It really doesn't matter because the front wheels have to be off of the ground to tow this vehicle if it has an automatic.
You can not flat tow this vehicle because the pump will not be working in the transmission and will burn it up because there will be no fluid flowing.

Can I flat tow a 2001 Ford Taurus car behind my RV


If it is a stick shift this may be fine, but if an automatic, the transmission may require that you run a transmission cooler while you are towing. I'm not really sure about how your Ford is set up though, so please seek more advice than mine. I just know there can be issues on FWD cars with automatics.

Why 2003 ford focus doesnt stay in 4th gear it shifts back into neutral?


Automatic or manual?
If automatic, the problem can be caused by several things and electronic diagnosis may be required. Often , the gear selector switch/connection is faulty. Of it could be caused by the solenoid valve pack in the transmission.

If a manual, gear selector linkage mis-adjusted, OR defective gear set kicking it out of gear.

Just wondering if an automatic ford focus 1.6 can be towed. What damage could this do to the car?


Its best to tow with the front wheel off the ground to prevent excessive wear on the drivetrain. No damage will be done to the rear wheels other than normal wear and tear on the tires and bearings.

My ford focus tdi 2003 cant select 1st,3rd or 5th gears.


Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.
