If you tow your car in neutral how come is stuck on one gear. Towing got no problems. That mean it wasnt in neutral it was in gear but the clutch is stuck and seem the gear is in neutral. You should have clutch problem before you think about gear box.

Hi if the gear is stuck on gear they are two option there. First one maybe your clutch kit give up. Or something wrong with your gearbox. If the car is not idling try to take that gear of first normarly it should come off. If not remove your gear box to find out if the problem is the clutch or your gearbox.

I have a 2003 chevy S-10 4x4 crew cab we are wanting to tow behind a motor home. I was wondering how you can put the transfer case into neutral, so we dont have to car dolly it everywhere?


Some customers may want to tow their vehicle behind another vehicle with all FOUR tires on the ground. This is referred to as "dinghy" towing.
Towing in this manner is acceptable only on the certain vehicles. The vehicle should be properly equipped and prepared as described below.
The passenger cars listed above are the vehicles that CAN be dinghy towed. Passenger cars not listed above are vehicles where dinghy towing is not permitted or recommended.
Certain 4WD trucks can be dinghy towed depending on the transfer case option. Rear wheel drive and AWD trucks should NOT be dinghy towed. Refer to the truck models and transfer case options below.
Please refer to the applicable vehicle Owner's Manual before towing.
Passenger Cars Notice: These vehicles must not be towed backwards or transmission damage may occur.

Important: The towing speed as stated in the Owner's Manual should not exceed 104 km/h (65 mph) for 1995-2005 vehicles.
In order to properly dinghy tow the vehicle, follow these steps:
  1. Firmly set the parking brake.
  2. Open the fuse panel and pull the fuse(s) indicated in the Owner's Manual section detailing towing your vehicle. This prevents the instrument panel (IP) and/or electronic PRNDL indicator from draining the battery.
  3. Securely attach the vehicle to the tow vehicle.
  4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position, which is one position forward of LOCK. Unlocking the steering column allows for proper movement of the front wheels and tires during towing.
  5. For 1997-1999 Cutlass, 1997-2003 Malibu, 2004-2006 Chevrolet Classic and 1999-2004 Alero/Grand Am models, turn the ignition switch to the accessory (ACC) position, which is one position forward of OFF. This position unlocks the transaxle.
  6. Shift the transmission to Neutral (N).
  7. Notice: Use extra care whenever towing another vehicle. Do not exceed the towing vehicle's gross combination weight (GCW) by adding the weight of the dinghy towed vehicle or vehicle damage may result.
  8. When the vehicle being towed is firmly attached to the tow vehicle, release the parking brake.
  9. Replace the fuse(s) in the fuse panel when finished towing.

If you're using a tow bar or front wheel dolly, yes, remove the drive shaft for a good distance drive.

I have automatic 2001 Ford Explorer sport trac bought from USA, the car did not run since i received it because it does not move when i put the level to D nor R position.


What you can try is to start the vehicle, put it in Neutral, press on the brake, and while doing that press the 4x4 Button and hold it for 5 seconds. If this does not help, you will need an Owners Manual for Year specific information.

You want to reset your Transfer case from being towed to Run. It sounds like your unit was switched to the current Mode for transit. Another idea is to contact the Tow company who delivered it for advice on this setting. Even if you used a Tow dolly yourself, I imagine the towtruck drivers would need to know how to switch this setting when they tow an Explorer themselves.

This Tow mode is used to enable towing the SUV behind a Motorhome. The Automatic transmissions need lubricant on the seals or they will burn up. The Tow mode disengages the Transfer case and keeps some of the parts from turning. You need to look at Year specific information because of the difference in Automatic transmissions. For a short time, there were engine options which included a different transmission for better mileage with bigger engines.

The older models needed a Tow dolly and the newer models can just use a Tow bar on the frame.
I hope my opening statement fixed your problem. Should you want to Tow your SUV behind another vehicle, you will need to use the Tow feature.

Is the lancer towable behind moterhome


No vehicle is really towable with all four wheels on the surface. It is best to have a front wheel dolly trailer that the front wheels set on strapped down to tow by. The axles are freely moving if the tires are all on the surface creating a harsh wear to the transmission. The transmission is a hydralic pump as you may know & if the axles are moving for a long distance some parts inside the transmission will be fluxuating as you travel. Many vehicle end up at a transmission shop where I am at with some sort of drivability problem since they have been towed for a long distance. Usually inside your owns manual they will have a section on towing. I would read that section if you have the manual

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.
