1986 Jeep Cherokee Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Jeep's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use 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 it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Cherokee's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Jeep Cherokee’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Jeep, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
