What’s the Importance of Your 2003 Wrangler’s Transmission?

Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Jeep Wrangler transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Jeep Wrangler transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Wrangler’s not even driveable.

2003 Jeep Wrangler Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Wrangler towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Wrangler's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Jeep Wrangler’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Jeep, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
