They're often easy to notice. 1988 Jeep Wagoneer transmission problems could include shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Jeep Wagoneer transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Wagoneer’s not even driveable.

1988 Jeep Wagoneer Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Jeep's brakes? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Jeep? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, 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.
  • How often does my Wagoneer transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Jeep Wagoneer’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
