How to drop the drive shaft 2006 kia sportage not LX v6 4wd and 2wd push button for 4wd have tow dolly want to put front wheels on dolly any problems with doing that thank you


This is what I would do; Drive it on to dolly. Secure the front tires to the dolly have it ready to tow. Go under the Sportage remove the 4 nuts and bolts attaching the drive shaft to the rear differential. Disconnect the drive shaft and ziptie it to the chassis above rear differential. Leaving the front of the drive shaft in the transmission will prevent it leaking trans fluid. Ready to go!

Towing an automatic \trany for a distance how far can an automatic trany be towed safetly


I wouldn't tow it at all if the trans is in any way turning

Need a dolly if front wheel drive
They can't be towed if it has a transaxle,
which is about every vehicle these days

Rear drive you may get away with 100 miles
Better to remove the drive shaft or put transfer
in neutral

Transmissions have a tough time seeing 100,000

miles under best of conditions

How do you disconnect the driveshaft on a 1988 chrysler new yorker in order to tow it on a tow dolly?


this year of chrysler cars are front wheel drive.if you towing is tow it with the front wheels on the dolly as the rear wheels are free wheeling and don`t turn anything but themselves and their own bearings.

Can you tow bravado with tow dolly


as long as the drive wheels are off the ground. So, if rear wheel drive, the rear wheels must be off the ground.
If front wheel drive, the front wheels must be on a dolly.
If all wheel drive, all 4 wheels mst be off the ground.

I am looking for something to tow behind my motorhome. I have found a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport automatic 2WD. Can it be towed 4 wheels down without disconnecting the driveshaft?


2 wheel drive vehicles can be towed with all four whells on the ground for extended distances. Chrysler recommends a max speed of 30 MPH, but I know these vehicles can be towed at higher MPH. The 4x4 model Jeeps are the vehicles that are not recommended to be towed with all for wheels on the ground, but I know this too has also been done, but with drive shaft removal.

Can i tow 94 subaru legacy awd with a tow dolly


Not true. If you have the fuse in place to disconnect the rear wheels it is safe to tow on a dolly. Subaru recommends not more than 40 MPH and only for short distance if it is an automatic. Manual may be towed longer distance. Have a great day.

No!!! Do not tow.
Unless it is a very, very short distance...do not tow. Are there lock out hubs on front? If yes, unlock them, and then remove the rear drive shaft from the rear end. If you can unlock the front hubs, then this will prevent the front differential from turning the front drive shaft to the transfer case. Then you can disconnect the rear drive shaft, and hang it somehow up high against the body so that it will NOT be HIT by the spinning connector yoke on the rear end. Leaving the drive shaft in the transfer case will prevent the loss of oil. BUT......It is critical that it completely clears the spinning yoke on the rear end... or else it will be damaged and may damage other things also. It is also important to remember that as you tow, the vehicle bounces up and down, so there needs to be several inches of clearance between the drive shaft and the connector yoke on the rear end. . If you do not have lock out hubs in the front, then disconnect the front shaft from the front end and hang it also. Use PB Blaster or similar oil to ease the process. If towing on a tow dolly, then you need to only remove the rear shaft. Be careful and make sure that whatever you use to hang the shaft is sturdy.
