    Stalling after fill-ups

    I've had this problem where the car will stall out after filling up with gas. It usually goes on for about 2-3 miles when I'm in stop and go traffic right after filling. Someone said before that it was the vapor canister and not to overfill or top off the tank, which I never do by the way. When the pump handle clicks, I'm done.

    Is there anything I can check for, or do, to fix this problem? Someone mentioned to drive with the gas cap off for a bit, but that didnt help.

    I've read about this once before... I believe the guy ended up having the tank replaced by Chrysler under warranty and didn't have any more problems. Not sure what part of the tank was bad though.

    My brother's '05 does it too. He just keeps it from filling all the way up, though that seems like a real PITA to me.

    Yes, this has been discussed quite a lot, I would do a search.

    IIRC, crazy_luck went through this, maybe PM him and see what the resolution was.

    Are you squeezing in more then you should?? If so chances are thats your problem.

    Never fill more then when it clicks. I believe it overflow into the evap canister. open the gas cap and let her run. That happend to me once i never did it again and no prob since.

    fuel control valve {part of fuel tank) is allowing raw liquid fuel to enter the evaporative emissions control system (canister). when the DCPS (duty cycle purge solenoid) is activated, the engine ingests all this extra fuel and causes an extremely rich condition which the PCM cannot compensate for, hence the stalling. once this extra fuel is processed, engine should run normally. only fix i know for this issue is fuel tank replacement.

    I never top off my tank, and after the pump handle clicks once, that's it, I dont put anymore in. Should I not fill it up all the way then?

    My Mag has only 17K miles, but is over her 3-year mark. Do you think the dealer would still cover a gas tank replacement?

    Also, CAI & headers are going in soon, will this help minimize the effects my problem?

    My problem was completely different - it won't let me fill the tank full, it just keeps shutting the pump off when I get to 7/8ths full, but it was fine all summer and now that cooler air is back I'm having the issue again.

    Also, CAI & headers are going in soon, will this help minimize the effects my problem? those mods will have no effect on this concern.

    Well, I filled up again today, but I stopped before the gas pump clicked off, leaving it a bit shy of full I guess, and it didnt have the stalling out problem. My fuel gauge showed a needle-width below 1/4 and I put 15 gallons in it. I guess I'll fill up this way from now on.

    I do have to add though, that my Mag was hit in the driver-side rear-quarter before, and was fixed. Maybe something in the fuel tank system was bent or moved out of place because of that, and is probably the cause. Although, the problem didnt manifest itself until way after the incident.

    although it may be a result of the accident, good luck proving it after all this time.

    you might have some sediment in your tank getting stirred up with fill ups, after it settles your good. Had that happen with a truck I have.
