1986 Jeep J10 Transmission Service & Repairs

What’s the Importance of Your 1986 J10’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your J10’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Jeep J10 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 J10 transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your J10 isn’t working at all.

Questions About 1986 Jeep J10’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Jeep? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Jeep tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a 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. 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 J10 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Jeep J10’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
