Transmission Services for 1989 Jeep Wrangler

What Does Your Jeep Wrangler Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Wrangler’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Jeep Wrangler transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Jeep Wrangler transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Wrangler at all.

Questions About 1989 Jeep Wrangler’s Transmission

  • How much can my Jeep tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Wrangler towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Wrangler's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Jeep Wrangler’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
