problem #1

May 252008

Dakota 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Dakota. While driving 55 mph, the vehicle stalled. The failure occurs constantly. The engine light illuminated and remains lit. The dealer stated that the fuel cap was not secured tightly enough. The fuel cap has been changed three to four times, but the failure still persists. In addition, it takes the contact 20 minutes to place fuel in the vehicle. If he pumps too quickly, the gas nozzle will shut off and gasoline will splash out. The mechanic stated that there is a filter on the tank that is clogged, which must be changed or cleaned after every oil change. The failure mileage was 69,000. Updated 06/17/08.
