  1. 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...

    Hi guys, Really hoping you can help. I have a 2011 Jeep patriot 2.4 with the CVT and I've just had my transmission going into limp mode. It revs high and doesn't go over about 40mph as others have reported. CEL is on and i'm getting the following codes P161B (ECU Transmission control unit) and...
  3. Engine and Drivetrain
    Last week I bought a used 2009 Patriot 2WD with a CVT, and 140K miles. Test drove it on Saturday, and went to pick it up Monday at noon. They brought it back from its state inspection at 3pm. It's like the Jeep I drove home is a different vehicle. About half way through my hour drive home, the...

    Hey fellow patriot owners! I have a 2010 jeep patriot, complete base model (crank windows and everything). Recently with all the cold weather we’ve been getting by me my shifter has been getting frozen in the mornings, I’ll have to wait about 2 hours with the car running before I can shift the...

    I got my oil changed on my 2008 Jeep Patriot. I then drove out of town yesterday 200 miles. I went to pickup a pizza later last night and my Jeep started to be sluggish hesitate when accelerating. It was fine once I was at speed, but it almost felt the gears were not shifting. Happened today...
  6. Newbie Check-In
    Hi! Me and my wife just got a 2013 Jeep Latitude, which I am fairly pleased with but have noticed a couple weird things with it. 1: I have noticed that it never sounds like it shifts, taking off I could tromp the gas pedal and noticed it jump up to 4k rpms to get up to 60mph but it never sounds...

    Hey guys, I own a 2012 Jeep Patriot Latitude Sport 4WD. The other day it started whining really loudly and wasn’t shifting properly. I put a scanner on it and it threw the code P0777: “Pressure Solenoid B Stuck On”. I know these transmissions are terrible, but can this part be replaced or is a...
  8. Newbie Check-In
    Hi All, my transmission failed yesterday and I'm sad about it as I really love my Pat. I have a 2016 5 speed manual FWD 2.0 that I bought brand new for myself on my 35th Birthday in October 2016. It's a no frills Jeep Patriot, no power locks or windows, she's as base model as you can get. I...
  9. Engine and Drivetrain
    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?
  10. Engine and Drivetrain
    Today as I was driving on slightly wet roads - I was at a stop sign and accelerated normally but my tires spun a bit ( probably need to get new ones ) - nothing abnormal at all but then I noticed my car revving higher than normal like it was still in first gear and not shifting. It's an...
  11. Engine and Drivetrain
    Hey all, I have a 2009 2.4 5 Speed Patriot that I have done a ton of work on. I would like it to last and have some spare time to rebuild the engine and T355 transmission. I am buying the kits for all seals, bearings, timing, pistons (getting the engine bored), valves, lifters, and cams. Also...

    Interested in what transmission (CVT or alternative) I have in my 2015 FWD Patriot, as well as the reality of putting a manual tranny in. Anyone’s input is welcome. I’d also like to hear about any performance mods y’all have done including FWD to 4x4 etc.
  13. 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...
  14. Engine and Drivetrain
    I have a 2012 2.0L patriot that I recently bought from an individual owner. After purchasing the vehicle I noticed that the transmission begins to slip in the first gear whenever I drove the car for a long period of time. I assumed that the transmission fluid was low, but when I checked it the...
  15. Newbie Check-In
    We recently purchased a 2016 Jeep Patriot North Edition (6-speed transmission). I thought it worked well during the test drive. But now we are noticing a bit of slippage / instability at slower speeds. I recognize some of this slippage may be because we live in a northern climate with some icy...

    Hey everyone, I bought my 2007 Patriot (manual trans, 4x4, basic bare bones) a few years back for a decent deal of $6k flat off a guy in my area. We have had no issues with the car, just standard service (tires, brakes etc). It's my wife's commuter car, and our road trip vehicle too. Our other...

    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...
  19. 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.

    So I just got a new (used) transmission for my 2009 Jeep Patriot. I paid $2500 for the Jeep. Didn't make it off of paper plates before the transmission went out. $800 for the transmission and $500 for installation and the thing is STILL not ready to drive!!!! The mechanic says it needs flashed...
