That makes sense. The oil pump for the transfer case runs from the driveshaft, and the one for the trans runs from the engine. If you put the trans in neutral, then parts of it may be turning without lubrication.

Other things to watch on those trucks:
The electrical power goes through a splice near the battery and gets corroded.
Transmission lines tend to rust out near the tranny in salt country.

Yes if a proper tow bar is afixed. Bumper may have to be notched to fold out of the way to drive the car when not being towed. Make sure to have car in neutral.

I have a Suzuki Jimmy manual 4x4 year 2002 can I flat tow it on a Aframe behind a motorhome


welcome to USA forum
the country with not ONE< JIMNY,
but i can answer
there are 4 ways to tow this is but 1.
backwards towing is best way or drop rear drive shaft (ask)
flat tow 101:
the Jimny is SJ413 here,called Samurai.
the transfer case sets this rule (most rear device)
that rules is dont flat tow it, more that 200 miles
the rear bearing has no lube actions towed
here is the near same transmissions.

and rules (of xfr case)
ill quote my 2001 Vitara, (same setup.)

Follow these steps:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Shift your automatic transmission into PARK (P), or
your manual transmission to SECOND (2).
3. With the ignition key in the ON position, move the
transfer case to NEUTRAL and make sure the 4WD
light on the instrument panel cluster is off. See
"Four-Wheel Drive" in the Index.
4. Turn the ignition key to ACC to unlock the
steering wheel.
5. Release the parking brake
If you tow your four-wheel-drive vehicle from
the front, make sure to move the transfer case
into NEUTRAL or your vehicle could be badly
damaged and the damage would not be covered
by your warranty.
Stop towing every 200 miles (300 km) and start the
engine. Leave the transfer case shift lever in
NEUTRAL. Shift your automatic transmission to
DRIVE (D); leave a manual transmission in
SECOND (2) with the clutch engaged. Run the engine at
medium speed for one minute to circulate oil in the
transfer case. Turn the ignition key to ACC. Now, you
can continue towing your vehicle.
The front wheels transmit shocks during towing.
The steering column may not be strong enough to
withstand the shocks. Always unlock the steering
wheel before towing.
Make sure that the towing speed does not
exceed 50 mph (80 km/h), or your vehicle could
be badly damaged
end direct quote operators guide .....
got that?

not how the 5speed box is in 2nd.
this is to keep it from spinning, and its rear bearing damaged.
there are 2 bearings to worry the rear 5sp and rear transfer case.

on ours, we use an electric oil'er pump added to transfer case.
unlimited tow. (wires power feed from RV via coupler.)
or the drives shaft decoupling device, (not cheap)
or we drop the rear, of prop shaft, and tie up the rear up high
so it cant drop nor let it fall of rear of transfer cases
we use bunji cords, for up,
and then pull the front,
if the prop shaft falls out, you will lose GL4 gear lube out rear
of the transfer case. it falls out so very easy, off that spine.
there are all ways flat,
done them all.,

I have a 2004 Mazda Tribute 6 cylinder all time 4 wheel drive and wondering, can it be flat 4 towed behind a motorhome?


Towing this vehicle will depend on the type of transfer case the vehicle is equipped with. I would suggest calling your dealer and asking them or a reputable transmission repair facility for their opinion to be on the safe side

Tow my 2011 Nissan frontier behind my motorhome


I wouldn't flat tow any vehicle & expect
the transmission or transfer case, to be happy
about it,in the long run

If you study your owners manuals & service manuals
& towing stuff,you will see no manufacturer recommends
the driven wheels be on the ground.

I have 2014 frontier-so that is both ends, of a 4x4

I would put it on a trailer

Too much in the front & rear of the drive train, for me
to tow, other than a trailer

I guess having once owned a trans shop,you see my concerns

You can put the transfer in neutral to tow

You do realize that vehicle is worth
next to nothing

If bought a 1992 Dakota new & had it 18.5 years
until June 2010. Good veh, just not worth more than a few
hundred dollars

I am looking for something to tow behind my motorhome. I have found a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport automatic 2WD. Can it be towed 4 wheels down without disconnecting the driveshaft?


2 wheel drive vehicles can be towed with all four whells on the ground for extended distances. Chrysler recommends a max speed of 30 MPH, but I know these vehicles can be towed at higher MPH. The 4x4 model Jeeps are the vehicles that are not recommended to be towed with all for wheels on the ground, but I know this too has also been done, but with drive shaft removal.

Flat tow?


very few automatic cars can be towed, the transmission is driven by the wheels and overheats. A possible alternative is to use a tow dolly with front wheel drive cars.
