  • Can you start an automatic car by pushing it?

    In most (if not all) cases, you cannot "bump-start" a car equipped with an automatic transmission by getting it rolling "in gear" (either by pushing, pulling, rolling down a hill, or otherwise). There are a few reasons, all of which tend to have to do with fluid pressure.
  • Can you bump start a car with a bad starter?

    If by jump start you mean connecting the non start car via cables to another car's battery then it will not help as it is still the bad starter that must turn the engine and and extra battery is not going to help. No, if the starter is bad that's it. If it's a manual transmission you may be able to push start it.
  • What are the symptoms of a bad starter on a car?
