ENGINE

1/29/2018 - AUGUSTA, GA
AFTER FILLING UP, MY CAR ENGINE STALLS. I TOOK IT TO THE MECHANIC AND WAS TOLD CHRYSLER KNOWS ABOUT IT. I LOOKED IT UP ON YOUR SITE AND INDEED FOUND PE13016 BUT DISAGREE WITH THE FINDING BEING THAT IT IS A LOW SAFETY ISSUE. THIS HAS HAPPENED MULTIPLE TIMES WHERE I WOULD BE IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC AND THE ENGINE STALLS AND SHUTS OFF AND THE STEERING LOCKS UP WHERE I CAN'T STEER THE CAR WHATSOEVER. THE MECHANIC TOLD ME THAT IT WAS DUE TO A FUEL VAPOR LOCK IN WHICH THE EVAP VALVE STAYS OPEN AND DUE TO IT, THE ENGINE RUNS RICH BECAUSE OF THE FUEL. I WAS TOLD NOT TO OVERFILL IN WHICH I HAVE STOPPED, HOWEVER, THIS HAPPENS JUST BY FILLING UP. I HAVE HAD TO REV THE ENGINE TO BURN OFF GAS UNTIL THE ENGINE STOPS STALLING. EVERY TIME, I'VE STOPPED TRAFFIC IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD AND IT HAS HAPPENED AT NIGHT AS WELL WHERE VISIBILITY IS LOW AND ALMOST GOT HIT BECAUSE MY CAR STALLED. IT HAS ALSO HAPPENED RIGHT BEFORE TURNING IN A BUSY INTERSECTION AND THANKFUL THAT IT HAPPENED RIGHT BEFORE I MADE THE TURN. EVERY TIME IT HAS HAPPENED I'VE BEEN IN MOTION ON A CITY STREET AND A FEW TIMES ON A HIGHWAY BUT EVERY TIME I WAS ABOUT TO TURN. THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED, I DIDN'T KNOW AND GOT THE TOW TRUCK TO TOW THE CAR AND HAD THE POLICE TO COME BEHIND ME BECAUSE IN HIS WORDS, I WAS IN AN UNSAFE LOCATION, SO THAT NO OTHER ONCOMING VEHICLES WOULD HIT ME. THE DATE THAT I PLACED ON WHEN IT HAPPENED IS THE LAST DATE IT HAS HAPPENED THUS FAR AS OF THIS WRITING.

THERE IS SOMETHING GOING ON WITH THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM WHICH CAUSES THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER TO COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN AND LIGHTS TO FLICKER WHEN DRIVING. USUALLY HAPPENS WHEN CAR HEATER IS ON OR DRIVING FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. I HAVE A VIDEO OF THE ISSUE AND SHOWED IT TO CERRITOS DODGE SERVICE DEPARTMENT BUT THEY DIDNT ACKNOWLEDGE ISSUE.
