious safety problem that could have resulted in a catastrophic accident. This other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred Wednesday, March 31, 2004.

car   Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of Volvo V70

The vehicle is a 2001 Volvo V70xc. Vehicle identification number (VIN): YV1SZ58D21_. I was recently told my 2001 v79xc needed ball joints, then sway bars and someone else said struts! also: I have had the car diagnosed, the system reported throttle module errors and electircal or circuit problems; throttle module cleaned, then replaced; headlights replaced 3 times (wiring causes shorts); gas filter replaced  two junes in a row gas propelled out of the tank back at me upon pumping (something about air intake line was clogged), the brackets underneath the car are totally rusted  not stainless steel! I had the cooling fan replaced, car overheated into the red! I too have had little time to enjoy my car. The e brake sticks in the winter, because the coating on the lines/cables is cracked, broken/burned due to improper suspension. My sun roof, interior lights and rear hatch door works intermittently in cold weather. The glove compartment was rattling loudly and the dealer I bought it from tried to fix it and told me I had to live with it! of course another dealership fixed it outright. The seatbelt frequently sticks and doesnt take up the slack intermittently only to get shut in the drivers door frequently, when I just about think it has corrected itself. And, there is a strange draft on the front passenger side window that gets quite cold in the winter. The seal seems fine and its another problem no shop seems to know anything about. This issue happened on 06/01/2003.
