Chrysler Town & Country owners have reported 9 problems related to fuel hoses lines/piping and fittings (under the gasoline fuel system category).
After fueling vehicle where tank is filled (to first click off, no more) the car stalls a short while after leaving the gas station if you have to stop, or slow dramatically( stops, turns etc. , shortly after filling,(normally within 5 min. Or less) for traffic, lights, etc. This problem is caused by a valve failure in the gas tank allowing the vapor recovery line to fill with gas which at a preselected time opens into the intake system and when at low speeds, or stops floods the engine with raw gas causing the stall. When being able to continue accelerate you still feel a definite bog in the engine when this happens, although it does not stall. The engine normally restarts, but that would not help much if you stalled in approaching traffic or such. I also own a 2003 Dodge caravan with 100k+ miles and it has done it for a couple of years starting at around 85k same symptoms as 2007 van. I was wondering if there are any recalls or other complaints on this. Very dangerous in the right circumstance. Chrysler says part is not repairable other than by changing to fuel tank completely, my cost on the tank with me repairing it is $900. 00. Sure like to see them fix both of mine and I also own a 2006 t&c so I am waiting for it to start as in has a little over 92k so I guess its done good to get there without a problem. A google search reveals more people have had this problem also, and is how I figured out the cause. Thanks for any help.

I replaced the fuel filter about 6 months ago and put about 6 months ago. We were going to church and the van quit on me. I pulled off to the side of the road and could smell gas. Gas was leaking almost onto the muffler. This could have been catastrophic. The fuel line shouldn't be running so close to the exhaust line. I thank god that the van didn't catch on fire.

I own a 1998 Chrysler Town & Country lx. Corrosion of fuel filler tube caused a fuel leak and the filler tube had to be replaced. Fortunately there was no fire or injury. I was told by my mechanic and the auto salvage firms I contacted that this is a common issue with these minivans.

The vehicle was driven to a local independent repair shop. The mechanic determined the hose had come off of the fuel tank.
