1995 geo tracker 5 speed automatic 4x4

We bought a 1995 geo tracker to pull behind a motorhome, it is a 5 speed automatic 4x4, when we were looking at it we noticed the right front tire was wore unevenly but just thought it needed an allignment, it came with an attached roadmaster 118-1 towbar brackets and a stowmaster 5000 towbar so we hooked it up to our chevy pickup and pulled it about 100 miles to our house, we did what the seller told us to do...put transmission in neutral, 4x4 in neutral and turn the igintion key on so the sterring whell was free......when we got home the left front tire was really wore down and it looked like a new tire before, really tore up.....we pulled it around our yard and the tires jump and hop and do not steer straight like they are really fighting the car.....we do not know what to do and are worried that the seller did not know how to pull it himself and tore somthing up before we bought it....i have been trying to research this but it is so confusing....the car drives great and handles good when we are driving it...but acts weird when towed and at this rate i cannot afford the tires it chews up....can you help me ????

Wow, you have a 4wd car and dont know how to service it.!

first before you tow any old 95 car around,
you need to be sure
the locking hubs are free, if autolocks ,trash them they are no good for this usage. manual hubs set to FREE position.
they must not be corroded and must unlock.
the wheel bearings must not be ignored, get them greased.
they do come out , ignore idiots who post here and say other wise.
it takes a special tool to remove the bearing locking nut rings.
next make darn sure the brakes are not dragging.

last a dead strut can make a wheel bounce. so check them too.

here is an owners manual, suzuki will give you one for free any time you ask (safety rules )

please read all of chapter 8, towing. gee my gosh.\

5 ways to tow, not sure yours. only you know. see the book.

i guess you are method B and as you stated , you had it wrong.
tranny is PARKED, Xfr case in N.

and that is a 4speed not 5.

ok that is all the issues, in one post , hope i landed on yours so we can all be safe on the road.

Maybe your motor home exceeds the trackers towing capacity and it wears down the tires? Just a suggestion- I'm no mechanic

Automatic 4x4 will not kick in on 1997 geo tracker

in?
you mean you engage 4H or 4L and it does something odd?
btw, this is part time 4wd and is not AWD.
never use it on ice free pavement. it has no center differential.
are you on pavement (that is the first question)
2nd is, what in on the surface of said pavement.
nothing, ? or just water?
if you it wrong, you will wind it up like this.

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.
