yes, it will burn tranny up. if its not all wheel drive why can't you tow it from the rear
I don't think so. Disconnecting the odometer is illegal, and besides, you tow a FWD car with the front wheels off the ground and in that manner the odometer does not register miles. Towing it with the front wheels touching the ground will damage the transmission. So if towed correctly this is a mute issue.
Yeah, sure, just put the transfer case in neutral; this is fine for short distances, say five miles or so at slow speed. For towing longer distances, disconnect the linkage to the wheels on the ground.
NO, Get you a dolly. towing longer trips will tear up the transmission,with the frount wheels on the ground.
Raise the front or all four wheels off the ground for towing.
Only if your towing the vehicle by the rear wheels. If you are towing by the front wheels you do not need to unlock the steering wheel.
The conventional way of towing cars with the emergency brake on can not be (that is, with two wheels on the street). ... If two non-driving wheels on the ground are towing your car and the parking brake is released, there should be no damage to the car.
No. The Yukon Denali's AWD setup is not provisioned to lubricate the driveline components while towing. It must be towed with ALL wheels off the ground, such as on a flat trailer. There is a driveline disconnect that can be installed on the vehicle to make flat towing possible; however the aftermarket equipment will void GM's warranty.

Yes, by towing with the front wheels off the ground. Or by keeping it under 55 with the transmission in neutral.
The odometer will count the miles, regarless of which fuse is pulled, if the drive wheels are on the ground and the driveshaft is attached. So, either remove the driveshaft or lift the drive wheels off of the ground.

If it is FWD and you tow it with the front wheels off the ground then the odometer will not add mileage. If it is RWD and is a manual transmission, same thing applies. If on the other hand it is an automatic RWD then you must disconnect the drive shaft to tow with the wheels down which will not add mileage. A FWD should never be towed with the front wheels down. Doing so on either vehicle with an A/T will damage the transmission.
You don't need to unplug anything. You'll either need to tow it with the rear wheels raised, and the front wheels on the ground, or you'll need to remove the driveshaft if you intend on towing it with the back or all four wheels down.
That depends. If you want the front wheels on the ground and the rear wheels to be on the dolly, then no. If you want the rear wheels on the ground and the front wheels on the dolly, then yes, absolutely. You will need a 12 mm 12-point wrench or socket to remove the bolts holding the driveshaft yoke to the companion flange on the rear diff. Hope this helps.
For emergency towing of a mile or so in neutral you should be ok. If you are towing it any farther than that, you really need to remove the driveshafts to prevent catastophic damage to the transmission and gear box.

At least the front wheels have to be off the ground.At least the front wheels have to be off the ground.
It CAN be done, but it may be with complications. You need to go to a Chevy dealer and find out the recommended method of towing by the manufacturer.
That depends if all the wheels are on the ground. Some cars have to have the drive shaft disconnected so it can be towed. Then it doesn't click up mileage.
Disconnect the transfer case!
Not with all four wheels on the ground. As long as the front wheels are up, then yes.Not with all four wheels on the ground. As long as the front wheels are up, then yes.
If it is a Automatic, then the drive wheels should not touch the ground. Severe transmission damage can occur if towed in that manner. If it is a manual, then it can be towed with all wheels rotating.
My RAV4 transmission went out and I need to tow it about 50 miles. I want to use a towing dolly instead of a trailer. Can the RAV4 to pulled on a dolly with 2 wheels on the ground?
It is not recommended to tow all four wheels down. Chrysler wants you to use a vehicle dolley and tow with either front of the vehicle up or rear of vehicle up in the dolley. Just reading from the service manual. I cant even find a procedure do it if you do tow with four wheels on ground. Hope this helps.
Manual Tranny is the same as Automatic Tranny when towing a 2WD. 2WD (Tow from back): Secure the rear wheels with a towing dolly (follow instructions for the dolly), set key to ACC, Make sure wheels are straight forward and secure the steering wheel with a clamping device for towing. The column isn't strong enough for shocks from the front wheels, make sure it's unlocked (setting it to ACC) before towing.
