Why is Your 2001 Cherokee’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed.

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Jeep Cherokee transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Jeep Cherokee transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Cherokee isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2001 Jeep Cherokee’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Jeep? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Jeep? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 Cherokee’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
