In most places you do.
yes you can dolly a car backwards but you should follow these guides. 1) The car has a steering lock and it is engaged. 2) There is no one in the vehicle whilst being towed. 3) You have a towing light bar so that people can tell the vehicle is going backwards. 4) The handbrake is on if it is a ma...
No, not if you are towing a vehicle with a tow rope. If the tow car loses traction it could cause both cars to veer of the road. If the towed vehicle is unable to stop, it could impact the tow vehicle. Either situation is bad, just shell out the money and pay a professional tow truck.
May be a bad trans TRS sensor. Many went bad in the 98's P1744 means TCC (Torque convertor clutch) mechanical noise or stuck in off position. Lock up type convertor. http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=535091&highlight=P1744.
Defective master cylinder? Frozen caliper? Parking brake cable frozen?
The gas tank sizes for a 1998 Ford Windstar are :GL with the 3.0 liter V6 engine ( 20.0 U.S. gallons )GL with the 3.8 liter V6 engine ( 20.0 or the optional 25.0 U.S. gallons )LX (25.0 U.S. gallons )
If you're raising it from the front and leaving the rear wheels on the ground, just some good tire straps. No alterations need to be made to the vehicle in this mode. If you plan on raising the rear of the vehicle, and leaving the front axle on the ground, you'll need to install locking hubs on t...
Buying a tow dolly can cost $1,000-$4,500, depending on towing capacity, size, quality of materials and other options.For example, the Roadmaster RM3477 Tow Dolly with built-in electric brakes sells for $1,600 -$2,000, and can tow a vehicle weighing up to 4,250 pounds.
Tow dollies, which lift just the two front wheels off the ground, can work, but using one requires special effort.You'll have to disconnect and remove the drive shaft to protect the transmission [source: Penske Truck Rental].This method of towing allows all four wheels of the towed vehicle to rol...
Step 1 - Remove Upper Air Plenum. Lable and tag all electrical connections and vacume lines to make reinstallation easier. Step 2 - Remove Lower Intake Manifold by performing the following: 2A.
Make sure the Hood release inside the cockpit area (near the drivers knees) is fully returned to the latched position. A '98 model may need some lubricand under the hood at the latch. A simple 3in1 or WD40 would work or better, a white lithium spray. Good Luck
May an Isuzu Trooper 1998 4wd manual be towed with a tow dolly without disconnecting the driveshaft?
Yes it can but with limits. The maximum speed it can be towed with the drive shaft in is 30 MPH and the maximum distance is 50 miles.
First make sure you have good brake pads and shoes. Next, try bleeding out the brake lines with new fluid. This would help rule out contaminated fluid. You could try checking the vacuum assist near the master cylinder next. That is a start.
Do you have to dissconnect the drive shaft on rear wheel drive with standard transmission when towing on car dolly?
No, you just put the transmission in neutral. This works for both a dolly and for flat towing.
No.The load from a wheel is transferred to the axle/hub through the friction of the clamped joint, not through the wheel stud.A wheel stud can only bend if the lug nuts are not properly torqued, in which case the wheel is about to fall off, anyway.Therefore, properly installed wheel spacers are p...
Have a compression test done. Pull the rad cap when cold, run the vehicle up to operation temp and it should bubble in the rad (like a pot of boiling water). If it's only a small head gasket leak you could find someone (garage) who has a gas analyzer or a emission testing machine and use the prob...
3/16 for a metal line. And rubber brake lines don't have sizes.
Need to know if it is the intake manifold or an exhaust manifold and what is wrong with it.
That car has a relatively low powered engine, and a history of mechanical problems. I wouldn't risk that journey, and definitely not if it has an automatic transmission..
If it had shocks about 1 hour. But I think you will find it has struts. Struts take at least 2 hours.
yes you could do that or to be really safe you can disconnect the drive shaft
the steering lock should be off IE. key in and turned. This is to allow the steering wheel to rotate as the vehicles negotiate bends
Florida does not allow double tandem towing (a vehicle pulling a trailer and a boat, or two trailers).Trailers must have safety chains, reflectors, license plate lights, tail lights, turn signal lights and brake lights.The trailer must be registered in your state, and you need proof of insurance.
Licensing and Registration Because tow dollies merely substitute for wheels on a licensed vehicle, their owners and operators don't need to license them.Tow dollies do not require licensing in Illinois.
Transmission fluid is low, dirty filter, leaking seals, sticking accumulator, etc.
It involves attaching a tow vehicle to an RV using a tow bar, so that the vehicle rolls along behind the RV on its own four tires.Theoretically, any vehicle with rear-wheel-drive and a manual transmission, or a four-wheel-drive with a manual transfer case that can be put in neutral, can be towed ...
Ah, the fine Windstar!! Have two of them myself. Just took one off the road and did the head gaskets on the other. Started her up and was the power steering was noisy. It had been sitting awhile, not quite a year and I don't remember it that noisy. Its not too bad straight driving but turning tho...
Yes, as long as they are both the same size. Also it would probably be better if they were about the same size as the rear tires because if they are smaller your headlights will point to low, and if they are bigger your headlights will be in other drivers eyes all the time.
Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem - usually in the emission control system
My steering wheel was shakey and worse when I hit my brakes. If this is your situation, it's alright to drive, but you need to have your rotors turned. They tend to warp when they're hot and the water from the rain hits them over a period of time.
My 2000 windstar was just doing that same thing. my problem was corrected by changing the transmission range sensor. that is the sensor that is on the top of the tranny which is connected to the shift linkage.I just went through the same thing on my mothers 2000 ford windstar lx.The overdrive lig...
It is possible to tow a car behind a fifth wheel however, certain states have restrictions on triple towing including whether or not passengers are allowed, size limits, and specific driving rules that ensure that you are towing safely.While it is possible, it may not necessarily be legal.
Headed uphill, turn your front wheels away from the curb and let your vehicle roll back a few inches.The wheel should gently touch the curb.Set the parking brake.Headed either uphill or downhill when there is no curb, turn the wheels so the vehicle will roll away from the center of the road if th...
yes if it is someone else's private road
There isn't a driveshaft to disconnect. That vehicle is a front engine, front wheel drive layout. It uses a transaxle, which combines the transmission and differential into one package. You need to put the front axle on a dolly.If the front wheels are on the dolly, you're good to go.
The most common cause of wet/damp starting problems is moisture inside the distributor cap. Remove the cap and look for signs of moisture or better yet just replace the cap and rotor.Ignition wires are bad. Try this, once you have it running again take an old spray bottle and mix up a solution of...

The average cost for a Ford F-150 wheel bearing replacement is between $282 and $325.Labor costs are estimated between $132 and $168 while parts are priced between $150 and $157.Estimate does not include taxes and fees.
It depends a bit on the bicycle, the age of the riders and the local laws - but yes, it may well be illegal. Two adults on the same bicycle is often illegal unless the bicycle is specially built for that purpose - like a tandem.One adult is usually allowed to carry a kid (depending on weight/age ...
One fuse protects the instrument cluster (all the gauges). It should be a 5 or 7.5 amp mini fuse located in the inside fuse center. If the fuel gauge is the only gauge not working, it's not the fuse.
The VIN number will always be located in the lower left(driver's) side of the drivers side windshield\dash area. You will have to view it from outside of the vehicle. It will be on a plate the is riveted to the dash. Hope this helps you.
When you step on the gas it seems like it wants to stall and loses all power you have a 2002 ford windstar?
Plugged fuel filter? Plugged air filter? Loose timing chain? Plugged catalytic converter?
What would cause the front right wheel on your 1998 Ford Ranger 4x4 to make a ratcheting winding sound just before you come to a complete stop?
The ratchet winding noise on the Ranger 4x4 could be a wheel bearing or brake issue. There could also be problems in the front differential. Check all three for any problems. The 1998 Ranger noise is most likely coming from a brake grinding against a rotor, or a bad wheel bearing. Either of these...
whatever it is Ford dropped the ball BIG TIME here. There are fog lights on the vehicle no visible way to turn them on. Thanks Henry , I heard u were kinda cheap.The vehicle must have come with a drivers manual. Consult the manual for that info.
Max towing capacity, 5000 lbs.
If the check engine light comes on while you're driving, it can be unnerving.The check engine light means there's a problem somewhere in your emissions system.Regardless, you're safe to drive for now as long as the car isn't performing strangely.Just have the check engine light checked and the pr...
It is not safe to drive with the airbag light ON.When the light is on, it means that there is a problem with the airbag system.When there is a problem with the system, it will not deploy the airbags at all in an accident.If you have an error in your airbag control unit, your airbag will not work ...
It is only safe to drive with the TCS light on if it appears when you are losing traction: it means the system is engaging.Driving without traction control can make your vehicle susceptible to spinning out and sliding around on the road.This allows you to maintain control of your vehicle at all t...

Sure, if the dashboard is made out of wood.
Why You Shouldn't Wrap Your Food in Aluminium Foil Before Cooking It.But while cooking your food in aluminium pots or pans isn't a bad thing, placing it in foil and putting it in the oven is problematic.This is especially true with acidic or spicy food that's prepared at high temperatures.
Is it safe to drive with the steering system warning light on? No.Without power steering, the vehicle will be very hard to maneuver.You will need to use a lot of caution when driving, so it's best to not use the vehicle at all if you can avoid it.
Is it safe to drive when the service required warning light is on? While your car's drivability shouldn't be affected, driving for extended periods with the light on will cause excess wear and tear on the engine.Engines are expensive so keep your wallet full by maintaining your vehicle on a regul...
if turn signals are working , and brake lights not working, i would replace the stop light switch on the brake pedal
You should be able to on most but there are many classes of motor homes and towing capacity differs, if it's on the lower side, even if you can you may not want to. Gas mileage on a MH is already abysmal, who wants to get 10 mpg and go 45 on the freeway. Look up towing cap on yours and curb weigh...
1999-model vehicles do not have switches to turn off passenger air bags. This design feature came several years later, and only lasted until 2nd-generation air bags became mandatory in 2006.
New compressor but it is not running and it has power to it and the air will be cold for one minute but after that it is hot on a 2000 Ford Windstar?
most likely air in the system, incorrect pag oil, low refrigerant.
While multi car insurance policies can offer significant discounts, it's not always cheaper than insuring the cars separately with different providers.This could mean that one car is pushing up the overall cost of the quote when they could get a cheaper quote with another insurer separately.
It is called an inertia switch. It shuts off the fuel pump when it detects a collision or a rollover. This switch will disable the fuel pump so it doesn't continue to pump fuel and possibly add "fuel to the fire". This switch can be manually reset when all is well.It's also known as an antigravit...

If your household has more than one vehicle, then it's generally cheaper to insure all vehicles under a single policy than under multiple policies.All insurance companies offer multi-car policies.Insuring two cars together with the same provider is cheaper than insuring both cars separately.
we can change it through decreasing its value.
The 3.0 or the 3.8 engine uses a chain.
The fuse box legend is in the drivers manual.
Either remove the driveshafts, or you either trailer it or put it on a rollback.

Yes if you use the correct gasket material for the job.
It's safe for humans and pets so there shouldn't be a concern to use it in your vehicle.Sprinkle it around the car, then after a few days vacuum the car out again.Insecticide Strips: Instead of using a messy spray, you can find insecticide strips at home improvement stores.
Driving with a slow leak in your tire is potentially dangerous because it can cause a flat tire.Once the tire becomes flat, it can become a blowout hazard.It is best to get the tire looked at by a mechanic so they can diagnose the problem and repair the leak and/or the tire.
If the muffler has a hole in it, carbon monoxide can leak into the vehicle.If the cause of a loud muffler is not a defect, it is just loud, it may not be as dangerous to drive, but you may get pulled over because of the noise.Signs of a broken muffler include a clunking sound while the vehicle is...
