Default Re: Please stand back it may blow!!!!!!!

I dont even have a 5 speed. I do however have remote start. It sometimes does not start on the first try when it is around 10 degrees or colder.

They do make remote starters for manual transmission vehicles. You gotta do a series of stuff before exiting the vehicle. I know you gotta activate the e-brake.

You can get an electronic cut out that fools your ECU into thinking the clutch is depressed, but then you HAVE to remember not to put the vehicle in gear or it will drive away lol I saw quite a few of these in Montana.

I had a 5 speed SHO, it wouldn't start unless the clutch was depressed. And yes, remote start is a no-no with manual trans. I remember when I was a kid my mom had a Toyota Tercel and she showed me what happens it you try to start a car with manual trans and don't depress the clutch... it'll leap forward!

Sounds like all it needed was the starter motor to get things rolling. I heard a story of a guy who had to pull his stalled truck out of an intersection on the starter
