Questions About 1983 Jeep CJ7’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Jeep's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Jeep? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your CJ7 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your CJ7 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my CJ7 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Jeep CJ7 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can my Jeep CJ7 leak transmission fluid? Yes, your Jeep CJ7 can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your CJ7 ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.
  • Where can I get my  Jeep CJ7 transmission fixed? When your CJ7 transmission is acting up, Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to help. Book an appointment today for transmission system diagnostics and repairs.
  • Should I avoid driving my Jeep CJ7 if there is a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your CJ7 to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
