2013 Jeep Patriot Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 2013 Patriot’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. 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 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.

2013 Jeep Patriot Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Jeep? 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 my Jeep tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Patriot towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Patriot's transmission fluid need to be inspected? 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.
