I'm looking at buying a 92 Loyale from a auction. The vehicle was towed to the tow yard. I don't think they towed it with a flatbed trailer. I assume it was towed with only the back wheels on the ground.

If it was towed that way does it damage the vehicle? THe dealer said you need to get all wheels off the ground to tow it.

as long as the car was not left in 4wd it would be ok, as the rear wheels and driveshaft would spin freely and is not engaged with the tranny in front wheel drive

towing on all 4 is ok for a few miles, but the pump in the tranny wont be circulating the atf

but in fwd mode if the front was on the tow truck and the back wheels on the ground this is ok

I hate to sound really stupid, but how to you shift the vehicle from 2WD to 4WD. For some reason I thought the wagon was full time 4WD.

Thanks
