  1. 2010 Jeep Patriot Sport Knocking Noise

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Hi all, Within the last 24 hours (Wednesday) I have started hearing a rotating knocking noise that sounds like it is related to wheel rotation speed around my front driver side wheel. It started as a slight rubbing sound, related to wheel rotation speed, and within a few hours of drive time has...
  2. Creaking Jeep

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    I had my jeep inspected a few weeks ago and let them know i had a creaky noise in the rear of my vehicle. They said they didn't hear it but since then it has got dramatically worse. Do they typically check suspension and what not during inspection? It has got really loud when stopping or...
  3. Recurring Rotor Warping/Noise when turning

    Suspension and Tires
    I have a 2013 latitude and had my first set of full replacement brakes at 68,000 miles then again around 90,000+ miles and now at 127,000 the rotors are warped once again. I do a decent amount of highway driving but have never had a vehicle needing replacement brakes this often. Mechanics...
  4. Tire Noise after Rotation

    Suspension and Tires
    I just got my tires rotated. Overall they have about 5700 miles on them. i rotated them at about 3000 then again now at 5700 miles. Now the tire place said they are wearing much faster than they should and they are not good for 4 wheel drive vehicles. They said they'll probably need pro...

  7. CVT Fluid and Filter change? Loud whine and dealer issues

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Hi, first post. I've read probably every post in the forum and elsewhere online on CVT issues and still I'm uncertain about what to do so here it goes... I purchased a 2008 Patriot 2.4L 4x4 two years ago with 93K. I've previously owned XJs and WJs and I honestly love the Patriot. I've put a lot...
  8. Jeep Patriot Turning Noise

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    I recently noticed when i make a pretty hard left turn, either going slow or fast at like 20 MPH, I hear a clicking noise. Or almost like a chopping sound but nothing with i turn right or go straight. I have had my control arm replaced in the past, not sure if it's that again, but was curious...
  9. Engine Rattling Noise

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    i own a 2007 2.4l 4wd 4D Jeep Patriot and i started to notice a noise coming from my engine that was similar to a rattling noise. assuming it was a loose or broken bearing , I went to replace my two idler pulleys, my tension pulley, and the sound still remained after all of that. The sound...
  10. Normal Noises or Not

    4X2 Patriot Discussion
    The dealer replaced the CVT in my 2011 2wd Pat Latitude under warranty a week after I bought it with 35,935 miles on it. The carfax showed the original owners traded it with less than 2 weeks left of their first 5 years. The thing was immaculate inside and out and the dealer has their own 100K...
  11. Whirring noises when I am driving

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    I just noticed my 2010 patriot constantly makes a kind whirring noise when I am driving. I can confirm it is not engine or switch gear related. Because it is whirring only when I am moving. And the frequency of this noise match the speed. When I am driving slow, the rhythm is slow, when I am...
  12. Autostick Creates Noise

    Engine and Drivetrain
    After using the Autostick, there is a spinning/whistling type noise coming from the Jeep. It only makes the noise after I use the Autostick and it won't stop making the noise when I take it out of Autostick mode. I'm assuming it has to do with my tranny. What could it be?
  13. Can you guess what THIS is?

    Engine and Drivetrain
    What is this crazy noise? Around 1000 - 2000 RPMS I get this crazy robotic whirring noise. It's getting louder and I'm starting to get worried. I'm hoping it's not the tranny, but i feel like that's what...

  16. whistle or whining noise when off throttle or in Drive at stop

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    My wife has a 2013 Patriot FDI and CVT - had about 2800 miles when this started occurring... I noticed it after a long trip on the highway, after getting off I could hear this "loud" noise simular to a tea pot whistle or IMHO a loud CVT sound. And by loud it was maybe about the same sound as...
  17. 2012 Patriot 2.4L I4 Engine Ticking Noise

    Engine and Drivetrain
    :confused:I can find no good answers to this one. The engine in my 2012 Patriot 4x4 (600 miles)has a cold start ticking noise. As the engine warms up, the ticking sound (sounds just like a valve tapping) is less pronounced, but it never goes away. The dealer just told me that they listened to my...

  19. Noise inside door when raising/lowering window?

    Electrical and Audio
    Every time I raise or lower my passenger side window on my 2010 Patriot, there is a slight (0.5 second) delay and then I hear a harsh click that sounds like an object hitting the inside of the door panel. Imagine the sound of an apple hitting a tile floor. The window works fine, but whatever...
