Towing camper trailer was told by mechanics not to take it out of 5th gear and towe around 100km/hr is the correct .


the towing procedures will, be in the user manual
depending on the trailer weight( less than 1 ton) it is permissible to tow in over drive and for a trailer without load levelling ( stabilizer bars ) 100 klms would be an ideal speed
5th gear is a direct drive gear ( input and output shaft connected as one) and the idea of staying in 5th gear reduces the load on the gears and bearings

Hi I have a mk4 golf gti with a problem selecting gears.I can select one or two (possibly 3rd and 4th)gears ,there are no nasty noises or crunches and this problem occurred whilst driving the car prior to...


Have you lost 1st, 2nd and reverse? Yes? 1.8 litre engine?This is a common fault on the gearbox. (They use it on Audi TT's). Your best option is to get it to a gearbox specialist. Trying to fix this at home without the correct tools could take you days. The problem is inside the gearbox. A rivet holding one of the gear selectors in position has snapped. A major effort to repair a simple problem.

What gear to drive in when towing a trailer with toyota camry


Whatever gear the car needs to have the moter spinning without full throttle.Auto and manual are driven differently.Up hill,downhill.Mostly,if its manual you wait a bit longer to change gears.E.g.Normal change revs,3000 rpm,go to 3500rpm with the trailer on.Auto,use the gear selecter and put it back to 3 instead of D and when the car has enough speed,then into D.Drive the auto like a manual on hills etc.to help it.Don't forget that braking distances almost double when you have a trailer on.Hope this helps

Car wont roll forward or back even in neutral


I assume it's a manual transmission.
If the car will not roll backward or forward in neutral (with or without the clutch engaged) the transmission is most likely locked in two gears at the same time.
This may happen if gear selectors are excessively worn. If you are able to examine the gear selection levers external to the gearbox, ensure they are in the 'neutral' (no gear selected) position when the gear lever is in Neutral. If not in correct position, you may be able to manually reset the levers to correct neutral position and thereby unlock the gearbox.
In any case, if it's happened once, it will happen again, so get the gearbox and gear selection mechanism checked for wear or breakage.

1998 Disco-Unable to remove key from ignition.


If disco is automatic move the transfer lever from high to low box and back again firmly then the key will come out there is a safety feature on the autos to prevent the key being removed if the transfer box is not in either high or low correctly with most dicso;s the transfer shift lever is stiff. through lack of use .once it is pushed in properly the key will release it works every time and I have had four v8 autos
basically you cant remove the key because even though the gearbox is in park if the transfer gears are not fully home the park sensor on the gearbox thinks it is out of gear eg not in park so wont let you remove the key and leave the car out of gear in case it rolls away .Dan

It thinks you're kinky ;)

Seriously though, it suggests a problem with the Automatic Gear box ECU, or X/Y selector switch. Can also be water in the connector as it joins the gearbox, or someone's knocked the ECU which is under the passenger seat (RHD).
Sometimes this can be cleared by stopping, turning off the ignition, and starting again and it's fine. It's alerting you that it is in 'Limp Home' mode (3)
