towing capacity??

I have no clue if I have this thread in the right place. But I will try. Could a 04 or 05 Mitsubishi endeavor pull 4000 lbs??? I am wanting to tow something but don't know it it has the towing capacity to do so. It has the 3.8 l v 6 in it. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Info I get says it`s highest is 3500 for a `07. If it has a automatic it would have to be towed in drive and it would have to have a transmission cooler to keep from cooking it.

I found myself between a rock and a hard place a couple of years ago, having to use a 2005 Toyota Corolla to tow a 1700 lb trailer from Arizona to Wisconsin. The specs said 1500 lb tow capacity, so being in a hurry, I took the car to U-Haul and had a hitch and the largest trans cooler that would fit on the car installed.

On the trip, I shifted out of overdrive and down a gear on hills to baby the transmission. Took a little longer to get there, but the trans is still intact and operating well to this day. (car belongs to a friend who lives in Wisconsin).
