Chrysler Pacifica owners have reported 30 problems related to other fuel system tank assembly (under the other fuel system category).
My vehicle is having the same issue as the recall. I contacted Chrysler on July 30 2014. And was told that my VIN was not apart of the recall. I told them my vehicle is stalling as im going over 50mph my gas tank goes from half full to empty and the e light turns on. If I don't rush to the gas station my car will die as if it had no fuel left. ( leaving me stranded on the side of the road. With my children ). When I do put gas in its very slow and I have to hold the bar back on the gas pump itself or my car will turn the pump handle off. My rmp jumps up and down as im accelerating. It feels like my engine is hesitating. My gas pedal gets stuck while driving and I have to tap it with my foot to unstick it. How is this even safe. To recall some and not others. I'm a stay at home mother to 3 boys under the age of 5 years old. I read online the horror stories of people with the same problem and year make model everything and Chrysler is not doing anything to fix the problem. Please help me fix this problem before me and my children and everyone else before a serious accident is to happen. As of right now my car is state inspected. But I do not feel safe driving it anymore I so not want to risk the safety of my children's lives.

My car failed on us as we were on our trip towards brownsville texas. The electrical in my car started flickering and the motor kept accelerating itself. . Then the gas indicator went from showing half tank full to 10 miles to empty. . We were in the deserted part of the checkpoint ranch so we had about 30 miles until a gas station we thought we couldn't possibly just run out of gas, but as we continued 5 minutes later our car electrical just sounded a spark and our car starting shutting off, hard steering to pull on side of road. . But thank god we had no vehicles behind us so that prevented an accident from happening. . We called family member to go help us haul our car to a nearest gas station or mechanic. . Something I never want to experience with my children 3 and 1 in my car and the hot summer. . I have searched for my car if it falls in the recall category but it shows nothing. . Yet it showed to have similar defects as the ones being recalled.

While turning into the bank parking lot at 10mph the car just stalled. I was unable to brake or steer out the way. When gas gauge reads empty I am unable to fill the tank with gas as it begins to spill back out. Gas gauge reads 1/2 full when it is really empty? miles to empty sensor incorrect therefore I have no idea when I need gas. Driver side exterior headlamp seems dimmer than the other lamp. After repairing the entire front end(suspension) still sounds like the front end is going to fall apart when driving on ohio roads. Felt it was necessary to document as I do not feel safe in this car.
Driving home on highway with three children in the car. Gas gauge suddenly drops from1/2 tank to empty and car stalls immediately on the highway. I am towed to a gas station where I try to put gas into the tank and am only able to put a gallon or two in at a time as if the tank were full. Past 6 months, the gas gauge is inconsistent, drops from 1/2 to empty and am unable to put more than a gallon or two in at a time. Mechanics as well as myself contact Chrysler who claim that they don't know what the problem could be. I look on-line and see that Pacifica's have been recalled for this exact problem. I ask that you look into how my Pacifica is different from the ones that have been recalled. It is the same year as others that have been recalled and is doing the exact same thing as those on the recall list.

Car will not take gas. Gas pump between tanks is not working properly to move the fuel from one side to the other, causing you to run out of gas frequently. It also is causing the mileage/computer/gas gague to indicate you have a half tank and then immediately drop to e and run out. This seems to be an issue with the mercedes designed fuel tank and should be recalled and replaced with a standard design. When on e your car will not take gas. Initially I was told to idle at the pump for 2-5 minutes. . . Now at 10 minutes, my car will not take gas and takes about 20-30 minutes to try to fill it. Very frustrated.

My 2006 Pacifica will go from a half a tank of fuel to no fuel in a matter of minutes. This has left us stranded on the side of the road a number of times, sometimes in very dangerous places with my two children in the car. The saddle tank is a very bad design, with the transfer pump. When we are stranded on the road side, if you crawl under the car one side of the tank is hollow empty and the other side is completely full, yet we are waiting on someone to bring us gas. When you try to refuel the car it will only take 3 or 4 gallons before the pump shuts off. To finish you have to almost trickly the gas in the very top of the filler tube. I have contacted Chrysler about this problem and they told me that mine was the first complaint they had heard about this, I can't believe that, after reading all the online complaints about the 06 Pacificas. My dealership can tell me anything that will for sure fix all the problems. I dont want to pay for all the guessing work, when so many other Pacifica owner are having the same problems. 8tt.
I own a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica. I am having a major issue with the fuel gauge. The gauge shows 1/2 full and then the next thing you know is that it drops to empty and you run out of gas. I took the car to the dealership over a month ago and was told that the parts would be in a few days. This issue is dangerous as you run out of gas without a method of knowing what is going on. In addition, when you attempt to fill the tank with gas, it continues to pop avoiding you from putting gas in the car. I can take up to 30 minutes to force 1/2 tank of gas in the car to where the gauge will show the car full.
I have a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica touring edition awd with approximately 48,000 miles. This past week, my vehicle started stalling at stops. After my spouse took it to a car repair facility, they could not find any codes. She stated she had 1/2 tank of fuel showing. I had to rent a trailer to pick the vehicle up and drop it off at the dealer. When I started the vehicle the fuel gauge went from 1/2 to empty. I dropped it off at the dealer and they performed the repairs for the stalling problem. When I picked up the car, the service technician told me they had to put $10 dollars of fuel in it cause it was showing empty and that the tank low fuel light was on. According to the trip indication of fuel mileage, it said I had 18 miles until empty. I started the car and the fuel gauge went to 1/2 tank! okay problem here!! I had the technician put it back on diagnostic and showed no codes and fuel quantity was at 18 miles left according to the computer. I went straight to the gas station and attempted to fill the tank, it only took 6. 73 gallons and would not take any more. I called the dealer and they said it was the tank sending units (2ea) that would have to be replaced. Looking at other complaints, we all have a problem with this model and year.
First noticed gas gage suddenly dropped from 3/4 tank to empty, low fuel warning and check engine light came on. Fuel gage would again rise up to full then drop to empty. Called dealer who asked for my VIN number and told me my car was not subject to recall. Gas gage is no longer functioning at all & I have no idea how much gas I have in my tank - I'm unable at this point to afford the repair. New problem has arisen, yesterday and today my car has stalled, causing me to engage park and restart my engine. First time I was going up a small hill and this morning I was maneuvering around a round about. Seems very similar to other reports on this particular model and those who have registered a complaint.
I purchased my '04 Pacifica used with 44k miles on it. The day after buying the vehicle the fuel gauge dropped from half tank to completely empty then would bounce back to half full. It did it several more times and when I returned it to the local dealer it was purchased from they were unable to find any problems and there were no diagnostic codes set by this encounter. The vehicle when for a few weeks without having it happen again but I was sure to keep the tank nearly full. Yet within the last week it began doing it again with much more frequency. I did some on line research and came up with a recall on the sending units and when I called a Chrysler dealership asking about the recall and giving the service person my VIN I was told there was no info matching my VIN. So I went back to my purchasing dealer and when I brought the car in I was told that it was a fuel sensor and that it would be taken car of. So after having no use of my car for a few days I picked it up this evening thinking it was repaired and low and behold I was barely out of the dealers lot and the same fuel gauge issues are once again occurring. I find it hard to believe that my particular Pacifica isn't experiencing the same issues that are part of the recall info that I was able to get online. I feel that Chrysler is doing a disservice to it's customers by not taking care of this problem seeing as it appears to be a large scale problem from what I have been seeing online.
1. Driving on tropicana Ave going 30 mph when all the sudden I heard a knock sound and I started smelling fuel. I pulled over and inspected the vehicle an notices a small steel object sticking out of the gas tank and fuel was leaking all over the place. When I called the dealership I find out our warranty doesn't cover the repair, nor would they help in any way with a loaner car. All the money we spend to get slapped in the face with something that was in no way our fault. I figure any type of protection to the gas tank would have prevented this from happening, or even perhaps relocating the gas tank as it sits way to low to the ground as it is.
2005 Chrysler Pacifica has stalled 4 times. Each time the vehicle had been brought to a complete stop at a stop sign, then the vehicle stalled. Vehicle was put in park and restarted. I noticed that each time the vehicle had approximately 1/4 tank of gas or less. The last two times it stalled I put $7 of gas in the vehicle and the gas gauge showed 1/2 tank. Obviously this is not likely as it takes approximately $50 to fill the tank. After approximately 45 miles the gas tank gauge went from 1/2 tank to 1/8 tank in the blind of an eye. Also, vehicle was only getting approximately 200 miles for a full tank. Vehicle is currently at the dealership, however, at this point the dealership is saying that they cannot "recreate" the situation and have a call in to Chrysler to see if they can advise further.
Poping noises at front end on driver and passenger sides, while turning at slow speeds going forward and backing up. Also filled up gas tank, "mileage/guage till empty" was 344, drove one mile and it went to 243. It is currently in the shop again, they are waiting on a part "shaft" to replace it. They usually don't have old parts available because it is still under warranty.
I purchased this vehicle due to reports stating how safe it is. First problem will just stop running. There were no warnings or anything. It has done this on 8 times the first being two months after I purchased the vehicle. The dash board will just not turn on and the fog light indicator no longer comes on. The dealership replace something for a recall dealing with the gas tank and not my gas light continuously flashes on even though I have plenty of gas. The gas needle starts going up and down continuously then stops. This happens about twice a day. I feel I am stuck with a lemon because each time the dealer tells me that they can't find anything and to being it back if it acts up again. I have a very busy life.
