  1. Fuel Filler Hose

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Hey all This is driving me insane. I have a crack in my fuel filler hose (the 10" rubber hose that leads from the neck to the tank) and I can NOT find a replacement part anywhere. Stealership wants me to spend $400 on the entire assembly, which is bonkers. At this point I'm guessing it's a...
  2. Fuel spills!

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Hey all I was fuelling up my Patriot a couple weeks ago and noticed that at the top-off point gas was spilling onto the ground. When took it in to get the tires swapped I asked them to take a look and they let me know that the fuel filler hose running from the neck to the tank has a tear in it...
  3. Won't start when parked uphill

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Over the last month or two, my 2007 Pat 2.4L 4X4 Manual hasn't wanted to start when parked uphill. Even at very slight uphill, it will turn over but won't fire. If I roll it backwards until it is sitting level, it will start right up. Any ideas what is causing this? My best guess is that...

    Engine and Drivetrain
    I have a 2007 2WD Patriot. I was running low on fuel this morning (gas light was on) and I made a hard left turn and my Jeep stalled and would not start again.

  6. BG44K Power Enhancer and Fuel Filter?

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Hi all, I am currently around 75K km on my patriot 2007 2WD. My dealership told me the other thay that I should do a fuel system cleanup, but the price which was above 150$ is a little bit hard to take. I've read a little bit and everyone seems to suggest the BG44K Power Enhancer as a good...
  7. Smell of Gas in Cabin when you fill up ???

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Has anyone else had the problem of after filling up you get back in the car and you have a strong smell of gas inside the cabin? The first time it happened I thought I had gas on my hands, the second time I thought I had stepped in gas at the gas station. Today, I made special care to not get...
