Re: auto g/box broken
Am afraid that it is so. To my knowledge, most 2000 Volvo S40 are front wheel drive while a number are all wheel drive. Either of which would have a serious transmission problem when towed by the rear end up.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

ah, how to tow a suzuki,
well that car has a year, and not stated.
and comes in 2wd or 4wd , 4speed auto, and 5 speed stick
and rules diffr.
flat to or Dolley.
Ill now teach you why in few words,
the rear if the 2 tranmissions (both the transfer case)
and both main gear boxes do not like being towed due to rear bearings are run dry this way, a fact.
so short distance ok,
and gee you never said 5 miles or 3000 miles. so, gee 6
my 84 to 2004 , we most start car and run the gear box every 2oo miles with flat RV tow.
in 4wd, transfer case in neutral and main box in 1st.
these act relubes the dry gear for 200 more miles.
tell year, and the book pages are free.
shows all 4 modes of tow, and all boxs. in the operators guide. plain as day/
P=park gear position (no gear selected)
R=reverse gear position
N=neutral gear position (no gear selected)
2=fixed highest gear (used for speed when climbing an average incline and to control speed on decent)
1=fixed lowest gear (used for climbing steep incline or descending slowly)
Note-: Never engage Reverse gear when traveling forwards and never put into Park when moving forward or backwards, also towing most autos should be done no more than 10mph, fast towing can damage the gearbox, also make sure gear is in Neutral when towing.
Auto or manual? As always , auto , use the gear release tab located on the gear lever. Its covered and you will need a small flat blade to open it. Once open, use the flat blade to press the white tab down and at the same time shift the gear lever to N
If you tow your car in neutral how come is stuck on one gear. Towing got no problems. That mean it wasnt in neutral it was in gear but the clutch is stuck and seem the gear is in neutral. You should have clutch problem before you think about gear box.
Hello! Please tow with the front of Jeep at the Pick-up bumper (reverse) Your odometer will not turn (no miles registered for the tow) also, the brake lights should be wired together so you have brake lights on the towed vehicle.Or buy the kit. Put the Jeep in neutral. Chain the front suspension of Jeep so you only have 15-20 degrees movement. Chain the cars together with two different sets of chains- one to the tow hook and one frame to frame. Put a sign and red rag on rear of Jeep.This is a safe tow.
you can use the oil for the towing package in either rear end, but what they want to know is if the rear end is posi track. to find out jack up the back of the jeep put the transmission in neutral and turn one of the rear wheel if the wheel on the other side turns in the same direction that you are turning the wheel then you have posi track if the wheel on the other side turns backwards the you don't. but like i said you can use the towing oil in either rear end when in dought use the towing oil.
Neutral. But I wouldn't tow it far if you are towing it with the rear wheels on the ground. How far are you going? If you are going to tow it a long distance with the rear wheels on the ground, you need to remove the rear driveshaft.
the idiots must have towed the the car by the wrong end , this will burn out the transmission in short order. Any car needs to be towed with the drive wheels off the ground, if that is not poss then the drive-shaft has to be removed.
