Summary of Complaint

EVERY TIME AFTER I FILL THE GAS TANK, I START THE ENGINE, IT RUNS FINE FOR 1-2 MIN. THEN BEGINS TO BUCK AND JOLT LIKE IT WANTS TO SHUT OFF. I'VE EVEN HAD THE ENGINE COMPLETELY SHUT OFF WHILE ON THE HIGHWAY. I'M VERY CONCERNED THAT A SERIOUS ACCIDENT COULD OCCUR DUE TO THE UNEXPECTED LOSS OF POWER RENDERING MY STEERING AND BRAKES INOPERABLE. THIS BEHAVIOR OF THE ENGINE SHUT OFF DOES NOT OCCUR AGAIN UNTIL THE NEXT TIME I FILL UP MY GAS TANK. I'VE FOUND INFORMATION THAT THIS PROBLEM IS DUE TO A FAULTY VAPOR/LIQUID SEPARATOR VALVE LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THE FUEL TANK.

Summary of Complaint

AFTER REFUELING THE VEHICLE WILL SPUTTER AND DIE CAUSING LOSS OF STEERING AND PROPULSION. THIS CAUSES A GRAVE SAFETY PROBLEM AS IT USUALLY OCCURS WHILE PULLING OUT IN AN INTERSECTION PUTTING THE DRIVER AND ALL PASSENGERS AT RISK. THIS OCCURS FOR THE FIRST FEW MILES AFTER FUELING AND DOES NOT OCCUR AGAIN TILL THE NEXT FILL UP. I AM WILLING TO DEMONSTRATE THIS FOR A NHTSA INSPECTOR IF THE ARE WILLING TO INVESTIGATE THIS SAFETY ISSUE AS I SEE SEVERAL OTHERS ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. JUST SEARCH GOOGLE.

Summary of Complaint

A MECHANIC TOLD ME THAT THE OVERFLOW VALVE IS PROBABLY THE PROBLEM,. HE STATED THAT WHEN FILING UP WITH GAS, IT IS NOT SHUTTING OFF THE NOZZLE FLOW IN TIME, AND ALTHOUGH IT ISN'T SPILLING GAS ON THE GROUND IT IS WETTING THE CANISTER. HE SAYS THAT THROWS OFF THE AIR-GAS CALCULATIONS UNTIL THE CANISTER DRIES, 1-4 MINS AFTER RUNNING. IN THE MEANTIME, IT SHUTTERS HARD AND/OR STALLS MULTIPLE TIMES, EVEN WHILE DRIVING. HIS RECOMMENDATION WAS TO LIVE WITH IT AND JUST MANUALLY FILL UP A LITTLE UNDER FULL. THIS IS BECAUSE THE VALVE CAN'T BE REPLACED W/O REPLACING THE ENTIRE TANK.

Summary of Complaint

ON 09/17/13 AT 0858 HOURS, I WAS DRIVING MY 2007 JEEP PATRIOT ON THE I-17 FRONTAGE ROAD WHEN THE VEHICLE BEGAN TO LOSE POWER STEERING. PRIOR TO THE LOSS OF POWER, I WAS TRAVELING NORTHBOUND ON AN EVEN CONCRETE SURFACE AT APPROXIMATELY 50 MPH IN NORMAL TRAFFIC CONDITIONS. WHEN THE VEHICLE BEGAN TO "ACT UP," THE LIGHT FOR MY ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL TURNED ON AND THE ESC BECAME ACTIVE AND MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT BEGAN TO BLINK AMBER. DUE TO ESC, MY VEHICLE WAS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO CONTROL (ONCE AGAIN THIS WAS ON AN EVEN, PAVED SURFACE WITH NO CONDITIONS REQUIRING THE ESC TO ACTIVATE). ALONG WITH THE ESC BECOMING ACTIVE, MY VEHICLE BEGAN TO STALL AND LOSE POWER. MY ENGINE WOULD PEAK AT A MERE 2000K RPM AND AT ABOUT TWENTY MILES PER HOUR. THANKFULLY I WAS ONLY ON A FRONTAGE ROAD AND WAS ABLE TO QUICKLY PULL INTO AN INDUSTRIAL AREA, HOWEVER, IF I WAS ON I-17 (WHICH DOES NOT HAVE A SHOULDER) I WOULD HAVE BEEN IN GREAT DANGER. ONCE STOPPED, I HAD TO STOP/START MY ENGINE FOUR TIMES FOR THE ESC AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TO DEACTIVATE. ONCE THEY DID THE VEHICLE OPERATED NORMALLY. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO JEEP DEALERSHIP IN NORTH PHOENIX TO SEE WHAT WAS WRONG WITH THE VEHICLE. THEY ADVISED IT RETURNED A "TORQUE REQUEST SIGNAL DENIED" HISTORICAL CODE FOR WHEN THE INCIDENT OCCURRED, WHICH "DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE." I BELIEVE THE ABOVE INCIDENT IS RELATED TO TWO EVENTS THAT HAPPEN ON 9/14/13. DURING TWO SEPARATE RIGHT TURNS THE VEHICLE BEGAN TO STALL THROUGH A TURN ONLY TO JOLT AND REGAIN POWER. *JB

THERE WERE EVEN TIMES WHEN IT WOULD NOT START THE FIRST TIME. ONE DAY, LITERALLY ABOUT 0.5 MILES AFTER EXITING THE FREEWAY, THE RPMS WENT UP AND DOWN CHAOTICALLY AND THE CAR BEGAN TO COME TO A STOP. LUCKILY, I WAS ABLE TO COAST OVER ONTO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND CALL FOR ASSISTANCE. AND GOOD THING I WAS NO LONGER ON THE FREEWAY. MY CAR WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER. THEY LOOKED AT IT AND SAID A WIRE TO THE STARTER NEEDED TO BE REPLACED, AS WELL AS THE BATTERY. THEY REPLACED THE SOLENOID WIRE TO STARTER AND I PURCHASED A NEW BATTERY. *TR

I TOOK MY CAR TO A RELATIVE TO CHECK MY CAR SINCE NOTHING WAS REALLY GETTING RESOLVED AT THE DEALER. ONCE MY CAR WAS TURNED OFF IT WOULD NOT RESTART. MY CAR WAS EXAMINED AND THE WIRE THEY REPLACED WAS NOT PLACED BACK INTO THE PROTECTIVE CASING AND WAS SLIGHTLY CHARRED. IN ADDITION, THE STARTER WAS BURNT OUT AND NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THE CORE WAS KEPT BY THE AUTO PART STORE THE NEW ONE WAS PURCHASED FROM. THE DEALERSHIP SAID REPLACEMENT OF MY STARTER WOULD NOT BE COVERED UNDER WARRANTY. IT WAS VERY SURPRISING THE STARTER HAD TO BE REPLACED JUST AFTER 3 YEARS. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THIS HAS HAPPENED TWICE NOW IN 3 DAYS. AFTER FULLY FILLING MY FUEL TANK AND THEN DRIVING AWAY FROM THE PUMP MY JEEP PATRIOT STALLS BEFORE I HIT 3/10 OF A MILE FROM THE GAS STATION. CONTRARY TO SOME OTHER REPORTS OF THIS ISSUE, THAT I HAVE READ, AS WELL AS THE EXPLANATION OF THE ISSUE POSTED ON THE NHTSA WEBSITE, FROM FCA, THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN ONLY AT IDLE. RATHER IT HAPPENS WHILE I AM DRIVING. WHEN MY JEEP STALLS I ALSO LOSE THE ABILITY TO FULLY STEER (CAN ONLY TURN THE WHEEL APPX 1/4 TURN) AND BRAKING DOES NOT WORK AS WELL AS IT NORMALLY DOES. WHEN IT HAPPENED TODAY I ENDED UP MOUNTING A CURB AND SIDEWALK IN A RESIDENTIAL AREA. THE STREET I WAS ON WAS TURNING BUT I COULDN'T TURN WITH IT. IF I HAD NOT ENGAGED THE EMERGENCY/PARKING BRAKE I WOULD HAVE DRIVEN THROUGH A CHAIN LINK FENCE AND INTO A HOME. ONCE I RESTARTED MY JEEP AND BACKED OFF OF THE CURB THE ENGINE STALLED AGAIN WHILE MY JEEP WAS IN MOTION. LUCKILY I WAS BARELY MOVING AND ALREADY HAD MY HAND ON THE EMERGENCY/PARKING BRAKE. WHEN I RESTARTED MY JEEP THE NEXT TIME I REVVED THE ENGINE TO 3,000RPM FOR APPX 1 MINUTE WHILE MY JEEP WAS IN PARK. MY JEEP DID NOT STALL AFTER THAT FOR THE REST OF TODAY. TOMORROW MAY BE ANOTHER STORY. I SEE IN THIS FORM THERE IS THE ABILITY TO UPLOAD PHOTOS BUT I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS BEING AN EXISTING SAFETY ISSUE OR THE ABILITY TO REPORT IT BEFORE NOW. AS A RESULT THERE ARE NO PHOTOS OF MY JEEP ON A CURB ABOUT TO CRASH INTO SOMEONE'S HOUSE. WITH THE NUMBER OF REPORTS OF THIS ISSUE HAVING ALREADY BEEN MADE TO THE NHTSA I AM SHOCKED THAT A MANDATORY SAFETY RECALL WAS NOT DEMANDED.

Summary of Complaint

UPON EACH COMPLETE FILL-UP WITH GASOLINE, SHORTLY AFTER DRIVING OFF FROM FUELING, THE VEHICLE WILL BUCK SEVERELY, AND SHUT OFF. WHEN IT SHUTS OFF AND ROLLS TO A STOP, STEERING CONTROL AND POWER BRAKING IS LOST, AND YOU ARE AT THE MERCY OF ALL TRAFFIC AROUND YOU! THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE AROUND 2012. FROM COUNTLESS HOURS OF INVESTIGATION FROM OTHER OWNERS ON FORUMS, DISCUSSIONS WITH DEALERSHIP PERSONNEL, AS WELL AS MY OWN INDEPENDENT MECHANIC'S ELECTRONIC AND MECHANICAL ANALYSIS, THIS APPEARS TO BE A COMMON COMPLAINT AMONG PATRIOT & COMPASS OWNERS OF MULTIPLE PRODUCTION YEARS. THE ONLY WORK AROUND IS TO NOT FILL UP THE (ALREADY TINY) FUEL TANK COMPLETELY. THE MOST LIKELY ROOT CAUSE IS A MALFUNCTIONING FUEL TANK ROLL-OVER VALVE, WHICH ALLOWS RAW FUEL TO ENTER THE EVAP SYSTEM, AND UPON THE ECM ISSUING A "PURGE COMMAND," THE VEHICLE STALLS. COMPOUNDING THE SITUATION IS THAT THE ROLL-OVER VALVE IS NOT REPLACEABLE SEPARATELY FROM THE ENTIRE FUEL TANK ASSEMBLY. WITH THE VEHICLE BEING LONG OUT OF WARRANTY, THE COST OF A COMPLETE NEW FUEL TANK ASSEMBLY PLUS LABOR, IS PROHIBITIVE. THIS IS CLEARLY A SAFETY RELATED DEFECT THAT CHRYSLER DOES NOT WANT TO STAND BEHIND. I HAVE HAD SEVERAL CLOSE CALLS WHEN LEAVING GAS STATIONS, PULLING OUT INTO TRAFFIC AND NEARLY BEING REAR-ENDED WHEN THE VEHICLE STALLED. I IMAGINE IF NHTSA DOES NOT HOLD CHRYSLER ACCOUNTABLE FOR ALL OF THESE NON-CONFORMING VEHICLES, WHICH BY NOW ARE MOSTLY OUT OF WARRANTY, THE ONLY WAY TO GET CHRYSLER TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY, WOULD BE TO GET INTO AN ACCIDENT DUE TO THE STALLING ISSUE, AND THEN SUE THEM, ASSUMING I LIVED! THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. DEALERSHIPS AND CHRYSLER CUSTOMER RELATIONS HAVE BEEN ABSOLUTELY NO HELP AT ALL. YOU ARE OUR ONLY HOPE.

MY 2007 MAKES POPPING NOISES DURING RIGHT TURNS THE WHOLE UNDERCARRIAGE HAS BEEN REPLACED AND THE PROBLEM STILL EXISTS!

Summary of Complaint

FILLING THE VEHICLE WITH FUEL CAUSES IT TO BUCK AND STALL. WAITING 5-10 MINUTES AFTER IT STALLS AND THE VEHICLE RUNS NORMALLY. ONLY HAPPENS WHEN FILLING THE VEHICLE, PUTTING IN FUEL TO LESS THAN FULL DOES NOT CAUSE THE PROBLEM. ACCORDING TO MY MECHANIC, THE PROBLEM MAY THE ROLL OVER VALVE ALLOWING FUEL INTO THE CHARCOAL CANISTER/EMISSIONS SYSTEM. MY RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET CONFIRMS THE PROBLEM WITH OTHER 2007 JEEP PATRIOTS AND OTHER MODEL YEARS AS WELL. NHTSA DEFECT INVESTIGATION #DP17002

Summary of Complaint

2007 JEEP PATRIOT LIMITED 4X4 CVT. EVERY TIME THE GAS TANK IS FILLED UP, THE CAR STALLS, BUCKS, AND/OR HESITATES. AFTER FILL UP, ABOUT A MILE OR LESS DRIVING OUT OF THE GAS STATION THE CAR WILL BUCK AND EVENTUALLY COMPLETELY STALL LOSING POWER STEERING. THIS JEEP HAD 122,000 MILES ON IT, BUT THIS ISSUE HAS OCCURRED FOR EVERY FILL UP SINCE AROUND 95,000. THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AS THE CAR HAS STALLED IN THE MIDDLE OF INTERSECTIONS OR IN THE MIDDLE OF A LANE. THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE SAME PROBLEM THAT IS MENTIONED ON HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF ONLINE FORUMS. I'VE HAD THE PCV VALVE, CHARCOL CANISTER, GAS CAP AND 5 OR MORE EVAP/EMISSION PARTS REPLACED WITH GENUINE MOPAR PARTS AND NONE OF THESE REPLACEMENTS FIXED THE PROBLEM. THIS HAPPENS AT ANY DIFFERENT GAS STATION, DIFFERENT BRANDS AND DIFFERENT LOCATIONS AS WELL. THE JEEP STALLING AFTER FILL UP IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND PUTS ME AT RISK OF HARM EVERY TIME I LEFT A GAS STATION.
