FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

8/15/2013 - STRATHAM, NH
MINUTES AFTER FILLING MY TANK WITH GAS, I DROVE LESS THAN A MILE AND TURNED INTO A PARKING LOT. I WAS STILL DRIVING, AROUND 15 MPH, WHEN I HEARD A DING, AND IMMEDIATELY NOTICED A LOSS OF STEERING CONTROL. I PRESSED THE BRAKE AND QUICKLY NOTICED A LOSS OF BRAKING AS WELL. IT WAS THEN I REALIZED THE CAR HAD STALLED WHILE I WAS STILL MOVING! THANKFULLY I HAD NO ONE AROUND AND WAS ON A STRAIGHT STRETCH WHERE I COULD SLOWLY COME TO A STOP, PUT IT IN PARK AND RESTART. I PULLED INTO A PARKING SPACE, AND THE CAR PROCEEDED TO STALL OUT 2 MORE TIMES JUST SITTING THERE. THERE WAS NO WARNING SYMPTOMS AHEAD OF TIME - PERFECTLY SMOOTH IDLE AT THE CORRECT RPM, THEN IT JUST DROPS TO 0 AS IF THE KEY WERE TURNED OFF. I RAN INTO THE STORE FOR LESS THAN 2 MINUTES, CAME OUT AND DROVE HOME. I HAVEN'T SEEN ANY PROBLEMS SINCE THEN (THIS HAPPENED LESS THAN 24 HOURS AGO). THERE WERE NO CODES THROWN. I'VE OWNED THIS CAR SINCE '07 WHEN IT HAD 5K MILES ON IT. WITH A LITTLE OVER 88K MILES I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS HAPPEN BEFORE. NEEDLESS TO SAY IF THIS HAPPENED IN TRAFFIC IT WOULD BE HIGHLY DANGEROUS. NOTE: THIS IS A 2006 DAYTONA R/T. EARLY MANUFACTURE DATE OF 9/22/2005.

AFTER FILLING MY CAR UP AT A GAS STATION I WAS ENTERING THE FREEWAY AND MY CAR SPUTTERED AND STALLED ON ME ON THE ON RAMP TO THE FREEWAY. I WAS ALMOST REAR ENDED AND THE CAR LOCKED UP AND IT WAS DIFFICULT TO STEER. FURTHER DIAGNOSES FROM THE DEALERSHIP SHOWED THAT THE EVAP VALVE WAS BAD ON THE CAR AND NEEDED A NEW GAS TANK. APPARENTLY THIS PROBLEM IS HAPPENING WITH A LOT OF DODGE CHARGERS, MAGNUMS AND CHRYSLER 300'S.

8/9/2013 - LEBANON, MO
DROVE TO A BUSINESS AND ONCE PLACED IN PARK, THE GEAR SHIFT BECAME STUCK. CALLED AAA, THEY WERE GOING TO TOW IT, THEN ANOTHER DRIVER SHOWED UP FOR AAA AND KNEW JUST WHAT TO DO. HE TAKES APART THE CASE THAT GOES AROUND THE GEAR SHIFT AND PRESSES ON A PINK COLORED EMERGENCY PARK RELEASE LEVER, ( WHY IS THAT EVEN AN OPTION??!!! ) IT WAS OBVIOUSLY NOT ATTACHED TO ANY THING AS IT FELL DOWN INTO THE SPACE AROUND THE SHIFTER AND STILL RESIDES THERE. THE DISCUSSION OF TOWING IT CAME UP AGAIN, THEN WE NOTICED A CABLE ATTACHED TO THE SHIFTER AND AFTER PLAYING WITH IT HAVE DEVELOPED A SYSTEM TO UNLATCH IT FROM PARK. YOU HAVE TO PULL THE CABLE TO THE LEFT WITH A PEN TO DISABLE THE GEAR SHIFT. TODAY I TOOK IT TO WHERE I BOUGHT IT AND THEY TOLD ME THERE WAS A RECALL ON THIS AND TO TAKE IT TO THE DODGE DEALERSHIP. THE DODGE DEALERSHIP KNEW JUST WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT, BUT DENIES A RECALL ON THIS. I AM SCHEDULED TO HAVE IT FIXED MONDAY THE 12TH. I DON'T FEEL I SHOULD HAVE TO KEEP PAYING FOR FAULTY EQUIPMENT, THIS CAR HAS BEEN A DISASTER SINCE I BOUGHT IT. THE FRONT END HAS BEEN FIXED ABOUT 4 TIMES FOR VIGOROUSLY SHAKING AND A GOD AWFUL RATTLING NOISE ( GOES AWAY FOR A SHORT TIME THEN RETURNS SHORTLY AFTER BEING FIXED!!), NUMEROUS TIRES HAVE BEEN BOUGHT BECAUSE THAT MUST BE THE PROBLEM TOO ( OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF THE DEALERSHIP), THE TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT STAYS ON, THE ABS LIGHT SYSTEM MALFUNCTIONS AND HAS LEFT ME WITH A NO BRAKE SENSATION ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS. I HAVE ALWAYS OWNED DODGES, BUT NEXT TIME I PURCHASE A VEHICLE IT WONT BE A DODGE.

FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

8/7/2013 - SUNMAN, IN
AFTER REFUELING, THE CAR STALLED UPON MODERATE ACCELERATION. I THOUGHT IT WAS A ONE TIME ISSUE, BUT TOOK IT TO A DODGE DEALERSHIP AFTER THE THIRD INCIDENT. THEY COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG WITH THE CAR. AFTER EXTENSIVE RESEARCH ONLINE, I FOUND THAT THE PROBLEM IS APPARENTLY WITH A PURGE SOLENOID VALVE THAT CANNOT BE REPLACED WITHOUT THE ENTIRE GAS TANK BEING REPLACED, AS WELL AS THE EVAP CANISTER. THE CAR HAS BEEN DOING THIS MORE AND MORE FREQUENTLY, ALMOST TO THE POINT OF DOING IT EVERY FILL UP. IF IT DOESN'T STALL WHEN THE ENGINE IS RESTARTED, IT DOES IT RANDOMLY WITHIN A FEW MINUTES OF DRIVING. EITHER WHILE ACCELERATING, OR CRUISING. THIS IS A LARGE SAFETY ISSUE, AS MY WIFE DRIVES THIS CAR INTO THE CITY OF CINCINNATI FOR WORK, AND THE CAR HAS STALLED AFTER SHE REFUELS. WE ARE NOT LEAVING THE ENGINE RUNNING DURING REFUELING, AND WE ARE NOT TOPPING OFF THE TANK. I HAVE DONE RESEARCH ONLINE AND IT APPEARS TO BE HAPPENING TO SEVERAL PEOPLE. THIS PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED SPORADICALLY ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS, AND I HAVE BARELY AVOIDED CRASHING A FEW TIMES WHEN THE CAR STALLED WHILE I WAS TURNING. THE CAR IS A 2006 DODGE CHARGER R/T WITH THE 5.7L HEMI ENGINE.

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

8/6/2013 - LOS ANGELES, CA
AFTER FILLING UP MY GAS TANK WITH FUEL I DROVE MY CAR ABOUT 16 MILES AND IT STALLED OUT, I PUT IT IN NEUTRAL AND IT DID START BACK UP. NEXT DAY I TOOK MY CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP AND MY ADVISER ASKED ME IF I TOPPED OFF MY TANK AFTER FILLING UP AND I SAID YES, SO HE TOLD ME NOT TO DO THAT BECAUSE THE 06 MODEL CHARGERS HAVE A DEFECT WITH THE GAS TANKS THAT CAUSE'S THE CAR TO STALL OUT AFTER TOPPING IT OFF. I TOOK HIS ADVISE AND MY CAR DIDN'T STALL OUT FOR ABOUT 7 MONTH'S. ON 08/01/13 I FILLED UP MY GAS TANK WITHOUT TOPPING IT OFF, GOT ON THE HIGHWAY DROVE ABOUT 16 MILES AGAIN AND EXITED, AS I WAS MAKING A LEFT TURN THE CAR STALLED OUT AGAIN AND IT DID THAT TWO MORE TIMES AS I WAS DRIVING IT TO THE DEALERSHIP. THIS TIME MY ADVISER TOLD ME TO ONLY FILL UP 3/4 OF A TANK.THE COST FOR THIS REPAIR IS RIDICULOUS AND THE CUSTOMERS WHO PAID 30K TO 45K FOR THESE CARS SHOULD NOT BE STUCK WITH THE BILL. THERE SHOULD BE A URGENT RECALL ON ALL OF THESE CARS BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT OR TURN'S INTO ROAD KILL ON THE HIGHWAY.
