>My son and I just picked up another TR7 to use as a parts car. It's in
decent shape and did run recently - won't turn over now.
ISTR from my early days with sick cars with automatic transmissions that it
possible to pull (or alternatively push) them to start - similar to popping
clutch on a manual tranny car. The process was to leave the transmission in
"D" and get the car to about 30 MPH and it would start. Perhaps my brain
are even fewer than I thought, or maybe I should stop smoking that Maui
Anyway, can anyone confirm or refute this process?
The old GM powerglide transmissions would do that (BTDT) but that is
because they had a second, driveshat driven pump (probably just for this
function) and the newer ones left that out to save cost.
Bottom line: Probably won't work. Sorry
