1998 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. 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Wrangler towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
