Hi,

CVT started to act up today. Car is constantly at 3500rpm, will not lower or go passed that when I floor it. Patriot 2007 with 105000 miles.

Always at 3500rpm except at idle or in neutral.

Thanks for any help.

Sounds like it's stuck in limp mode. Time to pull error codes.

Have the fluid and filters ever been changed and/or fluid level been checked that you know of?

Now it passes 3500rpm, but I cant go fast than 25mph.

Guess this piece of junk is gonna sell for parts...

In spite of its age, 105,000 miles is still pretty young for the junkyard. Have you taken it to a qualified mechanic? For a pile of peanuts you could be back on the road. My Patriot was at 200,000 miles when it had an electrical issue. It took a couple weeks to figure out, and it was $1000 to fix, but I got a couple more trouble-free years out of and and sold it last year to a friend who's still got it on the road.
