2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • How much can my Jeep tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Grand Cherokee towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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 Grand Cherokee transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 Grand 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.
