Jeep reckon it is the crank sensor. Will find out on Monday if the problem is resolved.

You know...they put these sensors all over these new cars...and it's always the sensor itself that fails.

Well my 2011 Patriot left me stranded 120 mile from my house again yesterday. The Jeep dealer I have been dealing with has not called me back today so I tried going to a other Jeep dealer and asked if they honor my extended warranty. He said he did and after I told him about my problem he grabbed his 'transmission specialist' and they said that they're aware of the problem and Chrysler isn't doing anything about it. They say its in the manual as 'normal'. Are you kidding me??? They even said they had someone else earlier in the week with the same problem. I can't believe that!!! I will be filing a case with Chrysler and will be buying a Toyota or Honda in the next month instead of the new Cherokee or Grand Cherokee.

Buy a vehicle with a real trans and not a POS CVT and you will be good.

Update on my transmission issue. Although the new dealership admit we have a problem and the first thing the guy said to us was sounds like you need a new transmission- they replaced the crank sensor and it still didn't fix the problem. Now Chrysler want them to carry out what the dealership describe as an extremely laborious investigation into the electrics rather than replace the darn thing. They even admitted off the record that it is a lousy transmission. Chrysler, however, refuse to admit that.

The dealership have promised that we won't get the jeep back until its fixed. They even admitted that not being able accelerate to get out of trouble was dangerous. We will see what happens next week. Chrysler do not fill us with confidence but at least the dealership are admitting there is a fault- even if they don't seem to be able to fix it yet.

Hey tjkj2002 why don't you get a life instead of sitting at home on a Friday night making worthless comments to posts?

Update on my transmission issue. The dealer just called me and said he was working with Chrysler on the issue and their recommendation is to flush the transmission that has 80k on it. He said 'you're supposed to do it at 60k'. Yeah if you're under extreme conditions which I'm not, (not using it as a taxi, no hitch so no towing) just every day driving on the highway. So they want $400 to do that which is BS!!! I understand the fluid is expensive but they don't even know if this will fix the problem!! Why would I pay $400 to do something that is not scheduled yet and may not fix the problem?! That's the reason I purchased an extended warranty!!!!

They replaced our transmission after testing until it broke enough for Chrysler to accept to replace it under warranty. We had to wait for over a week to get the part as there were no parts in the north America or mexico. So far so good. Dealership did a great job- except following up with us for trade in which we want at some point. We will change it before the warranty is up for sure. Glad to have it back.

had same problem. used same fix as my dodge turbo cummins transmission. All Chrysler products have a mechanical thermostat built into the oil-air cooler line. its made of aluminum so when the spring and plunger get gritty it doesn't move when it heats up and sends your fluid right back into the transmission uncooled. it simple to clean, remove snap ring pop out plunger and thermo spring clean off grit replace don't misplace o-ring. on a patriot follow your oil-air cooler lines through the grill and it will be inboard of the driver side headlight. it is a square 3x3 inch aluminum block with four oil lines going into it. you can just eliminate it and run full time air-oil cooling if you don't live in frigid climate. change your fluid at 60K not 120 as it will be burnt for sure by then. it cheaper online then at a dealer. 35 a gallon or 7 a quart, you need five for a oil and filter change. the cvt transmission is a very good transmission, built and sold by jatco to over a half dozen car manufactures.

Carlsonr are there any special tools needed to change the transmission fluid? Do you know of any 'how to's'?
