It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2007 Jeep Patriot transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

2007 Jeep Patriot Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Jeep's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Jeep tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Patriot’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Patriot's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2007 Patriot’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Jeep's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
