Change the fluid in the transfer case and retest, I recommend you use synthetic fluid, cost more works great and last nearly the life of the vehicle.

SOURCE: Can't tow a 1993 Cherokee Country 4 down.

The easyest and cheapest way is to remove the drive shafts if its an automatic. If its a standard shift, you don't have to do anything but put everything in netural. I don't know of anything you you can chg. to do what you want.

SOURCE: transfer case neutral position

this is clearly stated in the operators guide.
lost that so soon?
is the the 4wd option car? acutally allwheel drive. AWD
the question is for the non awd is if the transmission
can lubricate its axle gears, being towed.
and AWD all 4 wheels.
lost the manual, and 1st google hit is here.

the page essentials says, yes, 2wd, no AWD.

pretty clear, even pictures of all ways right and wrong.

I have a Suzuki Jimmy manual 4x4 year 2002 can I flat tow it on a Aframe behind a motorhome


welcome to USA forum
the country with not ONE< JIMNY,
but i can answer
there are 4 ways to tow this is but 1.
backwards towing is best way or drop rear drive shaft (ask)
flat tow 101:
the Jimny is SJ413 here,called Samurai.
the transfer case sets this rule (most rear device)
that rules is dont flat tow it, more that 200 miles
the rear bearing has no lube actions towed
here is the near same transmissions.

and rules (of xfr case)
ill quote my 2001 Vitara, (same setup.)

Follow these steps:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Shift your automatic transmission into PARK (P), or
your manual transmission to SECOND (2).
3. With the ignition key in the ON position, move the
transfer case to NEUTRAL and make sure the 4WD
light on the instrument panel cluster is off. See
"Four-Wheel Drive" in the Index.
4. Turn the ignition key to ACC to unlock the
steering wheel.
5. Release the parking brake
If you tow your four-wheel-drive vehicle from
the front, make sure to move the transfer case
into NEUTRAL or your vehicle could be badly
damaged and the damage would not be covered
by your warranty.
Stop towing every 200 miles (300 km) and start the
engine. Leave the transfer case shift lever in
NEUTRAL. Shift your automatic transmission to
DRIVE (D); leave a manual transmission in
SECOND (2) with the clutch engaged. Run the engine at
medium speed for one minute to circulate oil in the
transfer case. Turn the ignition key to ACC. Now, you
can continue towing your vehicle.
The front wheels transmit shocks during towing.
The steering column may not be strong enough to
withstand the shocks. Always unlock the steering
wheel before towing.
Make sure that the towing speed does not
exceed 50 mph (80 km/h), or your vehicle could
be badly damaged
end direct quote operators guide .....
got that?

not how the 5speed box is in 2nd.
this is to keep it from spinning, and its rear bearing damaged.
there are 2 bearings to worry the rear 5sp and rear transfer case.

on ours, we use an electric oil'er pump added to transfer case.
unlimited tow. (wires power feed from RV via coupler.)
or the drives shaft decoupling device, (not cheap)
or we drop the rear, of prop shaft, and tie up the rear up high
so it cant drop nor let it fall of rear of transfer cases
we use bunji cords, for up,
and then pull the front,
if the prop shaft falls out, you will lose GL4 gear lube out rear
of the transfer case. it falls out so very easy, off that spine.
there are all ways flat,
done them all.,

I have a 1990 Chevy Suburban 1500 4X4 with a 700r4 and it just will not go in to drive or reverse in 2wheel drive but when in 4wheel drive it moves in drive but it does move at all in reverse. What is...


Transfer case is bad. My first guess. If the transmission were bad it wouldn't move at any position. Is there any noise? You have 4 possibilities, Front and rear differentials, transfer case, and the transmission.

Shifter damage from tow truck driver


call the garage and ask if a flatbed was used or boom style..why was the car towed in the first place??if it was done by cops.. the tow company will not fix it BUT you can get a decent garage to fix it and send the bill to the towyard that screwed it up..I hate when a towyard.. especially one that excusively tows for law enforcement..screws up cars .. we had a 4wd subaru that was towed without a flatbed..it mbroke the transfer case and subsequently destroyed the car..we fought the tow company for 3 years but finally won..it costs nearly 3000 bucks for a 500 dollar car to proove a point..

2000 Isuzu lost accelerating power going about 55 car was still running just wouldn't go coasted to side of road and had to be towed. it wouldn't go into any gears after that. when I try to start sounds...


After reading your question and the suggested solutions. Many believe it is an electrical problem, but your Trooper didn't come as a diesel and you said the engine was running and you said it wouldn't go into any gear. You heard something turning until you turned it off.
If you have a manual transmission:
If the clutch wouldn't allow you to shift into any gear but neutral then there are teeth broken in the transmission that won't allow the synchros to line the gears with the spinning input shaft from the clutch disc.
Or it could be that the clutch itself is damaged.
If you can put it into any gear and still nothing, look under the vehicle and look to see if the entire drive shaft is turning. If it is, put it into neutral, place the transfer case into 4 wheel drive and place the transmission into 1st gear. If it begins to move forward, STOP!!! Your rear axle pinion or ring gear is severely damaged. If it doesn't move, then the transfer case is also broken.
If the drive shaft is not spinning, again, put it into 4 wheel drive again and see if it moves. If it doesn't, it is the transfer case, if it does, check to see if any of the U-Joints are broken.

For an automatic transmission:
If you can't take it out of park it's the transmission.
If you can put it into reverse, Drive, or any lower gear it could be the torque converter or the transmission. If you hear a clunk when it is in gear but nothing happens, put your foot on the brake and have someone else look under the vehicle to see if the drive shaft is spinning. Yes means the rear ring and pinion is destroyed. If it isn't, then place the vehicle into neutral and push the 4WD/4WD Auto button and place it back into drive. If it moves forward check for broken u-joints, if it doesn't, then it's the transfer case.

If any of the above have diagnosed the problem and you are unfamiliar with repairing drivetrains, then have it towed on a flatbed tow truck to a company that specializes in transmissions and drivetrains. Get a quote to repair it. If repairing it is worth more than the actual value of the vehicle itself then you now have a parts vehicle.
Always check your options to repair the damage, sometimes replacing the entire component (transmission, transfer case, or axle) then you can replace it with a used one that works from the junk yard and replace it. Sometimes you can get a parts car for less than buying a junk yard component, make sure that the part car doesn't have the same problem. If it is more economical to repair, then you just got lucky.

Can a 1998 4x4 S-10 blazer be dinghy towed?


Yes it can, just place your Transfer Case in Neutral position.
Shifting into NEUTRAL
To shift the transfer case to NEUTRAL do the following:

Make sure the vehicle is parked so that it will not roll.
Set the parking brake.
Start the vehicle or turn the ignition to RUN.
Connect the vehicle to the towing vehicle.
Put the transmission in NEUTRAL (N).
Shift the transfer case to 2HI.
Simultaneously press and hold the 2HI and 4LO buttons for 10 seconds. The red NEUTRAL light will come on when the transfer case shift to NEUTRAL is complete.
Shift the transmission to REVERSE (R) for one second, then shift the transmission to DRIVE (D) for one second, or FIRST (1) for vehicles equipped with a manual transmission.
Turn the ignition to LOCK.
Place the transmission shift lever in PARK (P), or FIRST (1) for vehicles with a manual transmission.
Release the parking brake prior to towing.

Shifting Out of NEUTRAL
To shift out of NEUTRAL:

Set the parking brake and apply the regular brake pedal.
Shift the transmission to NEUTRAL (N) and turn the ignition to RUN with the engine off.
Press the button for the desired transfer case shift position (2HI, 4HI, AUTO 4WD or 4LO).
After the transfer case has shifted out of NEUTRAL the red light will go out.
Release the parking brake.
You may start the engine and shift the transmission to the desired position.
Excessively shifting the transfer case into or out of the different modes may cause the transfer case to enter the shift protection mode. This will protect the transfer case from possible damage and will only allow the transfer case to respond to one shift per 10 seconds. The transfer case may stay in this mode for up to three minutes.

NEUTRAL: Shift the vehicle's transfer case to NEUTRAL only when towing your vehicle.
Good luck and hope this answers your question.

Jeep Wrangler 1998 straight drive has difficult times going into reverse gear. I don't drive it every day,usually towing it behind my RV. It seems better when I drive it more,but is still difficult to...


if this is a 5 speed manual transmission...all you need to do before putting your jeep into reverese is puting it into first gear and then shifting it to reverse to avoid any grinding or problems shifting into reverse...this isn't a problem just a poor jeep design by not installing an extra gear to eliminate this grinding or shifting problem
