1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Questions & Answers

  • 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. 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. Defying your Grand Wagoneer towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Grand Wagoneer is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Grand Wagoneer transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Jeep Grand Wagoneer’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
