Asked in Chevy Malibu, Odometers
How do you disconnect the odometer on a 2006 Chev Malibu. Its for towing reasons.?
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.

Asked in GMC Yukon
Can you flat tow a 2011 GMC Yukon Denali with a 4x4?
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.

What are the release dates for State Trooper - 1956 Death on Wheels - 2.24?
When towing a vehicle behind a camper does the mileage add up on that vehicle?
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.

What do you unplug when timing 1990 town car 5.0?
Do you have to disconnect a driveshaft of a 1988 crown victory to tow dolley it?
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.

Asked in Jeep Liberty, Recreational Vehicles (RVs)
What is the proper procedure for towing a 2006 4x4 Jeep Liberty behind a motor home with all four 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.
Asked in Geo, Chevy Tracker, Geo Tracker, Plural Nouns
Can you tow a 5 speed 1997 2WD Geo Tracker?
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.
Asked in Chevrolet, Chevy Trucks and SUVs, How To
How to tow a Chevy Equinox?
With the drive wheels off of the ground. Automatic transmissions depend on a pump to keep the internal transmission parts lubricated. If you tow ANY vehicle with an automatic transmission with the wheels on the ground (even in neutral) you will most likely burn the transmission up. The ONLY way around this is to let the car idle in neutral while being towed, or if it is RWD, disconnect the driveshaft. If the car has a manual transmission, you can simply tow it in neutral even with the wheels on the ground.
