Questions About 1985 Jeep J10’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 I tow in a Jeep J10? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your J10 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my J10's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Jeep J10’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
