I have a 2010 Jeep Patriot. I am looking to check the transmission fluid level. I can't find the tube to put in the dipstick. I have Googled & YouTube'd..and have been shown 3 locations. Next to the battery, in back by the firewall, or on the left of the engine. I can't find my tube anywhere. I have taken off the air vent on top that's near the battery too. Most sites show year 2014 and newer...mine is 2010,,any ideas?

Here is a PDF copy of the owner's manual this might help but if it's a CVT which I think it is you don't have access a Trans dipstick.

Here's the fill tube for the CVT. If it's not there, it may have broken off.

Welcome to the group. From what I've heard, it's all that uncommon for the fill tube to break off. When I replaced my battery I very nearly broke mine when the battery slipped out of my hands.

Yep, it's easy to hit and not braced very well.

I was thinking it was an auto since he also posted here, but I could be wrong:

I hadn’t seen that. My reason for asking is because Im learning a lot about maintainence from this jeep and i didn’t know manuals dont have dipsticks until i realized i had a transmission leak and had to use the check plug.

Okay, I see what you mean, makes sense.
