You do not state if it an automatic. If it is, only tow the vehicle a short distance, 20 miles, slowly when in 'neutral'. The main enemy is overheating the transmission fluid by having the wheels drive the gear box impeller causing it to churn the fluid generating heat. If you can feel the transmission casing getting hot stop the tow and leave it to cool before starting again Manuals should be fine towed in neutral

Can I tow a 2005 ford expedition 4x4 behind my motorhome without any modifications?


It is not recomended to flat tow your expedition with the engine off and driveshaft in. The oiling system in your transmission runs off of the engine. You can tow short distances but the transmission components will be turning without fresh fluid being moved through them. This will cause exessive wear due to the fluid overheating and losing its ability to lubricate properly. You can flat tow unlimited distances with the engine ideling or the driveshaft removed. if you chose to tow with the engine running you should stop often to make sure you are not overheating the engine. You may not get enough air flow to the radiator while the expedition is behind your motor home.

Automatic shift stuck park


flat towed, in park is not possible
the shift console, has an emergency park lockout, release feature
what is broken, unsaid.??????
the lost operators guide covers both towing rules
and shows that emerg. button location. use it and shift the shifter to neutral.
the front wheels are locked in park.
the problem with flat towing any car are many.
steering lock failure. (locks in motion)
transmission oiling , when the engine is not running the
transmission pump is dead, and oil lube is lacking to many critical areas..
page 163 here covers, the magic switch (emg)
http://www.toyota.com/t3Portal/document/om/OM12656U/pdf/4.pdf

page 160 is tow.
no flat towing.
it can be towed on its rear wheels all day long.

the transmission issues, can be very serious.
do no listen to some dweeb saying gee i towed min 500 miles the wrong way, do not. he never rebuilt a transmission in his life and dont understand how it works deep inside.
page 161,
Never tow a vehicle with an automatic
transmission from the rear with the
front wheels on the ground, as this
may cause serious damage to the
transmission.

page 162, emergancy towed with chains (flat)
short distance with a driver in the seat
in neutral. , ACC position at key switch.
obviously if the key switch parts, are bad, this dont work and would be
very dangerous to all person, in car, towing, and me on the road.

Can i flat tow or dinghy tow an 85 civic automatic ?


if at all possible tow it on a flat bed so that all wheels are off the ground, if this is not possible, tow it with the drive wheels off the ground, if its front wheel drive tow with front off the ground, if its rear wheel tow with rear off the ground, if none of these options are possible, dont pull the car further than 50 miles and try not to tow it faster than 40 mph as this can possible cause transmission problems

Can you flat tow a 2007 Lincoln MKX?


The 2007 Lincoln MKX is definitely towable "4 down". According to the owners manual: The ignition switch needs to be in the accessory position (position 2 of the 4 possible positions) so that the steering wheel is able to turn to let the front wheels track the towing vehicle. The transmission needs to be in "N" so that the engine's disconnected. The parking brake needs to be off, and the engine should be run for 5 minutes before starting out and "at fuel stops". This makes the vehicle a good vehicle to tow along with you behind your motorhome. The folks at Blue Ox make an excellent tow "baseplate" that is practically invisible yet hooks up easily to the motorhome. The BX2192 package is made specifically for the '07 to '10 MKX. It works beautifully with my '07!
