You can if you put it in neutral and push it to get a good enough start and try starting it and if it does then try to put it in drive and go

yes and no you can not push start an automatic car. but if you can get it up to about 35 to 40 mph and put it in drive it will work

but it is not worth the trouble .

I would NOT do this unless you want to take the chance of buying a new transmission.

You can not push start todays automatic cars. The engine drives the transmission hydraulic pump, not the driveshaft. Only the early Hydramatic transmissions from the 1940's and 50's you could push start if you got the vehicle up to aprox 25 mph or more.
