Fuel overflow recall on 2005 Durango

I know there was a recall for certain 2005 Durangos due to fuel oveflowing when you fill the gas tank. We just recently found out about this. My husband's 2005 Durango now has the same exact problem, but it's out of warranty by three months and his VIN is not under the recall. Is he just sh*t out of luck, or has anyone had any luck getting Dodge to cover a recall that doesn't support a particular VIN? It's the SAME problem, but he is getting nowhere with the dealer or Dodge. It will cost $700 to fix if we pay for it. Thanks for any insight you might have. I have the same problem with 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan. It's still under warranty until May 2009. I will try to contact dealer with this issue. Hope they will help.

    I have a 2006 Durango with the same problem.  Build in 2/06 the Dodge website and the dealer told my there has NEVER been a recall on the 2005's.  BUT a TSB or Technical Service Bulletin was issued.  I did an internet search and Recall comes up all over the place.  Well I have been spewed with gas at stations ranging from Austin Texas to North Oklahoma and west into Arkansas.  Is it my Durango or the gas pumps?  My bet is the Durango has an issue.  This started with in the last year.  I can do the slow auto pump, fast auto pump, self slow pump, hold the nozzle in & up, down and out and I still get sprayed with gas after the pump shuts off.  If you see me at the station don't come near me with an open flame!  We'll see what the dealer sez on Monday morning when I get there at 7am for them to look at this non-existent problem.  I find it hard to believe every gas station using different filler mechanisms has the same effect on my 2006 Durango.  Logic eliminates all the variables.  The Durango is the only constant besides my hand at the pump.  But my hand is also eliminated by using the auto SLOW selection on the handle.  I have even tried pulling back the rubber cover to see if that will help, nope I got sprayed every time.  I drive for a living and this is a multi time per week occurrence.

U will have to discuss this with Dodge, have no info of any kind here, all Dodge has to do is run your Van's VIN number in there computer and if it needs the recall it will show it on the print out.

    Town and Country Van running out of gas and guage says half a tank what could be the problem?


    If your fuel gauge is showing you in accurate readings this is normal to all vehicles that are not used to fill-up gas full regularly but sometimes the cause of the inacuracy is due to faulty float valve in the gas tank you need to replace it

    2005 volvo xc90 2.9 l smell gas in garage after filling up


    Hello, I know you posted this question almost a year ago and I don't know if you have your answer yet. I just wanted to let you know we had a similar problem after purchasing a used 2003 Volvo XC90 earlier this year for my daughter to drive around, and found out that there was an outstanding recall on it due to the fumes from the gas tank. It had something to do with the fuel lines, and and the fuel tank, and being in a southern state (in which we are) I would suggest checking to see if your car falls into this category.

    2001 Durango acts like the gas tank is full during filling cutting off the pump. The only way to fill tank is to pump gas really slow


    Chrysler and Dodge have a fuel vapor filter that allows air out of the gas tank but filters the harmful fumes. Usually the problem happens from topping off your gas after the gas pump stops due to the automatic shut off and then putting more gas in the tank (to make the bill an even $50. or to the next $5 increment, or pumping more in just because it fits). Anyway the filter gets saturated with gas, is not able to breath, and causes a vacuum in the tank. Because of this, the anti-siphon ball is not able to float around and sits at the opening of the fuel fill tube and won't allow any more gas to be put in (acts like the car is full). If you pump super duper slow like put a nickel to hold the gas pump handle, it will trickle in without a problem, but it takes forever! Solution, get the filter replaced and don't over fill the tank.

    Fuel-spit back from my 2005 Dodge Durango


    WOO stop there is a major recall with the 05 durangos the check valves get stuck they are recalling the gas tanks on thousands of those car. that is a big fire hazard. Go to the dealer I garente ur vehcle is recalled u may have not gotten the notice in the mail yet. Please rate if this helps.

    Here is a copy of the dealer recall notice.

    2005 (HB) Dodge Durango
    NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles built from October 13, 2004
    through November 30, 2004 (MDH101300 through 113023).
    The fuel tank inlet check valve on about 18,900 of the above vehicles may stick in
    the open position. This can cause fuel to spill out of the filler tube when the
    vehicle is being refueled. Fuel in the presence of an ignition source can result in a
    fire.
    The fuel tank inlet check valve must be tested for proper operation. Vehicles with
    a sticking check valve must have the fuel tank replaced.
