Questions About 1998 Jeep Cherokee’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Jeep? 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 a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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.
  • 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.
