Next time you refuel, wait a bit longer before trying to start it. See if it stays running by doing that.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I filled up the tank waited for one minute before starting and drove about 100 yards to a stoplight and waited for about 30 seconds and it shut off but did start right back up.

No check engine light?

Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

do you fill up all the time?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No check engine light and it only does it after I fill up. Don't drive much so only fill up every couple of weeks when it gets down to about half tank.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Other than that the van runs fine.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Just over 100k miles.
Chrysler Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

next time you put fuel in it, do not fill it up. only put 3/4, see if that makes a difference, this could be a fuel tank vent problem

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.

TOM WHITTAKERUSA
