Never tow a vehicle to start it: Towing a vehicle to start it is dangerous. The vehicle being towed could surge forward when its engine starts, causing the two vehicles to collide. The occupants could be injured.

CAUTION:
Do not push-start a vehicle that has a manual transmission. It can damage the emission control system.

You can't start a vehicle with an automatic transmission by pushing it.
