Hi,

To my knowledge, generally on most vehicles:

  • if it is manual transmission, yes;
  • if it is automatic front wheel drive, front must be lifted;
  • if it is automatic rear wheel drive, rear must be lifted;
  • if it is all wheel drive, no.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,



    You have a front wheel drive vehicle with automatic transmission, therefore it could only be towed with the front wheel hoisted up.

Tow ball weight for 1998 105R SERIES LANDCRUISER toyota


most tow bar specifications state 300-400 kgs is the maximum weight allowed ( best if the toyota is a long wheel base )
if you have something heavy on the bar you should be using load lever stabilizer bars from the bar to the "A" frame of the towed unit
these effectively reduce the weight on the ball by transferring the load to the vans wheels and the toyota front wheels
they reduce sway from uneven roads and passing trucks, improve driving stability on the toyota and reduce the load on the toyota drive tires
you measure the tow ball weight by lifting on the ball coupling of the van
best talk with bar specialist fitting shops and retailers that sell van accessories
don't forget you are legally limited by the weight you can tow by the vehicle towing specifications and for most late vehicle that tops out at 3000kgs --early vehicles it is less than 2000kgs

Can this car be towed with 4wheels on the ground


YES!!!! The Saturn is one of the few automatic tranny cars that can be towed on all four wheels !!!!
Check your owners manual , it's all in there. You'll have to pull a fuse and set up the shifter ,but read your owners manual.

I want to tow a 1999 Buick Regal behind 2002 Ford Explorer (4.0L V6). I am thinking of using a tow bar. Tow is 1,100 miles - one time. See any problems? What tow bar would you suggest?


Not a good plan. Rent a car dolly from u-haul or somebody.
The reason is that the wheels will move certain internal parts of the transmission that need lubrication, but that comes from the engine running the pump. That is why some towing companies that have to tow cars with the drive wheels on the ground will sometimes leave the engine running and the tranny in neutral, but that won't work for long distances

Fitting a Tow Bar


just put your tow bar up to the frame, it already has threaded holes in the frame to fit the bolts that came with your tow bar to it. It's really easy. everything should line up perfect

Most smaller cars can tow between 500 and 600kgs unbraked and usually 1000kgs if braked. (trailer has brakes)
