Why is Your 1997 Wrangler’s Transmission So Important?

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. They're often easy to notice. Jeep Wrangler transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Jeep Wrangler transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Wrangler’s not even driveable.

1997 Jeep Wrangler Transmission Q&A

  • 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Jeep Wrangler? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. 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 Wrangler is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
