I am removing the alternator. I have no diagragm in the users manual for the serpentine belt and Haynes and Chilton don't make a book for my car.

5 spd manual. Making noise like no oil in transmission. How to check & add oil to transmission

Transmission doesn't shift into second gear. Will only go about 8 mph

Transmission wont shift from first to second gear

It was difficult to place it in Park and the throttle light came on.

TIMING CHAIN and pulleys

Bearings replaced in april. same day messed up. replaced rod and bearings. two weeks later replaced bearings again.
two weeks later replaced hub, spindle with bearings. One month later bearing bad again. Shop thinks a problem in Transmissiom causing it.

2010 Patriot 2 Wheel Drive 2.0 L 4 Valve w/ CVT 102000 mi.
After I changed my oil, the ETC light began flashing and the ESC light came on and stayed on. The RPM's responded to the accelerator but the car wouldn't actually accelerate. Did some digging through the web, and I found out that my vehicle had put itself in "limp mode". I figured it was a somewhat common throttle body issue. I checked the throttle and then plugged everything back in AND... still in limp mode.
Had it towed to a dealership service center and they tell me that my PCM is bad and will cost $1200 to replace. I'm worried that they are curing a symptom and not addressing the actual problem... How would I know?

Loud Clicking and popping from my front suspension. It starts when I first take off and then stops after 5 mins. We just moved to a area that has a lot of speed bumps. So the sound started after a few weeks.Suspension seems to be working but when I go over a speed bump or pothole and hit the breaks at the same time it feels like I am hydroplane, like the breaks lock up. Breaks are new and have been checked already with no concern.

got stuck in ice storm, and now traction control light stays on, and my steering feels funny and my tires squeal when turning even at low speeds.

Jeep is a 2.0 6 speed automatic.
Replaced trans twice reprogrammed it . Had it flash . If I could post a video of what it is doing I would . This happens 3rd 4th 5th 6th gear .

I was driving at 50mph and my car engine stalled, the check engine light came on, I put it in park and restarted it. This is the second time it has happened in 2 weeks.

Any idea on cost if it is a rocker arm?

Since I don't have remote start would I Still have an WCM (wireless Control Module) ? I would think not. My Jeep has just started the "One click then no start". I've read a lot of forums, and most times they say in the end that it was the WCM. So if I don't have one, any clues what to look at next? Anyone else ever have this problem? If so, any remedies? Thanks in advance.

The CD player and Aux plugins both work fine. Anyone else ever have this problem? If so, any remedies? Thanks in advance.

Have had this jeep about 18 months.Now you have to keep turning the key to get it to crank,. (but not all the time)Then when going down road it starts cutting out then loosing power. my warrenty has run out so they wont fix it But anyway they did tell me might be battery bad cell, what do yall think? I put the higher price gas in it did not help.. Im afraid it will shut down and I will get hit.. Thank you

Just brought in in for a check/tune. Mechanic is very thorough and very good (great reputation!). Changed a bearing in the left front wheel, recharged A/C, and checked hoses and transmission oil (very clean!)There are no "check engine" lights. We are leaving on a trip from Louisiana to Tennessee Monday and wife is a little antsy. It's either more pronounced at lower speeds or maybe I can just hear it. Engine doesn't seem to be straining and is shifting properly. Any ideas as to what would be causing this whining noise? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Oh, I don't pull anything and It has about 108k miles!

Whenever its hot outside there is a bad smell that seems to be coming from behind the glove compartment area and we've replaced the cabin air filter.

Service dept does not answer phone, or return calls in a timely fashion. Cannot give a completion date.
