Can you put a car in neutral without starting the engine?
It is impossible. You won’t damage anything. However you should note that an automatic car can be started only with the lever in Park or Neutral, and in a manual car you should start the engine while the stick is in neutral position otherwise the car will lurch forward (or in reverse) possibly causing an accident.

Can I push my car in neutral?
A car in neutral can roll. This means it will be very difficult to steer and brake while the car is being pushed. Use extra force when steering the wheel or pressing the brake pedal.
How do you put a car in neutral manually?
Depress the clutch if you have a manual transmission, and move the gearshift to the center position on the gearbox. This is the neutral position. Release the clutch. Always engage the parking brake before putting your car in neutral.
Can automatic car be pushed?
Pushing your car that has an automatic transmission does not work. With an automatic transmission, you have an open clutch that stops you from being able to push start the car. In the manual version, you can close this to help you crank the engine to get it push started.
Can you move a dead car in neutral?
When you have a dead car battery, turning the key does nothing. If you press the brakes, no signal is sent, and the shift lock will not disengage. You definitely need to put it in neutral to move it, though, so it’s time for a little manual action.
