Common Transmission Issues In Jeeps

Counting on your Jeep to get you to point A to point B is the norm for owners. Unfortunately, a Jeep, just like any other vehicle, can have a lot of different problems that an owner needs to be aware of. To begin, a Jeep owner should be able to spot the most common transmission problems that may affect their vehicle. Small transmission problems can spiral out of control in cost and repairs when left for too long without resolution. The transmission is one of the most important aspects of any vehicle, so it should be well maintained by an owner. Any time an old or worn out aspect of the transmission needs to be replaced, it should only be completed with an OEM Jeep part to ensure reliability. 

Every vehicle utilizes the transmission more than any other component. The wear and tear can lead to some very noticeable (or unnoticeable) signs of impending transmission failure. Here is a list of common transmission problems in Jeep vehicles:

  • Check Engine Light: The check engine light is always one of the first notifications that there is a problem with the transmission. The light doesn’t necessarily mean that there is a transmission problem, it just means that the engine needs to be checked. 
  • Unusual Smells: Burning smells might be an indication that fluid levels have fallen below normal and the engine is beginning to overheat.
  • Fluid Leaks: The number one cause of transmission failure is due to leaks. Without sufficient fluid, the engine and moving components cannot cool down properly. 
  • Lack Of Response: Getting in or out of a gear should happen without hesitation for the vehicle. When there is a slight delay, shake, or difficulty in shifting gears, there may be a transmission problem.
