I have a 2010 Patriot with 2.4L CVT (auto) North I purchased the oil cooler kit 82210700. Went to install it, and its not correct. My upper rad hose goes straight from the Rad to the block (similar to the manual transmission). I called Jeep and confirmed with them and they says its the correct kit, any one else had problems??

I've ordered the same kit for my automatic (2008), but I'm waiting for my next oil change to tackle it (since I have to change the oil anyway). But, if you look at the instruction sheet, you shouldn't have to replace the upper radiator hose on the automatic; only the lower one (and the smaller diameter one that goes from the oil cooler back to the transmission cooler...I think). Anyway, from the way I read things, the manual package includes the hose that involves replacing the actual radiator cap section of things on top of the radiator; you shouldn't have to replace that hose in the automatic setup.

You get two hoses no matter which one you get, but from what I can tell the manual one has two hoses of the same diameter, each of which have a "T" built in that connects to a smaller diameter one. The automatic version has one larger diameter with a "T", and then a separate smaller diameter one with no "T".

Clear as mud?

I'm sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I've been reading through a few threads about the oil cooler install and it look fairly straight forward. I have 78k miles on my patriot and I'm planning on doing a coolant flush in the next 5k miles. I figure I'll be draining anyway, I might as well add this oil cooler, my question is: I do not tow but I have a hitch so I technically could. I do like to go off roading every so often. Would I benefit from the oil cooler with just everyday driving? Or is it a waste of money? I have the 4x4 fd1, 2.4L.

Let me know what you think! Thanks!

I don't understand the correlation between flushing the coolant system and adding an oil cooler...?

From what I understand, when you add the oil cooler, you have to drain the coolant system to replace the coolant hoses. I figure since I'm draining the system anyway I might as well add the oil cooler while its drained. Or is the oil cooler something that shouldn't be bothered with?

I got the oil cooler just for offroading, a cooler engine is a happier engine. Downside is that all the extra heat goes into the radiator which is also double purpose to cool the CVT, Thinking about getting an aftermarket CVT cooler as well. I've had the temp light a couple times and the dealer said they'd install one if I kept getting the light.

Does anyone think that another cooler can be added. Even if it only held two quarts more.

For the CVT yes. Any old aftermarket tranny cooler should fit. It just gets put in series with the tranny coolant line. I think a bigger radiator might be a good thing for offroading. Also hood louvers.

I just added one over the last weekend. Haven't had any noticeable difference, but I haven't put the jeep under a load since the install. I think it is worth it for piece of mind. If you are going to have the coolant drained anyway, the installation is a breeze. worst part for me was tracking down a M12 hex key to use.

It is very easy to install and I noticed in everyday driving my temperature gauge does not fluctuate anymore due to traffic, hot weather, or idling. Also, the car warms up much faster which should be great in the winter time.
