Transmission Services for 2018 Jeep Cherokee

What Does Your Jeep Cherokee Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Cherokee’s performance. 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 discover that your Cherokee’s not even driveable.

2018 Jeep Cherokee Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Jeep tow?   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. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • 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. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Jeep. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
