towing a 1992 loyale 4wd 5sp

Recommended Posts

if you have to push a button to engage the 4wd than you can tow it with just the front wheels up on a dolly... otherwise it's AWD and needs a flatbed, or the rear drive train disabled (which I think you can do by jumping some wires)...

If I were you, I would tow it flatbed. I wouldn't want to take chances with the most expensive part of my car - pushbutton 4WD or not.

As long as the 5-speed is not FT4WD/AWD then dolly trailering is OK. Automatics are different.

 

No wiring to "disable" rear drive for towing... have to pull driveshaft or axle shafts to do that.

weird, I thought I saw soemthing on the ex-in-laws Loyale years ago that had something about disabling AWD with a jumper... never had to do it though... there's was also an automatic...

anyways...

 

I've had my 5spd push-button 4wd turbo wagon towed a few times with the wheels rolling...
