2016 Jeep Compass Transmission Service

What Does Your Jeep Compass 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 Compass’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Jeep Compass transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Jeep Compass transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Compass’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2016 Jeep Compass’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Jeep? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Compass towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Compass is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Compass transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2016 Compass’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.
