Pushing

Print

Chevrolet and GMC trucks with manual transmissions can be push started. To push start, make sure that both bumpers are in reasonable alignment. Turn the ignition switch ON and engage a high gear. Depress the clutch pedal. When a speed of about 10 mph is reached, slightly depress the gas pedal and slowly release the clutch. The engine should start.

Automatic transmission equipped trucks cannot be started by pushing.
