O My! You drove off a tow truck. Why?? Not a lot of info, but here goes! Jack the car up and turn the wheel. You may find something stuck in the tire. Be sure to block the wheels on the other side! Frankster016

Is there any possibility that anything done during alternator replacement that might cause the car to remain in 1st gear and only go 20-25 mph? Like maybe something was not reconnected or something?

anything is possible when dealing with electronics
many modern cars have the voltage regulator as part of the ECM so when replacing an alternator , any touching or arcing or disconnecting the battery could cause a problem in the ECM
what you describe is the system is in limp mode and that is generated by either engine or transmission problems that activate when either or both are in a position to cost money to repair and are preventable
So yes , incorrect towing procedure could activate the limp mode from the TCM in the transmission
What your friend should be doing is running the fault codes to determine the reason that the limp mode was activated
if there are no codes , reset the system and run the vehicle around the block and then read the codes again
fix what is found
if it is damage from the tow operation send them the account as they are directly responsible for the damage from incorrect tow operation
as an after though here , in my country, such tow operations no longer exist as modern vehicles can no longer be towed in this manner because of the safety collapsible panels in the front and rear , so all vehicle recovery is done by tilt tray trucks Where you are and it should happen again to you or friends , always insist on a tilt tray truck operator

My 2004 Yukon left rear wheel has a clicking noise coming from it sometimes, usually when at freeway speeds, but comes and goes. It is becoming louder and more frequently. Now the service tire monitor...

sometimes you can get a stone etc in there and sits in the bottom running round, it could also be the adjuster is out of place could be the retaining plate pin has come lose. for the parking brake. just remove and fix. you may find it hard to remove the disc/parking disc. so back off the cable, and tap it off, youtube has videos on removing the disc etc.

I put my spare tire on the left front of my MPG, when I drove it it made all kinds of noise, I moved the spare to the rear and all the noise went away, so you know what may have caused the noise, also when...

sounds like the spare is not the correct one for the car and was rubbing on the front brake caliper, wrong rim. on rear brakes it probably is drum brakes and that in not affected by the wrong rim.

Clicking sound coming from the driver's side rear by the tire

Remove the rear rotors to check the emergency brake pads. The rivets can rust and the pads will slide around. They will click at slow speeds. Drove me crazy for weeks.
