What model Manual Transmission?

Hi, my friend has an 06 or 07 Patriot with the 2.4 engine and a manual transmission. We were discussing the fact that the transmission has already had to be worked on once and is acting up again. The question I had was if we need to go junkyard shopping for a replacement what model transmission does he have and what other Chrysler vehicles use that same transmission. Iím hoping it was used on something more common that will be easier to find in junkyards. Thanks!!

I don't mean to be rude, but it took me literally 30 secs to search "2006 jeep patriot specs" & find this:

5-speed Magna T355 manual

...looks like that trans was used in caliber & compass too.

Edit: some apparently report better shifting from it after using redline mtl instead of atf+4

I could be wrong but I thought the T355 transaxle was also used in a Neon.

I'm not certain, but I believe I read that the T355 is a revised version of what the Neon had & will not interchange

Once I had the model number I looked it up and that's what I discovered. Looks like he can only get one from a Caliber, a Patriot, or a Compass. Thanks for the info! Heís going to try the other tranny fluid you suggested.
