Depends on how deep the mud is. If it is just a greasy surface mud and the vehicle hasn't sunk, traction can be found by placing material under the drive wheels - hessian, old carpet, sandmats, twigs and small branches and even snow chains can be pressed into service. A very delicate throttle control is needed and stick shift cars are more successfully moved in poor conditions. Spinning the drive wheels makes things worse so only enough torque should be produced as the available traction can cope with.
Some pushing from friends is also helpful.
If the mud is deep and the vehicle has sunk into it the best method is to tow or winch the vehicle out. The tow vehicle should be positioned on good ground and a tow rope of sufficient length to reach the stranded car used.
Rocking the car can sometimes be helpful if there is some traction and some backwards and forward motion before the wheels spin. Gently drive the car backwards and forwards without spinning the wheels and the distance travelled tends to become longer. By repeating the process many times it is sometimes possible to roll yourself a runway of a couple of yards so starting from one end sufficient speed can be achieved to bump over the end and keep moving.
It needs practice, patience and a very delicate throttle control as the wheels must not spin.
which tranny? AUto or stick
ill guess, auto.
is foot off brake PEDAL?
yes then the failure is in the starter solinoid, or starter relay bad.
pull tiny wire lug off solenoid, if that fixes it, then the key line is stuck hot. if not, starter is bad. (Solenoid part)
The key switch energizes the relay , pull relay to see if it stops this starter stuck, if yes, its bad or the key switch is stuck.
if it still cranks with relay pulled, then solenoid tiny wire
the starter is TOAST> !
