1996 Jeep Cherokee Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Jeep's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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. Defying your Cherokee towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • When should I have my Cherokee's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Jeep Cherokee’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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.
