when pumping gas i cannot allow it to 'fill up' because the gas will leak out instead of telling the handle to stop pumping gas as it normally should. i am aware that dodge durango had a recall on this very matter, yet the caliber has not. i have to keep track of how many gallons i put in so as not to let it over flow. am i the only owner of a dodge caliber having this issue with the fuel system/gasoline? *js

while sitting in idle the vehicle will rev up on its own, rpms will increase greatly, vehicle will actually lunge forward due to the very high idle. idle will then drop and sometimes cause the vehicle to stall. vehicle will then not start properly. once restart does occur, vehicle will jerk when put into gear. acceleration is then very slow while rpms are still running very high. while driving rpms will then drop and vehicle will jerk before the rpms rise again. this causes very poor mileage as well as unsafe conditions while at a stop or driving. this occurs intermittently. has been checked numerous times by different dealerships and independent mechanics, however, problem is so intermittent that a diagnosis has yet to be correct so no solution has been found as of this time. problem has occurred off and on for 2 years and is very frustrating. *tr

notice fuel smell in my garage. took to mechanic and found gas tank strap has punctured fuel tank on passenger side of vehicle. upon inspection found that gas tank strap is missing foam insulation between tank and strap. this vehicle is not driven in winter so it is very clear that this foam was not installed at factory. i have contacted chrysler to see if they will repair vehicle since it is out of warranty. looking up on internet there are pages of gas fumes from dodge chargers. this is a safety hazard since gas fumes are highly flammable. *tr

the gas tank sprays a large amount of gasoline back out of the tank every time it is filled. this is a flammable and environmental hazard. it is the same symptom as in the 2005 dodge durango recall, yet the '06s are not included. this is clearly a manufacturing defect, yet dodge will not correct this, and it is a costly repair to the consumer. *tt

when we filled up at the gas station the car didn't plug itself when it got full--gas ran out all over my hands, car and ground. this has happened at least 4 times in the last year. the dealership tells me that my vin is not one of the cars registered for a recall for the fuel tank inlet check valve--which it should be! this is a fire waiting to happen!!!! *tt

a small brass bushing fell on my right foot one day while driving. i picked it up and put it in the console cup holder. a few days later while accelerating onto the highway the gas pedal stuck and the engine revved. this has happened a few times since. i called chrysler to check if my caliber was covered under the gas pedal recall. i was told the recall only covered vehicles from a certain date range. my caliber was manufactured 2/06. *tt

i am amazed there are no reports on 1998 1/2 - 2001 model dodge pickups with the cummins diesel engine as the bosch vp44 main (injector) fuel pump has a failure rate of 100%. i've had 3 fail so far & for diesel mechanics it's common knowledge that it's not a matter of if the the vp44 pump will fail, it's just a matter of when. the last time a pump died on me was when i was going down the interstate @ 70 mph & the engine just shut off. i knew immediately it was another fuel pump failure, but other drivers may not realize what went wrong & i'd be surprised if there haven't been any wrecks due to vp44 pump failure, which gives you no advance warning - it just quits. in 2002 dodge/cummins charged the fuel system on the diesel engine for dodge pickups (including a different fuel pump), but all 1998 1/2 thru 2001 models came with the same bosch vp44 main injector pump. *tt

when fueling the car, the auto shutoff does not work and fuel spews out of the tank. this is most likely caused by a valve in the gas tank that is there to prevent an explosion in the event of a rollover accident. the valve is defective, and thus the gas spills out, and the car could possibly explode in a rollover accident. i had taken it to a dealership about a year ago and all they would do is clean out the filter. that did not resolve the problem. *tt

i have the 6.7 cummins diesel engine. while stopped and with the air conditioning on and while the truck is performing the regeneration process raw fuel and exhaust fumes enter the cab of the truck forcing me to roll my windows down. this has caused me to get lightheaded if i don't roll my window down in time. this happens about once every two weeks to me(each time the above conditions are met). putting the air conditioning on recirculate will help. however recirculate will not work for the heater or window defroster which further impairs my ability to drive. i spoke to the dealer and they called dodge. dodge said that this is normal. this is not normal and is a serious health and safety issue. *tr

i have owned this vehicle for approximately four years now. it has a persistent and very unsettling problem of stalling for no apparent reason with no corresponding warning lights etc. it just dies and the power steering and brakes fail resulting in significant loss of steering and braking effectiveness. this problem has occurred intermittently with no pattern of origin evident several times over the past few years. on several occasions, it has occurred while pulling out into busy traffic lanes across intersections. i have been able to put it into neutral and immediately restart it to avoid a collision. i have utilized fuel cleaners and changed the spark plugs etc. in a effort to resolve the issue. it happened again today at low speed in a parking lot fortunately..just died without warning. i researched this online and found that this is a common engine problem complaint with the durango. today, this occurred with over 3/4 tank of fresh fuel in the tank. this problem constitutes an immediate safety hazard to owners of these vehicles and i am requesting that nhtsa initiates an investigation into it's cause ( s ) - thank you - related website link re: common problem - http://www.carcomplaints.com/dodge/durango/2005/engine/stalling_without_warning.shtml . *tr

when the vehicle is being refueled at a gas station, it will not automatically shut the gas pump off. it will spill gas all over the truck and pavement. it will do this every time, unless we carefully monitor and estimate how much gas it needs to be full and stop it before it reaches that point. this seems to be a common issue among this year model of trucks. we purchased this vehicle as used and the first time we filled up we had this issue. dodge told us $87 to evaluate issue and an additional $500 to fix it - in the same phone call. they know the issue, they are having issues with it in other rams but they refuse to do anything to resolve an ongoing issue. *tr

recurring issue of engine stalling after refueling. usually within 5 minutes of filling, and when driving slowly. internet search indicates this is a rampant problem, not only with caravans, but with other chrysler/dodge vehicles. apparently the entire gas tank requires replacement, which indicates to me it is a design flaw and should be recalled. *tr
