2021 Jeep Gladiator Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 I tow in a Jeep Gladiator? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Gladiator’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Gladiator's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Jeep Gladiator 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can my Jeep Gladiator leak transmission fluid? Yes. Jeep Gladiator transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.
  • Who can fix my  Jeep Gladiator transmission leak? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care can troubleshoot and repair Gladiator transmission systems. Book an appointment online today.
  • Can I still drive my Jeep Gladiator if it has a transmission fluid leak? Driving your Gladiator with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
