2021 Jeep Cherokee Transmission Service

Why is Your 2021 Cherokee’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Cherokee’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Jeep Cherokee transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Jeep Cherokee transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Cherokee isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2021 Jeep Cherokee’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Jeep's brakes? 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.
  • 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 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.
  • How often does my Cherokee transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2021 Cherokee’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
