2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Drivetrain Service

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Grand Cherokee's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Jeep, from back to front. It’s one of your Grand Cherokee’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Jeep's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
