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!

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

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus and want to tow it behind my motor home. Can this be down on all 4 wheels without a transmission cooler?


It cannot be towed if it is an automatic, you will need a dolly to have the front wheels of the ground and not turning if it's a auto, because the engine won't be running the oil pump in the tranny won't be supplying any oil hence it will run dry in a matter of minutes, I can't stress more if it's a auto then don't tow, have the drive wheels on a dolly so they aren't driving

I need to find out how to tow a jeep grand cherokee limited with full time 4 wheel drive all 4 wheels down behind a motor home. I hope you can help me. Thank you


You can tow in with the transfer case in neutral as long as all 4 wheels are on the ground like with a tow bar.If you use a tow dolly you will have to remove the rear drive shaft.This transfer case has a viscous coupling that will over heat if all the wheel dont turn at the same rate.

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 keep getting conflicting answers. We're getting ready to buy a 2007 or 2008 Jeep Compass. Can both the 2WD and 4WD be towed behind an RV, with 4 wheels on the ground?


  • You can tow any front wheel drive manual transmission vehicle as far as you want and as long as you want. As an added precaution, you might want to consider a lube pump or axle lock to ensure that no transmission damage will occur.
  • Most 4WD vehicles with a manual transmission, manual transfer case and manual lock out hubs can be towed on all four wheels safely with no problems.
  • If your 4WD has no manual lockout hubs and/or no manual transfer case, then you will need a coupling device on the rear drive shaft to tow it safely
  • Before moving the towed vehicle, check the following: transmission fluid level is full, release the parking brake, start the engine, shift the transmission from Park to Drive, shift from Drive to Neutral, turn off the engine, leave the key in the Accessory (I) position, make sure the radio and all accessories are turned off.

    The steering system can be damaged if the steering wheel is locked. Always leave the key in the Accessory (I) Position to prevent damage to the steering system when towing behind another vehicle.

    Some recommend starting the engine and shifting the automatic transmission (if so equipped) through the gears approximately every 500 miles and shifting from Drive to Neutral before shutting off the engine.

    Safe towing of a vehicle with four wheels on the ground behind a motorhome can only be done with a supplemental braking system including a break-away feature.

    SEVERE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION DAMAGE WILL OCCUR IF THE CAR IS SHIFTED FROM REVERSE TO NEUTRAL AND THEN TOWED WITH THE DRIVE WHEELS ON THE GROUND.

    You can avoid certain kinds of handling problems by making sure that your vehicle is towed with the tow bar as close to horizontal (parallel to the ground) as possible. This prevents your vehicle from "riding up" or "running under" the back of your coach during hard stops. It also avoids excessive stress on both the hitch receiver and your vehicle's mounting brackets.

    Most newer vehicles will not add miles to the odometer while they are being towed. Such vehicles have an electronic odometer which will work only if the key is in the "on" position. If your vehicle is an older model and does not have an electronic odometer, you will need to have a Speedometer Disconnect to keep miles from adding up on your towed vehicle.

    Never ever back up with a vehicle attached to your coach with a tow bar. Backing up is the most common way of damaging your tow bar or towed vehicle.

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.
