#1 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
I bought a 2006 Chrysler 300c new from the dealership in may of 2006. At approximate 25,000 miles it began to shut off after filling up the gas tank completely at the gas station. I've always put the correct fuel in my car as recommended by the manual and the dealerships I've taken her to for routine maintenance. At intermittent intervals throughout the ownership of my car, it has shut off, stranded me on dark roads and have almost caused accidents on highways, busy streets with my children in the car. This car has been dealership maintained & I've adamantly followed the maintenance schedules. Have taken it to the dealership and had spark plugs, fuel pump, water pump, thermometer changed all needlessly. I've spent close to $4000 in repairs and needless parts. The dealership has ran various diagnostics and haven't found anything wrong. The car now has close to 76,000 miles on it and will shut off if the gas tank goes to the quarter of tank mark or when it's full. I never top it off because I've been warned not to top off my gas intake. I've sought second opinions on why this might be happening and the dealerships in NY, NJ and FL have informed me that this is a common complaint they receive for all of the Chrysler 300 series. This is a dangerous malfunction that could possibly cost lives plus cost an expensive loss for this car. I've spoken to other owners plus researched other forums, and there are hundreds of the same complaints about when the car is fueled especially after the car reaches 50,000 miles on it. The last incident was oct. 30, 2013 in which I was almost in an accident due to the fact that my car shut off at a stop light after the light turned green. The cars behind me started to move and the car directly behind me had to swerve to keep from hitting me. This is a dangerous problem. It was Thu., Mar. 27, 2008 when this other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred.

#2 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The car was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. The VIN of this vehicle was 2C3KA63H36_. Car stalls after filling at gas station due to flooding or other issue. Dealer would not admit its a problem. Happened approx 4 times where I stalled in traffic and almost was rear ended. Had to drive vehicle in parking lot accelerating 8 times to burn off fuel before it was safe to drive while car shuddered. Cannot fill up tank anymore. Was told I need a new tank but there was a 6 month back order due to all the people requesting new tanks. This issue happened on 10/24/12.
#3 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle involved was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. After filling up the fuel tank from a start of 1/8 th to full tank, the car stalled after leaving the service station about 200 feet down the road while stopped at a light. After getting the vehicle restarted I began to accelerate from the stopped position but driving power train was fairly erratic as the car attempted to lurch forward or accelerate unpredictably then would pull back by nearly stalling. This continued for several miles before reaching my driveway. The car while in neutral loped substantially from 2000 rpm to 100rpm several times before stalling. Attempting to start the car after stalling was successful. Leaving the car parked and off for 60 minutes had no beneficial effect. After returning the starting was very difficult and the instrument panel gauges were not lit until the car started again. The car continues to be idol erratically both while in park and in drive and at slow speeds. This issue happened on 10/21/13.
#4 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The car was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. After leaving the gas station (filling the tank) the car sputtered a few times, then as I approached a stop light it stalled out. I pulled away okay but it stalled again at the next light. After getting gas, the car is hesitant while driving and stalls out, usually lasting for 1-3 miles. It was 10/17/13 when this other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred.
#5 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The car involved is a 2006 Chrysler 300c. I was on the way to a doctors appt with my pregnant daughter on 264 heading towards chesapeake, va. I was doing 55 mph and the tank was on 1/8 th of a tank. As we were driving, about 15 min later, the car lurched, a ding was heard, the etc light flashed, the rpms dropped to 0, then resumed a second later causing the lurching forward. About 3 to 4 minutes and intermittently over the next 15 min later, it did the same thing, but also stalled at the stop lights on the way there. No codes came up when diagnostics were put on it. The throttle control unit was replaced and a relearn was done, this did nothing. Same thing happened. I have read many other reports of this happening and no one has an exact fix for this. Also, may have nothing to do with this, but about 2 weeks prior to this happening, I was filling up with gas and the tank overflowed. No problems occurred through the next 3 or 4 fill ups, the tank was on an 1/8 when the first hesitation and stalling occurred. The failure date was Wednesday, September 25, 2013.
#6 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. On 8/29, I picked my car up from the dealership for a repair to the body. When I attempted to start the vehicle, it turned over but would not start. After several attempts, I went back inside and made the service manager aware. He came out and after a few tries, it started. They told me they didn't know what was wrong with it but that it seemed to be fine so I could take it. I started the vehicle with no issue and took it to a nearby gas station to fill it up. After filling it up, it would not start. The vehicle was towed back to the dealership. It was at the dealership from 8/29 to 9/26. During that time, the battery was changed, the evap canister was replaced and the gas tank was replaced. When I went to pick te vehicle up on 9/26, it would not start. After several attempts and pumping the gas while turning the ignition, the vehicle started. I am now only able to start the vehicle if the gas pedal an pumped while the key is being turned. The vehicle has also attempted to stall several times since I got it back and doesn't have the power it had when I bought it. I have also smelled gas while driving immediately after accelerating. My check engine light is now on also. The dealer has requested that I bring the vehicle back to them and I fear that it will be there another 4 weeks and return to me in the same or even worse condition!. It was Aug. 29, 2013 when this other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred.
#7 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. After filling up my gas tank, I encountered numerous stalls while driving. Thankfully, it was city driving early in the morning. Since then, I have encountered numerous situations where the car has stalled after filling up. I initially thought it was bad gas (I. E. Water in my gas tank), however, I have since varied the fueling stations and brands I use and have seen no effect. It always seems to happen after I fill up, and it seems to go away after the tank has emptied a bit. The latest encounter was yesterday (I filled up two days prior) while I had my family in the car - multiple stalls in mid-day city traffic. And again this morning. The gas tank is still quite full (it shows over "f" on the gauge). I _never_ top off when I fill - I simply wait until the filler turns itself off when filling. I have never seen this problem prior to the first occurrence in mid November of 2012, which I initially (as indicated) wrote off as bad gas due to hurricane sandy (I figured the storm may have caused water in the tanks of gas stations). After hearing about numerous issues on this, I wanted to add my experiences to the growing list. The car in question is a 2006 Chrysler 300c srt-8. This problem occurred on Monday, Nov. 19, 2012.
#8 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle was a 2005 Chrysler 300c. Engine stalls after filling up the gas tank. Currently I can not fill up the gas tank and if I do the engine will stall and die. Last occurrence I was decelerating due to traffic to around 30-35 mph. The engine died during the deceleration. The traffic had picked up to 50-55 mph and I could not start the car so I had to pull off the road. If this had been in a location that I could not pull off the road I could have been in a serious accident. To compound the issue I can not go from neutral start the car and then into drive. The transmission will not shift into drive. I have to pull over and go into park before drive to get it to work. This problem occurred on Thursday, August 25, 2011.

#9 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle involved is a 2006 Chrysler 300c. I have been back to the dealer 5 times because the car stalls when making a sharp turn/u turn or hard stop/start. The car will stall and the esp/bass and oil lights come on. I lose power steering and power brakes. The car will not restart until the key has been turned completely off and then back on. The dealer always tells me it is operating normally. I finally gave up and was just living with it after the vehicle went out of warranty. It was only after I read another person's account online that I realized it was happening after a fuel fill (I do not top off my tank). After learning this, I can now make the car stall on demand. All I have to do is fill it until the pump shuts off, then make a hard turn back and forth and the car stalls. If you pull out from the gas station slowly and make no sharp movements, the car will not stall. The dangerous part of this is if you have to make an emergency maneuver after filling the tank, the car will stall. This other fuel system tank filling/charging problem happened on Dec. 26, 2006.
#10 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle involved was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. The VIN of this vehicle was 2C3LA63HX6_. After filling the gas tank to full, stopping after the pump clicks off the first time, the vehicle stalled after running for around 5 minutes. Restarted vehicle and same thing happened two more times. Vehicle continues to do this regularly. The failure date was Thursday, December 6, 2012.
#11 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The car was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. I filled up my car with premium fuel (as always) and stopped the fill at the first click of the gas pump. I started my car and reset my trip information into my computer and put it in drive and got on the 59 north feeder road. It started jerking like the engine was cutting out so I slowed down and when I slowed down it completed died on the feeder road. I started back up and it missed a couple of times and died again at the red light. It seems that if you are on an open stretch of road going over 30 or 40 it won't die - but will cut out and jerk really bad. This has happened another 10-15 times since then. I stopped filling the car up and just put in 3/4 tank. My husband will forget and fill it up and it does this every time you fill the car up. It has died in the middle of the road as I was leaving a gas station, it has died in innersections after leaving a red light. Very frustrating and dangerous!. This other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred Oct. 12, 2010.
#12 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle involved was a 2005 Chrysler 300c. After filling up the gas tank and driving away from gas station, engine would stall and die. Tried restarting but difficult to do after many attemps. Vehicle would finally drive normal after starting and running engine at higher than idle speed. This stalling would happen anytime I would fill tank. I would never top off tank but would fill till pump would stop the first time. If I fuel vehicle without filling to top, vehicle runs fine. It was Thursday, Jul. 22, 2010 when this other fuel system tank filling/charging issue happened.
#13 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The car involved was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. The VIN of this vehicle was 2C3LA63H26_. This was the first of several incidences. After fueling, the engine began rough idling. I thought I had just gotten water in my tank. After several minutes the engine seemed to smooth out and I left the gas station and entered a busy intersection. As I entered the intersection, I pressed down on the accelerator and the engine stalled. There were cars all around me as I tried to restart the engine. After several tries, it started and I pulled to the side of the road. The engine ran roughly for several more minutes and once again smoothed out. The stalling can also happen during right turns, but always happens after refueling. My dealer said the problem was the valve on top of the gas tank. When filling the tank, fuel leaks over into the cannister which then floods out the engine. Because the valve and the tank are one unit, the entire tank must be replaced. Since a repair is so expensive, I now do not fill my tank above the 3/4 level. This problem occurred on May 15, 2011.
#14 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle involved was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. The VIN of this vehicle is 2C3LA63H66_. I bought my car new in March 2006 and I am the only owner/driver. I do like my car and will buy another Chrysler 300c. When the car was new I had several stalling issues where the car would stall at low speeds or while sitting at a traffic light. I do not recall if it was after refueling. I took the car to the dealer and no "codes" were found and the dealer could not replicate the problem. The car than ran perfectly for six years with no stalling issues. All maintenance has been performed including new spark plugs as recommended by Chrysler. Starting earlier this year the stalling restarted and it only happens after I fill the car with fuel. I have tried several other gas stations and ran some fuel injection cleaner through the fuel system. I do not top off the tank when filling the car up. At one point the stalling occurred after every fill up and now it is not as often (every other fill up). After filling the tank the car starts normally and as I exit the gas station and stop to check to merge into traffic the car will stumble and stall. It restarts and will stall again if I don't keep the engine rpm's up. Sometimes after I fill up and quickly merge into traffic (and not allow the car to fall to idle speed) while accelerating up to 25-40 mph the car will stumble and it feels like it is not getting fuel. It does not stall because the car is gaining speed and then clears up after a "surge" and then runs fine till the next fill up cycle. I am careful about pulling out in heavy traffic after fill ups out of fear of it stalling. This other fuel system tank filling/charging problem happened on Jan. 15, 2013.
#15 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 2C3LA63H06_. After filling up with gas drove to stop light and car stalled. Had hard time starting. Took to pensacola Chrysler and the mechanic said we needed a new gas tank . 2100$'s. The failure date was May 13, 2013.
#16 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle involved was a 2005 Chrysler 300c. The VIN of this 300c is 2C3AA63H55_. I filled the tank up to full like I had many times before. I have always preferred relying on gallons and not the automatic pump shut off to know when it was full to prevent a possible overfilling. I had gone maybe 10 yards after restarting and she stalled. Tried to crank her back up, and she would sputter and try to start, but it took a few tries. Then, as I am pulling into the street, it died again but started right back up. Then it died 10 yards later, again. It continued to stall every few feet until I was able to get the rpms up and hold it in 1st and 2nd gear to attempt and burn up as much fuel as quickly as possible. However, coming to a complete stop anytime for the next 15 miles or so would cause a stall but always followed with an immediate start up. When it stalls that very first time it takes a few minutes for it to start and then it is very rough for a few miles. Since that day anytime I fill up to within about a gallon of maximum capacity it will start the stalling process all over again. Combine bad gas mileage with a tank that can't be filled and it's safe to assume I spend a lot of time at gas stations. The failure date was Jul. 4, 2011.
#17 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle was a 2005 Chrysler 300c. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 2C3AA63H05_. After filling gas tank, engine would repeately stall (at idle or at 40 mph) up to 6 times within 2+ miles. . Incident did not seem to occur if the tank was not full. The failure date was May 15, 2010.
#18 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle involved was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is 2C3LA73W66_. Vehicle stalled 3 times after filling up the gas tank. Very close to a multiple car pile up behind me. Tank was not topped off and never has. Chrysler knows this is a problem yet refuses to help the owners of these vehicles. The gas tank is faulty, causing raw fuel to enter the evap system. This other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred 04/28/2013.
#19 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The car is a 2006 Chrysler 300c. After filling the fuel tank as I was leaving the station the car stalled and the check engine light came on. The car started and I drove about 3 blocks and it stalled again at a traffic light. It ran ok the next several fill-ups and then it happened and this time it stalled four (4) time. Once on a busy by-pass I spoke with Chrysler customer service on March 20, 2012and they will do nothing about this. Clearly this is a serious safety issue. I am having the fuel tank replaced at a cost of $1200. 00. . This other fuel system tank filling/charging problem happened on Jan. 28, 2013.
#20 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle involved was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. After filling the fuel tank the engine will stall when stopping for a light or when first leaving the light. It will also jerk while driving. This happens until the fuel level goes down. It did not do this when first purchased. Now it happens every time the tank is filled. If the car stalls while driving the steering and brakes become difficult to use. There are many reports online about this same problem. Chrysler does not claim to know anything about this at the dealer. Someone will get hurt or worse if this problem is not addressed. Thank you. The failure date was 01/10/2013.
#21 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The car involved is a 2006 Chrysler 300c. The VIN of this vehicle is 2C3KA63H86_. Five minutes after refueling my 2006 300c, it stalled at a stop light. Vehicle restarted quickly, but could not hold steady rpms at idle or higher. Drove immediately to dealer, and vehicle stalled three more times on the way. Dealer personnel indicated stalling could be caused by over-filling the gas tank (however, I had not continued filling the tank after the pump auto-shut-off). Dealer suggested running the engine for 15 minutes to clear vapor canister. This did not help. Dealer replaced fuel tank and vapor canister, $1500. This is a dangerous condition since the rough running leads to stalling at intersections or stop signs. It was Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013 when this other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred.
#22 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
Every time I put gas in my Chrysler 300c and start the engine, the car tends to jerk forward and then the engine literally shuts down. This is a very serious problem, because the engine has shut down while I'm on the interstate; after filling up gas tank to capacity, my vehicle stalled after driving for not even one mile because fuel flooded the engine. The vehicle restarted after several attempts but my vehicle continued to stall after a distance. I took vehicle to an authorized dealer who stated that the fuel tank needed to be replaced. The fuel tank was replaced, but I am very concerned that this problem could have caused a crash resulting in a lot of damage and possible death!!. This other fuel system tank filling/charging problem happened on Wednesday, September 5, 2012.
#23 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle is a 2006 Chrysler 300c. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 2C3LA73W06_. The engine will stall after every fill-up. It stalls within 15 seconds after starting it up at the gas station. It will then stall repeatedly at intersections and every time the car comes to a stop. In addition, it has stalled while making right hand turns and misfires and stumbles while at speed. The stalling/misfiring episodes do not occur once 2-3 gallons of gas have been consumed. This situation is extremely dangerous as I have been nearly rear ended as traffic started to pull away from a green light, and also stalled at intersections while making right turns. The Chrysler dealer said nothing was wrong since they didn't find any codes or TSB's regarding this problem. I have taken the car to an independent garage and they found a lot of chatter on their mechanic help websites. They think it might be the emission control that sits on top of the gas tank. The top gas in the tank is flooding over to the engine and stalling it out. Since Chrysler nor anyone else can say what definitively is going on I have cautiously not been filling the tank. This car is dangerous since the next owner may not be aware of this issue. This issue happened on Wed., Feb. 1, 2012.
#24 - Other Fuel System Tank Filling/charging problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle was a 2005 Chrysler 300c. The VIN of this 300c is 2C3AA63H45_. Chrylser 300c 2005 will completely die upon filling tank with fuel. Will restart and die 1 or 2 more times then run fine. My concern is accdent waiting to happen. Solitution change gas tank which chrylser refuses to do without customer paying for it. I feel a recall is needed before someone it injured or possibly killed. Filed a complaint, have a case number nothing resolved. I feel a soultion is necessary as soon as possible. Problem has occured from time of purchase. This other fuel system tank filling/charging issue occurred Wednesday, Apr. 20, 2011.
