    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...

    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?
  12. 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

    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...
  16. 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...
  17. Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Hi guys, I’m new here. My husband has a 2012 Jeep Patriot that has been sitting for about a month with a shot transmission. It’s the CVT trans and we’re in search for a new one. Does anyone have links to websites for remanufactured or new/never used transmissions? Our budget is $4,000.
  18. Engine and Drivetrain
    I am having the CVT trans. issues on my 08, can I get a non-cvt trans. from the 2014 or later Patriot and install it on mine?
  19. Engine and Drivetrain
    Hello, I would appreciate any input on the issue I'm having on my 2016 Patriot CVT ~60K Miles. There is a vibration that is felt when under medium/heavy load. Once I let go of the accelerator/pedal the noise stops (i.e. cruising speed). If I slightly accelerate at full highway speed I do not...

    Well, bought a 09 Patriot for very cheap with 203,000 miles and I knew it had CVT transmission issues. The engine and transmission are clean and no leaks or seepage of any oil. I was shocked cause of how many miles are on it just dirt on the engine area. Bought the Patriot and drove it home and...
