As far as towability is concerned you can do one of two things:

1 - Put it on a tow dolly (since it's a front wheel drive car)

2 - Get a Lube Pump. These can run around $930 to $999. You can view more information about the lube pumps if you click here.

Equipment:

If you don't use a tow dolly, you'll need the following:

You'll need a tow bar, which you can view one if you click here.

You'll need a baseplate to attach to your frame, and the tow bar. I don't see one available for your car by Roadmaster Inc, or Blue OX. You'll have to go to a certified welder and have one fabricated for you. Just make sure you pick out your tow bar so they know where to make the attachment points.

Hope this helps!

How can I tow a 1999 dodge intrepid


It would work best on a tow dolly. I imagine that has an automatic transmission. Its a front wheel drive so you want the drive tires off the ground if you want the least amount of grief. *** Make sure your dolly swivels or you will be sorry.

I have a 2003 chevy S-10 4x4 crew cab we are wanting to tow behind a motor home. I was wondering how you can put the transfer case into neutral, so we dont have to car dolly it everywhere?


Some customers may want to tow their vehicle behind another vehicle with all FOUR tires on the ground. This is referred to as "dinghy" towing.
Towing in this manner is acceptable only on the certain vehicles. The vehicle should be properly equipped and prepared as described below.
The passenger cars listed above are the vehicles that CAN be dinghy towed. Passenger cars not listed above are vehicles where dinghy towing is not permitted or recommended.
Certain 4WD trucks can be dinghy towed depending on the transfer case option. Rear wheel drive and AWD trucks should NOT be dinghy towed. Refer to the truck models and transfer case options below.
Please refer to the applicable vehicle Owner's Manual before towing.
Passenger Cars Notice: These vehicles must not be towed backwards or transmission damage may occur.

Important: The towing speed as stated in the Owner's Manual should not exceed 104 km/h (65 mph) for 1995-2005 vehicles.
In order to properly dinghy tow the vehicle, follow these steps:
  1. Firmly set the parking brake.
  2. Open the fuse panel and pull the fuse(s) indicated in the Owner's Manual section detailing towing your vehicle. This prevents the instrument panel (IP) and/or electronic PRNDL indicator from draining the battery.
  3. Securely attach the vehicle to the tow vehicle.
  4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position, which is one position forward of LOCK. Unlocking the steering column allows for proper movement of the front wheels and tires during towing.
  5. For 1997-1999 Cutlass, 1997-2003 Malibu, 2004-2006 Chevrolet Classic and 1999-2004 Alero/Grand Am models, turn the ignition switch to the accessory (ACC) position, which is one position forward of OFF. This position unlocks the transaxle.
  6. Shift the transmission to Neutral (N).
  7. Notice: Use extra care whenever towing another vehicle. Do not exceed the towing vehicle's gross combination weight (GCW) by adding the weight of the dinghy towed vehicle or vehicle damage may result.
  8. When the vehicle being towed is firmly attached to the tow vehicle, release the parking brake.
  9. Replace the fuse(s) in the fuse panel when finished towing.

Parked my Celica in the underground carpark at work. Hit the electric locks and now the car wont open. Car is on a slight angle. Have put in a new battery, but still not working. Alarm will go off if I...


The fuse to the power door lock/unlock motors has blown. In order to get into the car and start it,
can't you just unlock the door with the key - then start it with the same key?
In the worst case, disconnecting the battery will disable the car alarm, so it can be towed without
the alarm blaring.

I am looking for something to tow behind my motorhome. I have found a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport automatic 2WD. Can it be towed 4 wheels down without disconnecting the driveshaft?


2 wheel drive vehicles can be towed with all four whells on the ground for extended distances. Chrysler recommends a max speed of 30 MPH, but I know these vehicles can be towed at higher MPH. The 4x4 model Jeeps are the vehicles that are not recommended to be towed with all for wheels on the ground, but I know this too has also been done, but with drive shaft removal.

Need to tow 1999 F250 about 150 miles home. What


If you have a stick shift, you rent a 2 wheel tow dolly and run the front tires onto it and strap it down. Put the truck in neutral and away you go.
If you have an Automatic you want all 4 wheels on a flatbed or tow trailer. You rent a car hauler trailer and piggyback the truck onto the trailer. A good rental will know the weight and rent you the right trailer.
