Question about 2002 Pontiac Aztek

Can a 2002 pontiac aztec be used as a tow dingy behind a motorhom

We purchased a 2002 Pontiac Aztec as a tow dingy behind our motorhome and now we are not sure if that can work or what we would have to do to make it work. It is all wheel drive and automatic and the owners manual doesn't recommend it. Do you have any solutions? Thanks.

Do not tow it with any wheels on the ground it will burn up the trans and transfer case. If you use a dolly on the front remove the rear driveshaft.

It would be best to trailer it because of the all wheel drive. Or find a different vehicle.

What car parts interchange with a 2002 Pontiac Aztec?


Aztec was derived from the line of GM minivans. Many mechanical parts are interchangeable with Pontiac Montana, Chevy Venture and Olds Silhouette of that vintage. Obviously the sheetmetal is, I would say, unique.

Towing car behind rv motorhome


Should be okay if you use a tow dolly. This means you drive the front wheels up on the tow dolly and strap the tires down. The rear wheels are like trailer tires and should roll as if they do when driven.

I own a 2006 Duramax Diesel 2500, with Allison Transmission and would like to know if I can tow this truck behind a Motorhome? Is there anything special I need to do?


Sounds like you should tow the motorhome with the 2500!!

seriously though, if it's a 4X4 make sure the front axle is not engaged, otherwise just make sure tranny is in neutral

just to be safe, check OM or nearest Allison warranty shop for advice

I'd be more worried about the motorhome drivetrain pulling that beast.....

We have an 2002 Aztec 3.4 litres engine, never a problem with it since we purchased it new in late 2001 until recently while pulling a trailer it blew the head gasket.


very common, we see head gaskets and cracked cylinder heads all the time, they do offer a heavy duty radiator for this van it would be a good idea if you are going to tow with this van.

Can you dingy tow a 1999 gmc jimmy behind a motorhome!


Yes, but you have to either leave the engine idling or use trailer. GM transmissions get lubrication from the INPUT side of the unit, and there is no lubrication with engine off, you will cause damage.

You can also trailer, or release axle shafts...A pain, but less costly than fried trans....

How do i tow a 2006 mazda6 behind a motorhome


You'll have to put it on a dolly. Automatic transmissions do not take kindly to being towed because they don't get lubricated. The oil pump in an automatic trans runs off the input shaft, so the engine has to be running. Hope this helps.
