Hi. Will I be able to tow a twin axle Compass Rallye with a Kia Sportage 2 litre 4 x 4. Jean


I would think how much you like living life. You should only do this type of job with a 3\4 ton truck something with more weight than the vehicle you are towing. This will be dangerous and would advise not to do so.

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.

Is chasses on kia sportage 2001 model strong


about as strong as folded 1mm thick sheet metal can be. Most cars now do not have a chassis but are uni-construction which means that the whole body is the chassis and if you are planning in fitting a tow bar to the car then get a tow bar fitter to do the job with an approved tow unit that has been designed to spread the stress over a large section of the car.

Coolant capacity antifreeze


2.0L DOHC engine: 6.8-7.5 liters (1.79-1.98 gallons). Different years and different engines vary the capacity, but 2 gallons will likely take care of most Sportage coolant fills.

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.

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.
