2005-06 LX warranty extension

by David Zatz on

SpeedFactory Charger

Chrysler has issued a service bulletin (#14-002-14) for the 2005-06 Chrysler 300, Dodge Magnum, and Dodge Charger V8s (with 19-gallon fuel tanks), extending the warranty on certain parts to “lifetime.” If the car stalls just after the tank is filled, the dealer is to replace the tank, control valve, and associated parts; the process should take around two hours and twenty minutes.

The problem stems from fuel shutoff floats in the gas tanks, which can stick in the open position, causing a stall after refueling in some cases involving certain fuels. Stant, the supplier, redesigned the floats, and both Chrysler and Stant provided the new warranty. The tanks were used in both 5.7 and 6.1 Hemi cars, but not in V6 models.

The extended warranty was prematurely announced by the NHTSA earlier this year, before procedures or parts were ready. At this time, according to one source, parts are available, processes for dealers to recoup their labor are in place, and customers can get the issue addressed.  Around 153,000 cars were built with this potential issue, though after eight to nine years, many have likely been taken off the road.
