They're often easy to notice. Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Grand Cherokee at all.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Jeep? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Jeep Grand Cherokee? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Grand Cherokee’s towing capacity. 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? Caring for your Jeep Grand Cherokee’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
