Question about 1991 Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

Front wheels locked up.

My Tercels wheels locked up. I don't realy think it has any thing to do with the brakes, because when i was using a wench to drag it onto a car dolly the wheels would roll. The transmission shifts the wheels just wont turn in any direction. Please send me all the possibiltys and i will try to trobleshoot thru thouse.

I tow a front wheel drive Ford Fusion Hybrid with all four on the ground. My problem is the starting battery goes dead and the tires are wearing more than normal.


That is the problem, the tires DON'T turn, so every time you corner, the front tires scrub out. You would need to have the key in the ignition and the lock released whilst towing. You can do this easily if you have two keys, leave one in the ignition and lock the doors with the other one.

The starting battery going dead is a puzzle, but Hybrid cars charge batteries as the brakes are used and speed is decreased. The wheels generate power, so perhaps they use power if they are turning with the engine off? Just guesswork.

you may be better with a towing arrangement where the front or rear wheels fit onto a single or twin axle dolly like tow truck drivers use. Like the tow dolly in this link.

Move auto to a dolly to take to shop?


Using an automotive dolly can be risky, If the vehicle is front wheel drive then dolly the front, if it is rear wheel drive then dolly the rear. If it is 4 wheel drive and late model with no neutral shift position dolly the front and remove the rear drive shaft at the rear axle. If the vehicle is older 4 wheel drive with neutral selection for the transfer case then simply shift to neutral and dolly the front axle. Most transmissions whither automatic or manual will be damaged if the engine is not running while the vehicle is in motion.
the engines crankshaft or the transmissions input shaft must turn to lubricate the transmission unless the transmission is automatic and has a rear pump that can lubricate the transmission if the transmissions output shaft is turned in normal rotation for forward direction of travel. This is the only way to to assure there is no damage to the drive train. Be sure to follow all recommended tie down procedures. remember the dolly rotates under the vehicle so one or the other of the wheels must be able to move forward and back to allow for corners. Try to always choose a path that allows forward direction unless you are an expert driver with experience and able to back a farm wagon type axle trailer (like covered wagon) going backward will be a challenge even for someone experienced pulling a bumper pull trailer.
To get the vehicle onto a dolly have some friends help push or use a cable puller to move the vehicle onto the dolly.

How to tow a car with turbo failure


Your car is most likely front wheel drive. You will need to use a two wheel dolly. Secure the front wheels on the dolly, shift the car into park and lock the steering wheel.

The right back wheel is locked up and will not turn. The emergency brake is not on. When I try to move it just slides.1989 Buick Century


Did you set the emergency brake on and take it off ?
If an emergency brake is not used all the time, the cables start to rust, then when it is set, the cable pulls the shoe onto stop and then when you take it off, the cable will not release. Causing the wheel not to release....???
This is the only thing i can think of with out taking the wheel apart to see if anything fell off inside ??
Hope this was some help to you ?

The rear wheels on this car are free rolling. With the front wheels up on the tow dolly and secured with the straps provided you should have no problems. Follow the tow dolly instructions such as release the emergency brake, place selector in neutral, and don't drive over 45 mph. You will get to where your going safely. GOOD LUCK.

2006 Pacifica emergency brake problem.


The only manual adjustment for the parking brake on these is at the shoes themselves. Procedure for that is as follows:

1) Place parking brake lever in "full released" position.
2) Raise and support vehicle.
3) Remove plug in parking brake shoe support to access adjuster star-wheel.
NOTE: Through the access hole, rotate the adjuster wheel in the following direction to expand the shoes outward against the drum.
Left brake--Rotate star wheel toward rear of vehicle.
Right brake--Rotate star wheel toward front of vehicle.
4)Using an appropriate tool, turn adjuster star wheel until wheel will not rotate (dead lock).
5) Back off adjuster six detents (teeth).
6) Rotate wheel, checking for light drag. If drag is too heavy, continue to back of adjuster one detent at a time until light drag is present. Do not back off star-wheel more than 17 detents from wheel lock.
7) Install access plug.
8) Adjust opposite wheel parking brake shoes using same method.
9) Lower Vehicle.
10) Apply and release parking brake lever once to ensure proper operation of parking brakes.

These directions are directly from 2006 Pacifica factory service manual.

Ignation Switch on 2005.5 Jetta TDI


Unlikely to cause damage that is not noticable.  If it was dragged with the wheels not turning, ( tow truck drivers usually know better)  locked by the tranny in Park, unless it is more than a couple of car lengths, should be no problem,   Qualified tow operators know what they are doing (cosmetic damage aside).   If you have ANY doubt, have the repair shop sign a complete statement that you have (already) written about the towing incident, just in case you need it later ... put it in the glovebox with the towing receipt, you will probably never need it.  
When you drive it you will know if the tranny is OK.  No worries.
