Customer Question
My Jeep had the...

My Jeep had the overheat light come on, I used my computer machine and it stated a code P0218 Transmission Overtemp condition. What do I do to correct this.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant? Have you checked for a leak in the cooling system?

Yes, fluid is full, and all hoses are fine, there was no spots underneath vehicle. Does this mean I need a top up of my Tranny fluid. This code doesnt come up on codes on the net.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jeep?

2009 Jeep Patriot North 2.4L

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Patriot yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, just checked the codes first. Have checked all other fluids, hoses etc and all all fine. My wife went up a large hill stated RPM's were about 4.5 light came on. I drove it back home and it took 1 1/2 hrs. very hot day no over heating occured.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just wanting to know where and how to check transmission fluid, as it only has 67,000 KMS on vehicle

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!
