Why is Your 2011 Patriot’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed.

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Jeep Patriot transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Jeep Patriot transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Patriot’s not even driveable.

2011 Jeep Patriot Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Jeep's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 small. Defying your Patriot towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Patriot's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Jeep Patriot’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Jeep, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
