    put car into second.

    roll like hell with clutch pressed.

    release clutch and the engine should turn.
    Will probably break 2nd gear, and will definitely not be covered under warranty.

    that wouldn't break the gear...?!

    A friend of mine did this with his Suzuki Samurai, another friend with his BMW Z3...it worked both times without breaking anything...

    With the z3, he rolled backwards out of the driveway and let the clutch out in reverse and the car started.

    Keep in mind, I don't do this with my car...that's what the key is for.

    I'll have to give that pump priming a try. Weather.com said it was -7 this morning, feeling like -27 (cause windchill was like -40 or something). I think my car actually calle me a f**ker this morning for starting it.

    USE FIRST GEAR. Why do people keep recommending second gear for a bump start?!!??

    Put the car in first get it rolling at like five mph and slip out the clutch quickly, yet smoothly.

    When my car was running with nothing but the TXS DP, I had to bump start it because of how loud a key start was. Ask Wrinkleboi, I did it several times in one night. It's not a big deal.
