Usually, if a car is FWD, you can put it on a tow dolly. Unfortunately, REMCO towing doesn't have any information on this vehicle for me to be able to help you.

Sorry!

Keyless entry stopped working for both sets of remotes...what could this be and how do I diagnose and fix the problem for my 2003 Jaguar X-type 2.5 AWD.


Get the batteries replaced in the remotes. AutoZones ussually have RF meters to check the remotes for you but the cause most of the time is the battery. Their life span ussually does not pass 5 years. Good luck

We have a motor home we want to tow our 2008 Rouge Nissan AWD is it safe or what has to be done to it to avoid problems. We want to tow on all 4 wheels.


first thing is you have to know the weight of the motorhome..and you must know the towing capacity of the nissan..

but if and when you decide to tow the motor home always keep in mind .especilly if you have never towed anything like that before.That when big trucks pass you the trailer will want to sway back and forth.so always keep that in mind.....and safe driving....

Do you tow a 2003 jaguar x type from the front or rear?


Raise the drive wheels,in any towing job you need to lift the wheels that drive the car,your car,i would say would be the rear.

Can I tow a 2003 Suzuki LX7 with an automatic transmission?


Hi,

Only the 4WD version is 'flat towable' - if yours is the front wheel drive version you will need a dolly as special equipment to prevent damage occuring to the transmission. Towing Auto vehicles is not really advisable in my opinion and unless it is specifically stated in the specification of the manufacturers handbook it is best avoided.

However you may want to check out this link which provides a list of towable pickups and SUVs that is updated each year. You can also find their list of towable vehicles from previous years there as well. These are vehicles that are factory approved by their manufacturers for towing behind a motorhome. Some vehicles such as the XL-7 require special procedures which must be followed, including speed and distance limitations.

For example, the 4WD version of the XL-7 requires special care to be taken every 200 miles in order to avoid the potential of transmission damage.

See link for more info


Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Can you flat tow a 2007 Lincoln MKX?


The 2007 Lincoln MKX is definitely towable "4 down". According to the owners manual: The ignition switch needs to be in the accessory position (position 2 of the 4 possible positions) so that the steering wheel is able to turn to let the front wheels track the towing vehicle. The transmission needs to be in "N" so that the engine's disconnected. The parking brake needs to be off, and the engine should be run for 5 minutes before starting out and "at fuel stops". This makes the vehicle a good vehicle to tow along with you behind your motorhome. The folks at Blue Ox make an excellent tow "baseplate" that is practically invisible yet hooks up easily to the motorhome. The BX2192 package is made specifically for the '07 to '10 MKX. It works beautifully with my '07!
