    Hi! New here — was trying to change my spark plugs, but when I went to remove the spark plug the socket got stuck on the plug. I’m using a standard spark plug socket with a 10 in extension. When I try and remove it, the extension releases from the socket and the socket stays stuck. Any...

    I have a 2016 Patriot and got the throttle body replaced about 3 years ago after my car suddenly started jolting and shutting off after coming to a stop. About 2 years ago I had the spark plugs replaced due to the Jeep not accelerating after reaching about 25-30 mph. Earlier this year, I noticed...

    2014 patriot 4x4 latitude 6 speed auto- 80,000 miles. At speeds around 35-50 mph I'm getting rough shifts. It happens when I have taken off the gas momentarily and then apply throttle to come back to speed, like when I corner. I believe this is a down shift and it jolts me forward and sometimes...

    Hi guys I had a big problem of jerking acceleration at 2500rpm. I've put new spark plugs last friday and no more jerking acceleration. I thought it was the CVT that was doing this, but I was wrong. :D

    Mods, feel free to move this to the knowledge base. I wanted to create it here so I can modify the thread right away. I recently did a "Tune up" on my patriot. I took pictures to finally create a how to because I have been seeing more and more questions about doing it on the MK. Tools...

    Hi!!!!!!! 2 months ago I took my riot 2008 for the 25,000 miles service, I asked to replace the spark plugs with platinum type. It worked fine for about 1000 miles (I just feel the power of platinum spark plugs), but now I am having problems like fuel cut-off at 3000 rpm (betweeen 2800 and...
