HELP, truck won't start!
please help. my truck is a 2001 4.0L auto 4x4 step side extra cab. it has 149,000 miles on it, and today i went to start it and it wont turn over. when i turn the key, its making a horrendous, almost metal on metal noise. i checked the oil and it has plenty, i tried pushing it and starting it with no luck (i'm not even sure that's possible in a auto)
my first thought is that the starter is busted. can i turn it over by hand with a socket or wrench? i need to get it home if possible. id rather not get it towed.
thanks in advance for any help!
