Jeep Patriot 2.0 crd 2008

Hi guy's

New to this forum so please bear with me looking for advice on a potential clutch issue with my newly purchased Pat 2.0 crd. The vehicle has only covered 26000 miles but seems to have quite a high biting point on the clutch i.e last couple of inches or so. There are no signs of slipping or any noise at all just seems high? My last vehicle was a Liberty 2.5 crd which had a very low biting point. I may be worrying about nothing but need some advice either way. Thanks guy's

I see nothing about adjusting the release point in the Service Manual. Just make sure that the Brake Master Cylinder Reservoir is filled and the air is out of the system. There is a push rod that connects the pedal with the cylinder but it says nothing about adjusting it for travel. It is possible that this is normal and also possible that the previous owner was hard on clutches. Since I don't have a manual shift I can only speculate from past experience and say that all systems feel different.

The friction point on my new clutch is about half way between the top and bottom of the "throw." Most used standard vehicles I ever had the friction point of the clutch was toward the top just as you describe... My jeep patriot is my first new vehicle with a standard transmission. I have noticed that my patriot has a very tight clutch and you have to be really smooth with it to get a smooth ride. It is the fastest four banger I have ever had to... This thing would walk all over my old 1998 TJ with the 4.0 and 5spd that's for sure.

I am very glad I went with the 5spd on my patriot... I really like it.

ETA/ my patriot has the 2.4

Thanks for the response. I reckon the previous owner was probably hard on the clutch and maybe did more city driving than highway. I'm just a bit twitchy because i will be towing a caravan a fair bit over the summer.
