Not sure what it can pull just remember the heavier it is the harder it is to stop. look at the size pads on the that car and remember that is all that is stoping you

You can click here, http://www.trailerlife.com/images/towratings/07towratings.pdf and you might find out your tow rating.

I know that Draw-Tite makes a hitch for it, #24613 and you can click here to view the hitch: http://www.drawtite.com/dt24613.html. The hitch is rated for up to 2,000 lbs weight carrying, but that is only based on the frame of the vehicle. In order to find out what your vehicle can truly tow, I'd check the link at the top if you don't have your owners manual.

Also, if you click here http://www.towingproducts.net/pdf/N24613.pdf you can view the installation instructions.

Hope this helps!

How do I change the signal light flasher on a 1997 pontiac sunfire


Should be located on the fuse block under dash. Simple pull out and push in new one. Buy a new one first in you don't know what it looks like. Note: there are two similar parts; one for 4 way hazard lamps, one for turn signals.

Can you tow a 5x8 trailer with a 1990 4door toyota corola?


Your car manual should give a maximum towing weight in the specifications. Then you will need to know the weight of the trailer+contents.

Does my 2006 pontiac montana sv6 have a transmission cooler so I can haul a small trailer with 2 quads? Do I really need one?


Most vehicles have one or two means of cooling
trans fluid.
I wouldn't tow anything, without replacing whatever
factory cooler you have, out front of the condenser

You need more cooling capacity and in the summer
I would bypass the radiator cooler and use the surface
to air,you need to upgrade

Trying to figure out how much weight i can pull with our burb. the door stick is worn off and the manual gives two different options depending on the gear ratio i bought the burb used so not sure what the...


The weight of the trailer is the most important factor. A good weight-to-horsepower ratio is about 35:1, 35 lbs. of Gross Combined Weight (GCW) for every horsepower your engine develops. Multiply the engine's rated horsepower by 35 and subtract the weight of the vehicle passengers and luggage. The number remaining is the approximate ideal maximum weight you should tow, although a numerically higher axle ratio can help compensate for heavier weight.

Hope this help (remember rated this).

What is the maximum towing capacity for a 1987 chevy caprice brougham..? ( the 305 engine) Thanks!


With a 20 year old vehicle, the original towing capacity does not apply.
I'd set a limit of whatever the weight of your vehicle is as a safe number (if car weighs 3,200 lbs, tow weight is 3,200lbs Max.) Trailer weight is also determined by the capacity of the hitch.
Trailer loading should be at 60% of weight on hitch.
Don't forget...you need a fully functional cooling system, adequate (most times additional) transmission cooling, and good suspension (air shocks, variable load rear springs and fresh differential lube). If this is done, you may be able to add 20-30% more trailer weight.
One item often overlooked is that it really does not matter if you can pull a load...you need to be able to stop it. Make sure your brakes are in really good condition!!!

1998 pontiac sunfire, where is te turn signal fuse


When you open up the drivers side door there should be a panel right on the end of the dashboard. Pull it open and look there. I generally have the fuse diagrams but can't seem to find it for your car. It might be written on the inside of the panel you pull off. You should also have the diagram inside of your book you got with the car unless someone took it out. Look in your glove box it might be there.

What is tongue weight allowed if installing a trailer hitch


General leverage calculations are based on forces and the distances between them which means that the capacity of each and every hitch design is different from the next. There are no simple rules to apply so always play it safe by keeping your cargo load weight well below the hitch capacity rating. An auxiliary stabilizing strap should always be used when carrying any unsupported load to alleviate the added stress on the hitch’s attachment points.

As listed in the owners manual.

Weight of the Trailer
How heavy can a trailer safely be?
It depends on how you plan to use your rig. For
example, speed, altitude, road grades, outside
temperature and how much your vehicle is used to
pull a trailer are all important. It can also depend
on any special equipment that you have on
your vehicle, and the amount of tongue weight the
vehicle can carry. See “Weight of the Trailer
Tongue” later in this section for more information.
Maximum trailer weight is calculated assuming
only the driver is in the tow vehicle and it has all
the required trailering equipment. The weight
of additional optional equipment, passengers and
cargo in the tow vehicle must be subtracted
from the maximum trailer weight.
The following charts show how much your trailer
can weigh, based upon your vehicle model
and options.
2WD Extended Cab Axle Ratio Maximum Trailer Weight GCWR*
Automatic Transmission,
2.9 L Engine 3.73 3,100 lbs (1 406 kg) 7,000 lbs (3 175 kg)
Manual Transmission,
2.9L Engine 3.73 2,100 lbs (952 kg) 6,000 lbs (2 721 kg)
4WD Crew Cab Axle Ratio Maximum Trailer Weight GCWR*
Automatic Transmission,
3.7L Engine 3.73 4,000 lbs (1 814 kg) 9,000 lbs (4 082 kg)
*The Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) is the total allowable weight of the completely loaded
vehicle and trailer including any passengers, cargo, equipment and conversions. The GCWR for your
vehicle should not be exceeded.
