2010 jeep patriot trans fluid
 
I have an automatic jeep patriot that needs trans fluid. I don't have $ to spend on taking it to jeep but it needs fluid bad. Can I put some ATF+4 in it to temp fix it?

If you put ATF+4,or any other ATF, in that is a sure bet that you will be buying a new trans.You need CVT fluid from the dealership.

Ok that's what I wanted to know. So it needs cvtf+4

How did you determine that you needed trans fluid?

A local mech had the measuring tool from the dealer. He checked it and put like half a quart of cvt. which fixed the problems

So you going to fix the leak? The fluid just does not disappear.

And was there any burned fluid inside it? Some signs of early cvt failure might be burned fluid.

Ill have to check for leaks.
