Hi.....
Your car is a AWD.. I don't recomend Dually truck to tow it. With a dually 2 tires will stay on the road. and you have no choice to desengage the AWD. system.
Bucause you will damage the Transfercase. and made the transsmission. work dry.
The best way is a Flat bed.
Is just my suggestion.

Thank you for use fixya..

Do I have to disassemble the drive line to tow a 1990 Isuzu P'up on a tow dolly?


if its not AWD, or in 4WD then no, just ensure its in neutral, or you can tow it from the back, just lock the steering wheel, tie the seat belt around it afterwards. We used to do it all the time. It also depends on how far you are towing the vehicle.

How do i tow a 1984 jaguar xj6


On a flat bed tow truck. You could use a tow bar and remove the driveshaft. But because of the weight and power steering being stiff without the engine running, I would suggest you rent a trailer with brakes. Don't cheap out and rent a towing dolly that only holds one axle off the ground as Jag's sit low to the ground and are rear wheel drive, meaning the rear wheels would have to be on the dolly and the fronts on the ground. You would risk damaging the steering, front suspension, engine sump, radiator, and front bumper.

Hello--- can I tow a 2000 AWD volvo wagon with a dolly? Thanks!


Um...no...in order to tow you need rated tow-cable or shock absorbing chains or a tow hitch. you would also need hazard lights that also show which way the towed vehicle is turning (ppl cant see the towing car's turn signals) usually there are magetics ones that hook up to the towing cars trailer light system.
Safe towing by LAW is the issue here...could you tow it with a dolly...yes...but is it against the law..YES and the LAW protects you from hurting yourself,others, and property.
I hope this answers your question. and please be safe. (dont do it)

Towing and alligment problem, relation


Most likely the tow company hooked up the chains wrong when towing your car. Was this a flatbed tow truck or the two wheel dolly that only lifts up the front of your car? If the tow truck was a flatbed then when the car was pulled onto it the chains were probably hooked up wrong and a lower control arm got bent which would create your car to pull when driving. If it was a dolly type and the e-brake was left on then one of your tires has a flat spot and could be creating a radial pull. Take the vehicle to a repair shop that does free alignment checks and ask them to inspect the suspension for damage/ bent parts that could have been created by a tow chain.
