2000 Kia Sportage No reverse in Auto Tranny after towing

Car worked perfectly before this incident. It is a 2000 Kia Sportage 2 wheel drive with Automatic Transmission. I had to tow the vehicle across the state, not because there was something wrong with it, I was just moving and had to tow the Sportage on a car dolly. The front wheels were on the dolly and the rear wheels were on the ground. I put the tranny in neutral and towed it across the state. When I arrived and tried to back it off the dolly, it would not go into reverse. I have checked the fluid level and it is OK. The car drives just the same as before in drive, just will not go into reverse. It acts like it tries, you can sort of feel it trying, but it will not go or pull itself in reverse.

YOU'VE burnt the transmission up. 2 wheel drives are required for the drive train be off the ground when towing.. drive shaft removed when towing from front OK as long as driveshafts removed. when towing with rear wheels on the ground and drive shaft still installed will burn the transmission pump out.;you will need another transmission,or sometimes a new transmission pump will repair it,although it will still show the additional mile that the vehicle was towed . thank you for choosing fixya.com

Can a 2006 saturn VUE 4cyl, 2.2l front wheel drive be flat towed?


if it is an automatic transmission it will need to towed with the front wheels off the ground
Short distance towing with any automatic transmission is ok but it has to be remembered that the gears/bearings will be without lubricating oil
the user manual for all automatic cars states to remove the drive shaft before towing and as that is impracticable with a front wheel drive car , best to tow with the wheels of the ground
consider putting it on a car trailer behind you MH as an alternative operation

What is the towing performance of a kia sportage 2ltr 4wd


Towing


Kia lists a maximum trailer towing mass (trailer plus load) of 1800 kg for the Sportage but that figure would be illegal in NSW. For light commercials (such as the Sportage) in NSW, the regulations state that the loaded trailer must not exceed 2/3s of the gross vehicle mass (GYM) of the towing vehicle. The Sportage's GVM is 1928 kg, resulting in an allowable maximum towing mass of 1292 kg. Even this figure could be beyond the Sportage's reasonable capabilities, given its sub standard handling and its overall levels of performance.

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.

What is the to capacity of a 2006 kia sportage i don't have the owner's manual and want to tow a trailer


Most cars are about 1/2 ton capacity(1000 pounds) Towing a small trailer should be fine as long as the weight at the hitch ball is less than 200 pounds. Load the trailer so the most of the weight is on the trailer not your car.Remember to keep the tire pressure correct on the trailer and your car and give yourself plenty of stopping space as the car will respond slower with the extra weight. Also try to take off kind of slow and easy so you dont over work your cars transmission. An add on type auxillery transmission cooler is recommended.
I hope this info helps you.

Timing belt broke on 1998 kia sportage, need the correct points


Hi, Just to clarify and clear things up, the motor used in the 1998 to 2002 Kia Sportage is actually the Mazda FE3 engine and it is a NON-INTERFERENCE engine.

For any an all repair information on any Kia vehicle produced you can access the KGIS system (Kia Global Information System), just go to www.kiatechinfo.com and create and account (its completely FREE). After you do this you will have access to all the Kia Shop Manuals, DTC Manuals, Recall information for your vehicle and more.

I just had the same problem with my Sportage and found all the information that I needed through KGIS. Hope this helps and good luck on fixing your Sportage.
