Chrysler 300C owners have reported 58 problems related to tank assembly (under the gasoline fuel system category).
The contact owned a 2005 Chrysler 300c. While driving approximately 55 mph, the entire instrument panel failed and the contact smelled a strong burning odor inside the vehicle. The contact pulled the vehicle to the side of the road and noticed smoke and large flames coming from the trunk. The fuel tank exploded and the vehicle became engulfed in flames. There were no injuries. The fire department extinguished the fire. The vehicle was destroyed and towed to an independent mechanic. The manufacturer was not notified. The approximate failure mileage was 134,646.

I had just filled up the tank and pulled across the street and into a parking lot. As I was pulling into a parking spot the car died. I was able to get it restarted after about three attempts. After leaving the store I drove home and it died on me at the end on the parking lot as I was pulling into traffic. It died once more as I was driving through a residential area at approx. 25 mph. After I got it home, I allowed it to idle in the driveway for about 5 minutes with no problem. After eating dinner I took it for a drive and it happened again at an intersection. It died and took about five attempts to get it restarted.

Immediately after refueling, my car stalled three times on my drive home, each time when I was traveling about 5 mph approaching a stop sign. Since then, I have driven about 200 miles and have had no stalling problem. I took my car to a local Chrysler dealer and they could find no computer code error, and told me that I needed a new fuel tank, Chrysler received more than 1200 complaints about the 19-gallon fuel tank on 2006 Chrysler 300c, a problem where the fuel shut-off valve sticks, causing the vehicle to stall after refueling. In response to these complaints, Chrysler agreed to extend the warranty period to lifetime coverage. I called Chrysler customer service today. They refused to honor the extended warranty for my 19-gallon fuel tank as they agreed to in their letter -pe1016-58863. Pdf.
My 2006 Chrysler 300 stalls after I fill it with gas. This happened to me a number of times. I now longer can fill my gas tank. This is a dangerous problem as the car stalls while I am driving it. It stalled on me on the fwy. Luckily for me, there was heavy traffic and I was going 35 mph. I have been told I need a new gas tank which would cost me over 1000 dollars. There is a los angeles time article dated may 14,2013 which indicates nearly 200,000 complaints regarding 2006 300c, Dodge charger and Dodge magnum of having this problem. Chrysler needs to do a recall on these vehicles. Updated 03/12/14.
Engine stalled soon after filling gas tank. Has happened the last two times the tank was filled.
Vehicle stalls several times after filling up the gas tank, mostly while idling. And, it is difficult to re-start after stalling. Engine also runs "rougher" after fill-up. Problem has gotten worse over the past few months. Took 300c to local mechanic who says there is a problem with the gas tank overflow valve. Solution is to replace gas tank or never completely fill it up. It seems that with all of these similar safety complaints, Chrysler should find an alternative fix.
I was exiting a highway via an off ramp. When I came to a stop at the intersection the engine stalled out. After several attempts the engine restarted and the car drove normally. I had filled up the gas tank at prior to this incident.
After re-fueling vehicle, car stalled at 5 intersections. Vehicle was difficult to restart. Vehicle would not always go back into gear after restarting until several attempts were made. After burning off a few gallons of fuel on the highway, the vehicle no longer stalled/misfired. Tank was not "topped-off" when filled, it was filled until the pump stopped automatically. Stalling occurs every time vehicle is filled to full.

After refueling the car it will begin to run, and idle, rough to the point that it stalls. This happens every time the car is refueled. Most of the time it dies while idling, but has died while driving several times. The issue is worse if the car is refueled from the point that the low fuel light is on. It will die several times when refueled from this low level in the tank. The car has died while leaving a red light and getting as far as the intersection and having to try to restart it while in the middle of the intersection.
On several occasions, most recently 12/21/2/13 after fueling up my 2006 Chrysler 300c to a full tank (not overfilling) my car runs rough and stalls immediately after pulling out into traffic or within one mile of leaving the gas station. My car will not restart for at least 30-45 seconds of cranking the engine. This is definitely a huge safety concern by pulling out into moving traffic when my car stalls. Dealership is recommending a new gas tank and vapor canister which is a very costly repair ($1,500 -$2,000) and they cannot guarantee it will be resolved and there are no current recalls for this issue.
After fueling up my Chrysler 300c, my car stalled and completely shut down (approximately 2 miles after fill up). Luckily, I was in the parking lot of my work at the time, so I was only going 5-10 mph. Unfortunately, the power steering completely froze and I was unable to park the car, so the car was resting in the right-of-way of other cars driving in the lot. Also, I came two inches from hitting a tree since I could not steer the car away from any objects in my path. Thank goodness the breaks still worked. I was unable to restart the car for a few minutes. After approx. 10 minutes of resting the car in the middle of the parking lot, the car restarted with a "pop" noise. Once we got the car started, I was able to park it in a safe spot. I am now afraid to drive my car, especially in traffic or on the freeway at higher rates of speed. I am a single mom with two young kids and it really has me freaked out to think that we could be involved in an accident should this happen again. Obviously, the safety of my children, myself and any other innocent person on the road has me concerned. I'm the original owner, and I never topped off the tank. Please recall the fuel tank on these cars as they are not safe. Also, please include the 2005 year in your investigation.
The car will stall after a fillip, even when the tank is not over filled. This has placed me in several dangerous situations, where I am stranded on busy roads. This appears to be a know defect in many Chrysler cars and vans.
Right after pulling away from a filling station the car stalled, immediately restarted,drove out on the street and stalled again before reaching the next signal light. Restarted kept slightly more pressure on accelerator, and was fortunate not to have stop or slow down in order to reach home it has did the same thing about a month later. The only way I can be sure of the incident not occurring again is to guess how many miles I have gone based on cars? approximate miles per gal since your agency has completed your inquiry ( NHTSA action number pe13016 ) and the manufacturer has agreed to extend the fuel tank warranty to " lifetime ", how do I obtain an authorization to have my vehicle repaired. I have received no information from Chrysler as of this date ( 3/15/14 ).
Car stalls after fill-up. Will stall even without topping off tank. This will happen when pulling out into traffic. Will stall multiple times and buck while driving for a time. Can not fill up tank.
Filled up tank for the first time since purchasing my 2006 Chrysler 300c. (came from the dealership with a full tank) no more than 2 minutes of driving later the car began to shudder and lurch as if it were going to die. I was able to put it in neutral and keep it running but it was running rough. Continued on and pulled into a parking lot where the car died. I was able to restart it but it died shortly after. Restarted it again and was able to keep it running by giving it a little throttle. I began combing the internet and discovered this to be a fairly common issue after filling up. I limped the car home and siphoned a few gallons out. It seems to be running ok since then.
My 2006 Chrysler 300 c would just die after filing up with gas - happened on the freeway a few times- very dangerous. The dealer could not find the problem until we saw la times article 5/14/13 - they are fixing but Chrysler is not helping with $$ (replacing gas tank) car has only 42k miles.
For the past several months, every time I fill up with gas, my car dies several times before I get home, which is about 5 miles from the gas station. Sometimes it will speed up without me pushing the accelerator just before it dies. It dies before I get out of the gas station, sometimes. Other times it dies as I pull to a stop at the light 1,000 feet from the gas station. The most recent occurrence was 2 days ago. I've had it to the dealership service department twice for this, but they can't find anything wrong. The fill up before this last one, I only filled the tank half full, and it didn't die, so it must be something to do with filling it all the way up. I don't top the tank off, either.
My husband filled up the tank on 110413 (already had 1/4 tank). I drove to and from work, but once I backed into the yard the vehicle would not crank again. As I revved the engine the car would act like it would continue running after the initial start up, but as soon as I took my foot off of the accelerator the car cut off. I had to have the car towed to a Chrysler dealership, but no one mentioned the issues that customers have been having with this specific vehicle (2006 300c with hemi). Vehicle is currently in the shop and the mechanic mentioned it might be the engine. . . Oh really!!!!!.
After filling up with gas I went about 2-3 miles on us1 in wake forest, after stopping at the light at us1a I proceeded to turn onto us1a and my car stalled. I was in the middle of a lot of traffic and I had to manage to turn onto the side of the road and restart the car to continue to proceed. After traveling about another 1 to 2 miles it stalled again. This is the second time after filling the gas tank that this has happened and when the vehicle stalls I lose power steering which makes it very difficult to drive.
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.
Approximately 2 months ago, vehicle started stalling after refueling. Every refuel since without fail the vehicle stalls. Stalling occurs within minutes after refueling and will stall 2-3 times in a 5 minutes period. The vehicle performs correctly once you get past this stage. Based on my research (internet) there have been many other 2006 Chrysler products (incl town and country Mini van) experiencing the same issues. It appears the separator valve at the top of the fuel tank is the culprit.
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.
5 minutes after filling up my 06 Chrysler 300c srt-8 6. 1l at a gas station I was crossing over traffic to make a left turn and my car died in the middle of oncoming traffic. It took several minutes to restart then lurched forward after put into gear. This is the second time right after filling my tank this has occurred. The time before it stalled merging onto interstate on ramp.
Car stalled in middle of intersection. Other cars nearly struck me from rear. Stalled after restart, blocking intersection. This has happened several times, nearly resulting in accidents. Always occurs immediately after filling gas tank.
After fueling vehicle it starts then cuts off immediately it has happened several times if it don't cutoff right away it stalls soon as im driving off this is not safe wish NHTSA would start recalls before someone is injured or lose their life obviously this is a manufactures defect my car is at repair shop now needing new fuel tank and evap cannister cost 1000-2000 dollars there is no way I should be paying for a manufactures defect was told vehicle is getting raw fuel in evap cannister there has been far too many complaints for coincidence im asking the NHTSA to do their job before itcost someone their life.
My car started stalling and choking for 2-3 minutes after filling up the gas tank. It actually turns off 2-3 times with-in a block or two of the gas station and sometimes there is a 3-10 second delay when I shift from p or n into d. This first started in August and continues to happen. I've changed gas stations and it continues to happem.
I filled up my gas tank as always, started my car and immediately while pulling away it stalled than died. I started it again and made it into the intersection and it stalled and died again. This continued to happen while in traffic about 10 miles. I called Chrysler and they did not know what was wrong. I took it to get checked out and no one could give me any understanding of this problem. I went on line and come to realize that this is a big problem with many other Chrysler owners and there has been no recall nor help. I learned that others stopped filling their car up and that seemed to keep it from stalling. This has been going on now for about 6 months and I worry all the time for my families safety. Some have changed the gas tank however this has been unsuccessful in fixing this problem. Chrysler needs to take responsibility and do the right thing.
The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler 300 c. The contact stated that after refueling the vehicle and driving 30 mph, the engine stalled without warning. The contact stated that the failure only occurred when he could completely refuel the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection where they stated that the fuel tank needed to the replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 43,000. Updated 02/27/lj updated 02/27/14 updated 2/26/cn.
My 2006 Chrysler 300c engine cuts out every time I completely fill my gas tank. This problem was first detected about 6 months ago. Since, I have been very careful when re-fueling. Sometimes I still encounter engine sputtering and eventual loss of power and steering control. I try to mitigate and control the safety risk as best as I can. I have to quickly throw the car into neutral and crank the engine to restart so I can avoid being a safety threat to others on the road. Also thanks to Chrysler, my wife refuses to ride in the car with me as it poses a significant safety issue at any speed on any road. I have never had this experience in a car before. This is my first brand new car I bought Jan 6, 2006 at the age of 23. I regret my decision ever since. I have lost a ton of faith in chrsyler products and the brand it represents. The one thing Chrysler should do, is to recall these cars and offer the fix at no cost to the owner.
My car started stalling in June 2013, approx. 86000 miles Chrysler service could not find any reason for it stalling. A friend suggested that I check the la times, only to find hundreds of complaints. It stalls after filling the gas tank. Is replacing the gas tank at my expense the only solution? where can I find the federal office of defects investigation results for the 300c complaints.
After filling up the gas tank, and when leaving the gas station, as I'm slowing down to pull out into traffic the engine stalls. This only happens after a fill up of half a tank or more. Does not happen when I top off tank when I'm down to 3/4 tank. I get the car restarted and pull out but it feels like the engine is missing. When I start slowing down for a stop, the car will stall again. This happens anywhere from 2 to 4 times. The check engine light does not come on and there are no codes stored. The car has 155000 miles on it, and this started happing about a year ago. It only did it one time then maybe a month later it did it again. It wasn't doing all the time then but now it's getting to the point that it does it at every fill up. At first I thought maybe I got some bad gas, but I've read where other 300c owners are having the same problem. Chrysler knows about this and Chrysler should be fixing this problem free of charge.
2005 Chrysler 300c. Consumer writes in regards to problems with vehicle engine. The consumer stated after he left the gas station, the engine began to flutter and then stalled. The consumer then learned if he only filled the tank 3/4 full, the stalling did not occur.
