1986 Jeep J20 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Jeep's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Jeep? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your J20’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your J20 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my J20's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Jeep J20’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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.
