#2 - Tank Assembly problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. After filling up gas tank to capacity, vehicle stalled after driving for approximately one mile because fuel flooded the engine. The vehicle restarted after several attempts but vehicle continued to stall after a mile. 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 still concerned that this problem could have caused a crash resulting in a lot of damage and possible death. The vehicle only had 26,100 miles. This tank assembly problem happened on Wednesday, Mar. 14, 2012.

#3 - Tank Assembly problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The reporting person's vehicle is a 2005 Chrysler 300c. The contact stated that while driving 55 mph, the vehicle ran out of fuel and stalled. The contact stated that the fuel gauge displayed a reading indicating that fuel was present in the fuel tank at the time of the failure. The vehicle was not taken to have the failure diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and offered no assistance. The failure mileage was 92,000. This tank assembly problem happened on Thu., Feb. 9, 2012.
#4 - Tank Assembly problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The car involved was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. The car will hesitate and stall unexpectedly. It seems to occur only immediately after refueling. After driving a few miles, the problem seems to go away. Internet chatter seems to indicate a bad evap solenoid/canister. Apparently this is part of the entire fuel tank and is a costly fix. This can be quite dangerous as the car will hesitate and stall even at highway speeds. It seems that this is a fairly common problem. The failure date was 09/05/11.
#5 - Tank Assembly problem of the 2006 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Chrysler 300c. After filling up gas tank to full (not overfilling - stop fueling once pump shuts off) and driving at slow speeds less than 5mph or at idle speed, car dies with no warning, engine light and oil light comes on. It takes several tries to re-start the car. Engine dies approximately 4+ times until it runs fine. This happens periodically, not everytime car is fueled up. I fill up at 1/2 tank twice a week. This incident occurs periodically - about once month. I have had the car die as I am crossing busy intersections, turning into a side road enought times that I have blocked traffic and have fear of being t-boned because the car diees without warning in the middle of crossing a street or when making a turn. This problem occurred on March 3, 2010.
#6 - Tank Assembly problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The car involved is a 2005 Chrysler 300c. Early build 2005 300c with low miles purchased used 3/11. Driven primarily as a highway car recently we started use more in town. I had read all the various problems had with windows (not working) and pulling to the right and had both of those issues but not the engine stall issue until October. I read about not filling one ounce beyond when the pump shuts off but my observation is even that now is too much. Whenever the car is filled up, it will stall/shut down 3-6 times in the next 2-3 miles of city driving. No stutter, just shuts down completely. I've tried shifting to neutral and racing the engine when pulling up to stop signs to keep it from stalling, with limited success. Not that I am recommending that but better than dying when you expect it to accelerate. A somewhat similar experience when getting onto the on-ramp but more of a stutter situation than actually stalling. From what I've read it is too much gas getting into the engine via emissions hose from tank so computer does not compensate with more air (engine racing would be the result) so it floods out as in choking out a lawn mower from decades ago to get it to stop running. I've owned 50 cars and this is the most dangerous vehicle I've ever owned because of this reason. Even knowing it is likely to happen does not help so I won't let anyone else drive the car. . . . If they were to make a left hand turn in traffic after filling the tank it would be a fireball waiting to happen. It's a very nice car to drive once you get the steering (cradle shift and weird camber settings) accomplished but we are leaving it pretty much only for highway driving and manually calculating how much gas has been used and so as to leave the tank 2-3 gallons short of full when filling it up. Pain in the rear to be sure but better than making a left turn in front of someone and having the engine die. . . Along with you. It was Oct. 1, 2010 when this tank assembly issue happened.
#7 - Tank Assembly problem of the 2007 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 Chrysler 300c. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Chrysler 300c is 2C3KA63H07_. I was traveling north on I-95 at 70 mph in south carolina. Fuel gauge indicated 1/4 tank of gas and over 100 miles to empty. The obd light came on and the car slowed down (5-10 mph). I was able to roll it off the road onto the right shoulder. Gas gauge indicated a 1/4 tank of fuel. I turned the ignition off and sat for15 minutes. When I attempted to start the vehicle, it acted as though it had no gas. However, the gauge showed a 1/4 tank full. Vehicle was towed (aaa) to an exxon station in gable, SC. Fuel was added to the tank and the car could be started. The addition of $25. 00 of fuel (6 gallons?) did not move the gauge from the 1/4 tank level. An additional $25 fueling brought the gauge almost up to full. I drove it roughly 500 miles from SC to MD without incident. However, I did not allow fuel level to drop below 1/2. This tank assembly issue occurred 08/05/2011.

The dealer stated the failure was due to a vent valve sensor inside the fuel tank that was causing the problem. The dealer stated the fuel tank would need to be replaced as well as the char coal canister. The failure mileage was 30,000 and the current mileage was 70,000. Updated 03/30/11. It was Mar. 10, 2009 when this tank assembly issue happened.
#9 - Tank Assembly problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The car involved is a 2005 Chrysler 300c. The VIN of this 300c is 2C3AA63H15_. Vehicle stalls repeatedly after fueling for approximately 35 miles and sometimes takes several attempts to restart. This is very dangerous and frightening because it is never known when or where the vehicle will leave you disabled. My car has stalled many, many times, on the road, at intersections, in the middle of intersection, at stop lights, on railroad tracks, on freeway on ramps and off ramps, parking lots, and anywhere else it so chooses. I talked to mechanics and I have done some research on this and it seems to be a problem with the flat top fuel tank design, requiring the fuel tank to be replaced, but I have yet to receive notice from the manufacturer about a recall. Please look into this matter because I am concerned about the safety of myself, my family, and other 300c owners. Please help and thank you for your time!. This tank assembly issue occurred Tue., Oct. 30, 2007.
#10 - Tank Assembly problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle having this issue was a 2005 Chrysler 300c. After filling the gas tank the car will stall when driving. This happens for several miles and while in traffic.

#11 - Tank Assembly problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The reporting person's vehicle is a 2005 Chrysler 300c. The contact stated that the vehicle would intermittently stall moments after being refueled. The failure occurred when the vehicle was refueled after having less than 1/2 a tank of gasoline, when driving at any speed and also when first starting the vehicle. The vehicle was not taken to have the failure diagnosed or repaired the VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage was 73,000 and the current mileage was 77,000. It was 08/01/2008 when this tank assembly issue happened.
#12 - Tank Assembly problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The car involved is a 2005 Chrysler 300c. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 2C3JA63H85_. When I fill up the gas tank the car stalls after 1-2 minutes. Restart and stalls again. Goes on for first 10 miles after refill. This happens after every fill up. Only way to prevent is to fill tank at 80% or less. Checked the internet (Chrysler 300c stalling) and I find several people reporting the exact same problem. Clearly a manufacturing problem that can lead to some serious accidents. This tank assembly problem happened on Jul. 1, 2010.
#13 - Tank Assembly problem of the 2005 Chrysler 300C
The vehicle was a 2005 Chrysler 300c. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 2C3AA63H05_. After refueling normally, vehicle stalls randomly and without warning for approximately the next 10-20 miles driven. Chrysler internet forum members cite a bad valve in the fuel emissions system and the corrective measure is to replace the entire fuel tank for a cost of $700. I think this should be covered by Chrysler under the federal emissions warranty and because the vehicle stalls without warning, it can be quite dangerous, there should be a recall. This problem occurred on Thu., May. 19, 2011.
