1985 Jeep Cherokee Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Jeep's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Cherokee’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Cherokee is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Cherokee's transmission fluid need to be inspected? 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
