GM S10/S15/Sonoma Pick-Ups 1982-1993 Repair Manual



Chevrolet and GMC trucks can be towed on all four wheels (flat towed) at speeds of less than 35 mph for distances less than 50 miles, providing that the axle, driveline and engine/transmission are operable. The transmission should be in Neutral, the engine should be OFF , the steering column unlocked, and the parking brake released.

Do not attach chains to the bumpers or bracketing. All attachments must be made to the structural members. Safety chains should be used. It should also be remembered that power steering and brake assists will not be working with the engine off.

The rear wheels must be raised off the ground or the driveshaft disconnected when the transmission is not operating properly, when speeds of over 35 mph will be reached, or when towing more than 50 miles.

If a truck is towed on its front wheels only, the steering wheel must be secured with the wheels in a straight ahead position.
