how do I tow it behind my motorhome?
I have a roadmaster hitch set-up for the car. I need to know what to do in order not to ruin the transmission. I'm told put in neutral and remove a fuze. What fuze and where do I find them?
I have never heard of an automatic transmission that you can tow without damaging something. Honda had one that they said that you could tow but I never believed it. The best way to find out is check with the dealer.
I would strongly recommend NOT towing the Chevy the way you planned...Instead, ante up a little cash and do it the safe way and keep all 4 wheels elevated and off the ground with a tow dolly, like the one pictured here that U-Haul rents: http://www.uhaul.com/Reservations/EquipmentDetail.aspx?model=AT
neither budget ,penske, uhaul have dolly to tow HHR with. Just wanted to tow one across country & wound up driving it. Will mess up tie rods definitedly if towed, and radiator if loaded down the road with a puncture hole..
Have towed 2002 tracker 4x4 auto, 40,000 miles, no problem. Transfer case in neutral, transmission in park.
That's cause the transfer case is disconnected from your transmission when in neutral, but beware if your transfer case fluid level gets too low bad things happen real fast.
Not trying to debate the issue, just telling of my own experience.
Automatic transmission HHR is flat towable, read your owner manual
If it is towable it is at low speeds for short distances.
Look folks it's front wheel drive why will it hurt transmission tow dolly piviots
GuruWTDX8 If what ever you are towing is only front wheel drive then towing it with the front wheels on a tow dolly will NOT hurt the transmission, just make sure it is securely attached with the straps and if it has a frame chain make sure that is attached also. Parking brake off, and recheck the attaching hardware after the first 30 miles and every 100 after that, just too be safe.
Pull the #8 fuse from the fuse block located on the right side of the console, in the passenger well. This allows you to leave the key in the run position and not have battery power to all the accessories. Don't be alarmed, though, that the car will still start and that the radio will still play. This will only last for 10 minutes or until you open the door. The car is working on retained memory.
