How to drop the drive shaft 2006 kia sportage not LX v6 4wd and 2wd push button for 4wd have tow dolly want to put front wheels on dolly any problems with doing that thank you


This is what I would do; Drive it on to dolly. Secure the front tires to the dolly have it ready to tow. Go under the Sportage remove the 4 nuts and bolts attaching the drive shaft to the rear differential. Disconnect the drive shaft and ziptie it to the chassis above rear differential. Leaving the front of the drive shaft in the transmission will prevent it leaking trans fluid. Ready to go!

I am planning to drive from Dallas to Madison and will be towing the 2000 Catera. Do I just put the car in neutral? Are there any issues with towing this car, i.e. overheating the transmission? Thanks,...


Hi, you should rent a tow dolly from U-Haul. Pulling with a tow bar in neutral that far will most likely mess up the transmmission. If it front wheel drive a dolly will do, no need for a full trailer. U-Haul will ask for car specs and give you the correct device. I've used them, costs about $100 per 350 miles, or the like.......Mike

How do you put a 2001 dodge durango in neutral to dolly tow it. I know to put the transfer case in neutral but can't seem to shift the transfer case into neutral, 4h and 4L and awd shift


If your going to put the front wheels on a dolly then it won't matter whether or not the front end is in neutral,if the rear is going to be lifted then it is a good idea to remove the drive shaft,this will keep the transmission from turning.

Can I tow a 2000 Nissan Altima front wheel drive manual transmition with my RV?


Yes but I would use a dolly to do it. The problem is the possibility of the car dropping into gear. Also it is not recommended that you tow a Front wheel drive vehicle with the wheels on the ground. You could damage the transmission. U-Haul and a Number of other rental locations rent a Wheel hopper dolly. This puts the 2 front wheels on the dolly to be towed. It is relatively cheap and will save you damage to the vehicle.

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.
