Questions About 1983 Jeep Cherokee’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Jeep's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Jeep Cherokee? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Cherokee’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Cherokee transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Jeep Cherokee transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Jeep's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
