Best Answer

Manual cars can be started with a bad starter due to the ability to roll start the car. Automatic transmission cars are not so lucky.

To roll start a manual car all you need to do is put the car in gear with the key in the "on" position, push in the clutch, get the car to roll, then quickly release the clutch. The transmission will slam into the engine and force it to turn. Don't forget to push the clutch back in once it starts or the car will stall.
