I have a 2008 Compass (manual transmission). Every time I fill up with fuel the car dies. It is fine if you leave it there and idle. However, when you start going and then have to stop, (to get out of the gas station parking lot) the Jeep will die. It will start right back up and may die one more time at the next stoplight, depending on how fast I cam going. This only happens when I fill my tank. If my tank does not read full, (only fill it 3/4) of the way it runs fine. It only happens directly after fueling.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. It seems like it may be computer related, as it only happens when the tank is reading at "Full"

It sounds similar to this recall except it doesn't cover your model year.

Recall Date:

APR 03, 2013

Model Affected:

2012 Jeep Compass


Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2012 Jeep Patriot and Compass vehicles manufactured October 18, 2011, through May 7, 2012. Due to an incorrectly manufactured transfer tube, the transfer of fuel from the secondary side to the primary side of the fuel tank may be interrupted, causing the engine to stall.


If the engine stalls while driving it may increase the risk of a crash.


Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel tank transfer tube free of charge. An interim letter was mailed to owners on May 30, 2013. Owners were notified by Chrysler on July 19, 2013, that parts are now available. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N17.
