Question about BMW 328
Push starting in the long run can damage several parts.
The manufacturers state that it can damage the catalytic converter because of the blow of engine gas getting to the exhaust system when the car is starting.
It can also damage the electronics and the injection system, because of the slight over voltage given when the engine kicks in, and because the car will first run lean, and then suddenly rich when the pump kicks in. In some case you can also risk overheating the pump, which is cooled by fuel running inside the part.
Damage from push start is not really frequent, but can occur. Better not taking too many chances, and fixing the starter motor as soon as possible.
