Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Here is a reply of mine from just yesterday.
Can you understand what I have said to this owner?
Hope it makes sense.
I am talking about pulling behind a motorhome with a tow bar. Car in great running shape. I know it cannot be towed with the engine off, but wondering if I let the engine run, will it provide the lubrication necessary to the driveline? Or do I need to put it on a dolly? Thanks.

I would have the engine running, most likely select drive in the Jetta, while the tow vehicle is in Park, handbrake on, and then drive off in the tow vehicle.
I think the trans would be happier shifting gear by road speed, it would think you are just coasting down a long hill.
I would setup a gopro camera on the Jettas instruments.
