I guess all the Gen 2s have crappy fuel filler tube check valves then. According to the VIN look up mine isn't in the recall (or possibly already had the recall work done) and this starts after my model year. :wall:

I am so glad I checked this out. We have been having this problem on my '06 for years, but it wasn't covered for the '06s originally. Had the dealer run my VIN and found out it is covered. Sweet!

You guys have any idea why this doesn't list the 2009 Durango or Aspen? I just picked up an 09 Aspen, and on my first fill up it did this to me. Google lead me here, luckily it's a familiar forum!

Or is there a seperate TSB for the 2009?

If you guys have any other info, please let me know. I'm going to make an appointment next week for this and for the Passenger Airbag Recall.

I called dodge about my 2005 Durango and they said it's included in this group for the lifetime fuel system warranty. It spits back when filling up.
Taking it in this week to hopefully get this resolved.

Been battling fuel spitback on my 2008 Aspen since I got it last September.

Last week, my wife got about a litre dumped on her when she was refueling the Aspen while traveling between work locations. Soaked her work clothes. She was pissed. She had never experienced the problem before as she rarely filled the tank past half full, but this time she decided to do a full fill. I told her that I was aware of the problem and I used a "slow fill" technique when the tank got to about the 85 litre point.

Decided to do a search tonight to see if there was a fix as I figured that it had to be a combination of the gas tank pressurizing during the fill and a check valve of some sort in that long skinny filler line that wasn't closing properly ... and discovered the "Warranty Extension" TSB in the process. Looks like I'll be talking to my local FCA dealership's service department so they can order the parts and do the filler and the passenger air bag recall at the same time.

My 2005 Durango wasn't as bad, but it still did it. The existence of the TSB certainly does explain why nearly every Durango I looked at after my 2005 was totaled had rust issues on the body work directly below the fuel filler. All that gas spilled down the side wasn't good for the paint.

I still don't understand how the 2009 isn't covered under this. I hate having to listen for the fuel to sound like it's coming up the neck and then killing the trigger.

Went to the dealer today and asked about the "spit back" fix and showed them a copy of the TSB. They confirmed that my VIN qualifies, and it is an unlimited time/unlimited mileage warranty item. They have ordered the kit and will fit it at the same time I come in to have the passenger side airbag recall done.

I read about spraying some wd40 down the air neck... I did this and let it soak a over night then sprayed some more. The next fill up it splooged out again. Lett'r soak with some pm blaster and BAM Next 3 fillups so far have been dry as a bone and no more spilt fuel.

Interesting....so just spray some PB Blaster down there? How much, or should say how long did you spray?

at the time i was working out of town with company vehicle so I dont remember exactly how much. Was only driving the occasional weekend I got to go home ( i fueled up like every 4-7 weeks if that shows how much I got to drive)... I sprayed maybe 10-15 seconds in the top air vent tube. I sprayed and it got to sit for about a week then I had a extra trip home and sprayed it again about the same. Then I got to drive it 2 weeks and actually run a tank of fuel thru it. Was still splooging but not as much so I sprayed a little more and then have had no issues since..
