    I think my starter finally died in my '88 Ranger, I was lucky enough to get a push-start from one of my buddies who just happened to be borrowing a big, old Blazer while his car is in the shop...

    I got back to my apartment, and I doubt I'll be able to start it back up again. But anyway, will my 2.3L 5 speed be able to handle a push start in reverse? I'll probably end up having to change the starter in the muddy driveway here, but if I'm lucky, I'd like to drive it home and do it in the garage...
  2. Wouldn't be any worse on the engine than turning it over with the starter. Good luck with the part swap.
