1986 Jeep Wagoneer Questions & Answers

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Jeep tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Wagoneer’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Wagoneer is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Wagoneer's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1986 Wagoneer’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
