1987 Jeep J10 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Jeep? 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. 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? Maintaining your Jeep J10 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Jeep, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
