in some trouble..

Right now im up at the family cabin in New Mexico. I towed a trailer with fire wood 12 hours from home in west texas. We only brought one vehicle, being my truck. Where we're at, the closest town is an hour and a half away, and nobody I know lives there.

My problem is I let my truck die.. We have no electricity up here and I have no way to jump my truck. (I've had quite the time hiking to a place so i can get some help from y'all) Is there any way I can get it started? Is it possible to roll down a hill in nuetral then drop it into first or second and get it started, such as you can do with a standerd? Any advice or help GREATLY appreciated!

-Austin

I've bump started a few cars before. However they have been manuals. I would assume you can do it just as well in an auto.

Might have trouble if it is really cold, but being in new Mexico you prolly don't have that problem.

you cant push start an auto. the torque coverter and pump wont work that way. unfortunately, there is not a whole lot you can do. your best bet is to hoof it to the closest person or place, and ask for some help.

I have bump started my mothers old CJ7 everytime I drive it. But im not sure if it'll work in an auto. I'll give it a try, but any other feedback from anybody would be great. I am going to give some more time for more people to reply before i walk back down.

drag a couple more battery's back with you that you kno are good and change them out, otherwise you need a another vehicle to boost you or a battery charger. you could take a chance on trying to get a booster pack? it works the same as a boost from another vehicle, but i never used one on a diesel so i wouldnt chance that option and having to walk again.

your best bets going to be to find someone to come boost you. or tow truck to come boost ya
