The vehicle has to be pushed to a speed where the torque converter starts turning the engine over for it to start in first gear.

But by that time, you’ll damage the transmission.

What do you mean like “jump in first gear?” Does it jerk real suddenly when you start from a stop or if you shift to “D” from park?

Why, would I want posters like this to be welcome? So new posters think a nonsense post like this is the acceptable norm? This is a perfect example of what a first post should not be. There isn’t even a question. Now anyone who would like to help have to waste their time asking a dozen questions to find out any specifics. If you don’t even know how to ask a question please find someone who does.
