2017 Jeep Patriot Drivetrain Service

All About 2017 Jeep Patriot Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Patriot's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2017 Jeep Patriot, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Jeep's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
