My mechanic took off the tank and replaced both fuel pumps, syphon hoses and gas gauge sensors (all located in the fuel tank)--be sure to use Chrysler factory parts from a dealer. They cost about 426-475 for all parts plus tax. He charged about $350 for labor. Works like new now. Worked for me. I found the answer on another website. Good luck.

My 05 Pacifica touring is now having this issue. Does anyone have a definative solution other than having the local dealer experiment on it? I have following symptons: Gas tank only lets a few gallons in before I have to 'spoon feed' it (trickel the gas in till the filler neck is full) to get it it fill up. It now only takes a max of about 12 gallons now (used to be 20 I thought). I thought the pacifica has a 20 gallon tank. The gas gauge or fuel gauge, goes from 1/2 full to empty in about 10 miles now. The 'miles till empty' drops from 120 miles to-go to 10 miles to-go withing a 2 mile range now. Is this a venting issue, a gas tank issue or a fule transfer issue? I'm now unemployed and hate to be a lab rat. I would like to have a solid answer (and estimate) before leaving it at the dealer.

Has anyone found out a solution to this problem with filling up? I have let my car run completely out and then filled it up slowly, which took forever, until it over flowed and that was only 10 gallons. Any help is appreciated. And the answers that talk about the gas station>>>>that has nothing to do with it, I have been to MANY.

chysler said they will pay for they will pay for half of the cost of replacing the fuel tank which will cost $1200...this is the only fix they say...this is unacceptable as this is a safty issue becuase the car can stall...chrysler said they will not pay for all of it becuase not enough people have complained which i cant understand as i see this problem being complained about all over the net...contact chrysler and the national highway traffic safty addmin.. maybe we can get chrysler to fix this problem before someone gets hurt..they sent a car out of their factory doors w/ the wrong gas tank and now the car is unsafe to drive and this is unacceptable!...please contact me anyone...maybe we can all get together and keep from getting the shaft by chrysler and stop people from getting hurt becuase of a faulty product!

I'm having the same problems as everyone else. Fills up to about 7 gallons then constantly shuts off. There has been no recal but if everyone would call 888-327-4236 to complain it might help.

Three times the pumps had to be replaced. The pumps three years ago were faulty. Have not had a problem since then. Surprised you have not had a problem till now, unless you just bought the car. In that case, if you investigate, you will find a history of the problem. The tank has two pumps, one for the engine, and one to pump the second tank into the first tank. Your gas gauge will show empty when the second pump does not work, and of course then the only tank you can fill is the first. The pump shuts off. Plus making a hard left or right turn at a certain speed the car will stall. You have gas, but the car does not not it, or cannot access it. The new pumps work good now. I got the same story at first, but after going to Detroit, they admitted a problem.

Hey, has anyone had a problem with a crack at the top of the fuel tank? I am told that the fuel tank of my 2006 Pacifica has to be replaced along with the fuel pump and ??? something else.........I think he said fuel line, not sure. Anyway, due to the "shrinking" of the fuel tank with the heat here in Florida, there is a crack at the fuel pump. The dealership said that replacing only the pump, will not work since due to the shrinking of the tank, this will cause a crack at the pump again.
Really, why is a gas tank shrinking?? Is this normal? And if so, why haven't I had this problem with any other car I've owned? How do I know this won't happen to the new gas tank.
This has to be a flaw in the tank????? Help..........this is a $2000.000 plus repair.

Don't let Chrysler use your vehicle as an experiment. They are making a killing replacing fuel pumps, gas tanks fuel sending units and fuels modules. I went through all of this and after spending hundreds, the solution ended up costing around $3.00. They HAVE TO know it's a simple fix that you can do yourself. I've outlined it in my post here: http://www.dodgeboard.com/forums/index.php?threads/my-crazy-gas-gauge.6381/
