    Hi All, Just changed my transmission fluid in my CVT and pretty sure i put more fluid back in then what came out of the pan. I’ve heard u can use the engine dipstick before changing the fluid but i didn’t do this so im not sure what point on the dipstick it should be. Would anybody kind...

    Hey Guys, My patriot is doing great, but sometimes the wear of the transmission shows as it jolts back and fourth when accelerating especially uphill. I’m just about to change the both CVT filters to help slow the aging, and was told that some trans mechanics use thicker oils to help make up...

    Hello all, New to the forum but long time Mopar lover, Have had my 2011 caliber and 2010 ram for several years. I recently purchased a 2012 Patriot with the automatic CVT, 4 wheel drive and 2.4 motor. After getting it home it Refuses to drive at all, forward or reverse, without severely...

    My 2012 latitude 2.4l just got the po741 code this week. This car is my daily commuter (150 miles round trip) and unfortunately coming to the end of its life. 233k miles and severe rot on the rear subframe. But I need it on the road for a bit longer to get another car. I’m trying to go through...

    I have a CVT in my patriot and want to install a temp gauge without a T-Fitting since it will be more accurate coming from the transmission itself. I can not seem to find the test port on the transmission anywhere... does anyone know where it is located?

    Hey everyone! I'm new here and purchased a used 2010 Jeep Patriot back in January of this year. I believe it had about 98k miles when I bought it. It's at 104k now. Anyways, this thing was running beautifully up until a couple weeks ago when it started to make a weird knocking/ticking sound...

    I have 2016 FWD CVT Pat and today as I was coming back home, it started to seem like it was braking on its own at highway speeds. As I slowed down it continued the same, the temperature is normal not over heating or anything... I got home and tried to use the autostick and 1st gear was hesitant...
  8. Engine and Drivetrain
    Hello, i recently bought a 2014 Patriot and im trying to figure out what transmission i have. Ive been working under the assumption that i have a CVT because as far as i can tell it is bottom of the line no bells or whistles. Front wheel drive, crank windows, 2.0L engine. Also doing a VIN lookup...

    Gents: Have a 2012 Jeep Patriot Limited 4x4 Limited (salvage) with only 49K miles and a CVT problem. Out of a blue, while on a highway, the transmission did not react to the engine, so luckily I was with no much traffic and managed to park aside an later had it towed home. OBDII indicated both...

    Has anyone removed the CVT Cooler Filter? I’m considering making this change. Here are some Advantages/Disadantages that I came up with. Advantages: More flow to the Cooler. No chance of flow restriction due to a contaminated filter. No future maintenance. Disadvantages: Possible...

    Hi! I have a 2011 with 127K miles on original CVT. I am trying to make transition last as much as possible and it works well for most part only a little whine here and there. I tend to use cruise control a lot in highway, does the cruise control affects transmission or not?
  16. Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Hello everyone! I just purchased a 2017 jeep patriot 2.0l with 107k mi I'm pretty sure the only trans option with the 2.0s was the CVT trannys. Everything is great except while driving without using autostick. It bogs down like crazy and almost feels like there is a misfire (no codes, I...

    Does anyone know how much fluid it takes to , say, add 10mm on the Dorman dipstick? Not sure if it’s model specific , 2012 latitude 4wd 2.4l
  18. Engine and Drivetrain
    I’ve had my 2017 high-altitude jeep patriot since October 2019. Everything that I look up is contradictory of my car. I have to autostick (R) automatic transmission but it is apparently only available on 2.4L models. make sure that this question has been asked on him so many times it’s probably...

    Hi all, I have a 2011 Pat sprt with close 125K miles, never had a transmission issue. Kept maintinance pretty good and to the bare minimum. Should I expect transmission to go out and quit soon? tic toc tic toc? Never done anything to transmission, not even fluid check/swap. Please write your...
  20. Engine and Drivetrain
    Hello, I'm fairly convinced that I have either a bad rear electrical clutch or driveline module. I purchased a very abused Jeep Patriot 2008 for a few hundred bucks and I noticed that the rear differential had a leak. It had obviously been driven with almost no fluid and it looked very black...
