You have a Jatco CVT that calls for Mopar CVTF+4. Valvoline CVT fluid meets this spec: http://www.valvoline.com/our-products/automatic-transmission-products/continuously-variable

There isn't a dipstick, you need a fancy scan tool to find out the level.

My mom has a 2012 Patriot and we had the dealer change the fluid, was about $170 or so.

My mom's was underfilled from the factory, and these are really picky I guess.

Autozone sells a kit as well. Did the job for a neighbor a few months ago. It was 7.5 qts with the pan drop.

Sometimes Valvoline CVT fluid can be had cheaper by the 6 or 12 pack by mail-order online. I know the stuff is hard to find locally in areas. I'm sure that 10yr/old ~90K mile Patriot is in serious need for a CVT juice change.. Atleast by BITOG standards.
