Can You Tow a Vehicle w/Auto Transmission?
needing to purchase a standard transmission Dakota
so that he could tow it directly behind his camper
I know the thinking of the past was that you could
not tow an Auto transmission without disconnecting
the driveshaft first. As I remember, that was
true because the transmissions of "old" actaully
had 2 pumps- 1 front and 1 rear. The rear pump is
what allowed you to push start the vehicle
providing you got it up to 25-30 MPH.
It is my understanding that the rear pump has not
existed in transmissions for 15 yrs or more.
So---- then , is it OK to tow the vehicle- or not?
Any experience or factual knowledge on this topic
