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!

Automatic shift stuck park


flat towed, in park is not possible
the shift console, has an emergency park lockout, release feature
what is broken, unsaid.??????
the lost operators guide covers both towing rules
and shows that emerg. button location. use it and shift the shifter to neutral.
the front wheels are locked in park.
the problem with flat towing any car are many.
steering lock failure. (locks in motion)
transmission oiling , when the engine is not running the
transmission pump is dead, and oil lube is lacking to many critical areas..
page 163 here covers, the magic switch (emg)
http://www.toyota.com/t3Portal/document/om/OM12656U/pdf/4.pdf

page 160 is tow.
no flat towing.
it can be towed on its rear wheels all day long.

the transmission issues, can be very serious.
do no listen to some dweeb saying gee i towed min 500 miles the wrong way, do not. he never rebuilt a transmission in his life and dont understand how it works deep inside.
page 161,
Never tow a vehicle with an automatic
transmission from the rear with the
front wheels on the ground, as this
may cause serious damage to the
transmission.

page 162, emergancy towed with chains (flat)
short distance with a driver in the seat
in neutral. , ACC position at key switch.
obviously if the key switch parts, are bad, this dont work and would be
very dangerous to all person, in car, towing, and me on the road.

Can I tow a 1996 Grand Caravan on a tow dolly and do the wheels lock as sugested by the tow dolly co.?


The rear wheels on this car are free rolling. With the front wheels up on the tow dolly and secured with the straps provided you should have no problems. Follow the tow dolly instructions such as release the emergency brake, place selector in neutral, and don't drive over 45 mph. You will get to where your going safely. GOOD LUCK.

Towing capacity ?


The Kia Optima does not have a towing capacity. Kia does not recommend towing with any of their cars. CURT does offer a hitch for the Optima. CURT 11216. The class II hitch has a 2,000lb rating on it. As a manufacturer CURT does not suggest exceeding the towing capacity of the Optima (in this case that means not towing at all), but this doesn't mean that you couldn't. If it were me I would if i had to.

I want to tow a kia sportage can I use a tow dolly


If you have a four wheel drive Sportage, you will destroy your transmission by towing the vehicle with the rear wheels on the road and the engine not running. The problem is that the wheels will spin the transmission, causing wear on it since there is no transmission oil flowing while the vehicle engine is not running. You can, however, remove the rear driveshaft from the Sportage and that will allow you to safely use a tow dolly, since the rear wheels will be free spinning.

I want to tow a 1999 Buick Regal behind 2002 Ford Explorer (4.0L V6). I am thinking of using a tow bar. Tow is 1,100 miles - one time. See any problems? What tow bar would you suggest?


Not a good plan. Rent a car dolly from u-haul or somebody.
The reason is that the wheels will move certain internal parts of the transmission that need lubrication, but that comes from the engine running the pump. That is why some towing companies that have to tow cars with the drive wheels on the ground will sometimes leave the engine running and the tranny in neutral, but that won't work for long distances
