Best Answer

IF it is a manual transmission, you can push the car with the clutch pedal down, and then release the pedal after you moving and it will cause the engine to turn over and run. IF it is an automatic, try rapping on the starter while someone cranks it. Temporary fixes.

Please note that rapping the starter with tools can break the pole pieces inside the starter case, and it can result in damages that could have been avoided.
