1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Questions & Answers

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Jeep? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Grand Cherokee towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Grand Cherokee is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Grand Cherokee's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1997 Grand Cherokee’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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.
