AFTER REFILLING THE GAS TANK, THE ENGINE STALLED SEVERAL TIMES WITH "BUCKING". THE TANK WAS NOT OVERFILLED. AFTER ABOUT 5 MILES AND SEVERAL STALLS, THE CONDITION WENT AWAY AND DID NOT REOCCUR UNTIL I GASSED UP AT A DIFFERENT STATION TWO WEEKS LATER. AGAIN THE TANK WAS NOT OVERFILLED. INTERNET SEARCH INDICATES THAT THIS IS BEING INVESTIGATED AS PE13-016. PRIOR TO THIS THERE HAS BEEN NO SIMILAR INCIDENTS. OTHERS HAVE HAD SIMILAR ISSUES.

AFTER FILLING GAS TANK COMPLETELY, CAR STARTED STALLING GOING DOWN THE ROAD. CONTINUED TO STALL AT STOP LIGHT AND IN PARKING LOT AND WOULD NOT STAY RUNNING UNLESS HITTING THE GAS PEDAL. PROBLEM SEEMED TO RESOLVE ITSELF AFTER A FEW MILES. SAME EXACT ISSUE HAS HAPPENED MULTIPLE TIMES OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS, BUT ONLY WHEN FILLING THE GAS TANK COMPLETELY. WHEN ONLY PUTTING PARTIAL AMOUNT INTO TANK, THIS ISSUE DOES NOT SEEM TO BE AN ISSUE. HAVE DONE RESEARCH ONLINE AND IT SEEMS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE 2006 CHARGER AND 2 OTHER CHRYSLER MODELS. SPOKE WITH FIRESTONE IN COLUMBUS GA AND WAS ADVISED THERE WAS A SERVICE BULLETIN REGARDING THIS ISSUE AND THAT MY GAS TANK NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. CONTACTED A DODGE DEALERSHIP IN COLUMBUS GA OVER 2 MONTHS AGO AND WAS ADVISED FUEL TANK IS ON NATIONAL BACK ORDER.

IN JUNE 2013 I STARTED EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS WITH THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND THE VEHICLE INTERMITTENTLY SHUTTING OFF. TOOK VEHICLE TO SEVERAL DIFFERENT DODGE MECHANIC AND WAS ADVISED THEY COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM AND JUST NOT FILL THE GAS TANK TO FULL WHEN ADDING FULL. THIS WENT ON SEVERAL MONTHS AND AFTER SPENDING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FOR "PROBLEMS" NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS ISSUE I TOOK TO A NEIGHBORHOOD MECHANIC WHO AFTER HAVING THE VEHICLE FOR SEVERAL MONTHS DETERMINED IT NEEDED A NEW THROTTLE SWITCH (DIDN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM) AND FINALLY REBUILDING THE COMPUTER. THIS HELPED THE PROBLEM A LITTLE AS THE STALLING OUT ONLY HAPPENED INFREQUENTLY. HOWEVER, RECENTLY THE PROBLEM IS REOCCURRING MORE FREQUENTLY.

2006 DODGE CHARGER R/T DAYTONA. I NOTICED A LURCH IN THE VEHICLE YESTERDAY AS I WAS COMING HOME FROM WORK AS WELL AS THE SPEAKERS TURNING OFF/ON. THIS MORNING AS THE VEHICLE WAS IDLING AT A STOP LIGHT, THE DASHBOARD TURNED OFF, VEHICLE CHIMED AND ALL GAGES WENT TO ZERO, BUT THE VEHICLE WAS STILL RUNNING AND WAS ABLE TO ACCELERATE WITHOUT DISPLAYING ANY INDICATION ON GAGES. AFTER ABOUT 10-15 SECONDS, GAGES RETURNED TO NORMAL AS IF THE VEHICLE HAD RESTARTED. HAPPENED TWICE WITHIN 20 MIN WHILE VEHICLE WAS IDLING IN TRAFFIC. NEVER DID IT SEEM THAT THE ENGINE HAD SHUT DOWN.
