How do i know if my car is in all wheel drive


If your car is an "All Wheel Drive" or "AWD" model, it is always in all wheel drive, there is no choice to take it out of all wheel drive. But if it is a "Four Wheel Drive" There will be a lever on the floor, or a button on the dash that you have to activate to get into four wheel drive. Usually for the latter there will be a light next to the four wheel button.

So, if on the back of your car says "Equinox AWD" it is always in four wheel drive.

Towing capacity of 91 chevy


It depends on if it is an automatic or manual, 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive, but I would say no more than 5,000 lbs. just to be on the safe side

I have heard you can remove a fuse to disable AWD and improve mpg when AWD is not needed. Is there any truth to this?


I have a 1997 Subaru Outback Limited wagon. I was having major issues with torque binding but didn't have $1k to fix it, so I called a couple of local Subaru dealers and asked their in-house mechanic if there was any issue with putting the fuse in to override it into FWD... both said no. They both said there was no safety issue, nor would it do any type of damage to the car. They said the only issue is that it might wear out the C-Duty Solenoid faster than usual. One of the mechanics said it might happen in 5 days... might be 5wks... might be 5mos or even 5 years... no way of knowing. It was just the luck of the draw.

I've now had it in FWD mode for almost 11mos and there hasn't been an issue one.

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.

1998 Windstar w/o tow package need solution to increase tow capacity


You may be getting into a very dangerous situation. You definitely need a tranny cooler, a brake controller installed in your van, electric brakes on all wheels of whatever u r towing, an oil cooler (engine), and u still may be in big trouble. Factory towing packages usually include heavy duty brakes, alternator, heavy duty suspension, bigger tires, sway bars, etc. So even w/ some add-ons u still won't match a factory set up, meaning u shouldn't tow that much weight. Check out edmonds.com/ownership/howto/articles/44921/page001.html for more info, be careful, and good luck, countrycurt0
