2008 Jeep Patriot Transmission Service & Repairs

What’s the Importance of Your 2008 Patriot’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Jeep Patriot transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Jeep Patriot transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Patriot’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2008 Jeep Patriot’s Transmission

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Jeep Patriot? 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.
  • When should I have my Patriot's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Jeep Patriot transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Jeep. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
