Are you ready to delve into the intricate process of overhauling a 2011 Jeep Patriot transmission? Join us at MacGyver’s Workshop as we take on this challenging task, step by step.

Once we identified an issue with the transaxle’s pressure dropping after reaching normal operating temperatures, we decided to pull the transmission out and thoroughly examine it.

Here are the essential tools you’ll need for this job:

  • Transmission jack
  • Drain pan
  • Garbage can
  • Support bar
  • Magnet container
  • Assorted sockets and wrenches
  • Fishy magnet
  • Right angle pick
  • Long nose pliers
  • Various ratchets and torque wrenches
  • Brake parts cleaner
  • Trim clip pliers
  • Pressure gauge

Next, we begin the process by draining the transmission fluid, followed by the removal of the pan bolts and filter.
