Do you need a transmission to start an engine ?

WITHOUT !! the automatic transmission attached, I tried starting my truck, to check for leaks, but It will not start.

Is there a way to do it. IF possible ?

Yes its possible, but the ECM will need to know that the trans is in either neutral or park. This owuld be accomplished by positioning the shifter position switch in the neutral or park position. It is niormally located in that black plastic box on the side of teh transmission. Take that off the trans, plug it into the proper connector, then turn the switch until theengine turns over.
You would of course need a flexplate or flywheel in place to turn teh engine over using the starter.

Thanks for that Hogg

seems clear and straight forward.

It's good someone on the trans & rearend forum knows enough about automatic trannies and their relation to engines to clearly answer this question.
