Is it possible to jump-start a car without jumper cables? Definitely! Here are some ways to do it:

How to jumpstart a manual transmission car?
If you have a manual transmission car, you can try the push-start method. First, make sure it’s on terrain that will help give the car some momentum, and then try reversing, braking, or turning off the lights before continuing this process. If these steps don’t work for you, find someone nearby who can push your vehicle uphill, so gravity helps get things going.
The extra force will give your car enough momentum to escape from the vehicle. While spare hands are pushing your car, please turn on the ignition and switch it into second gear. Then, kindly wait a few moments before you release the clutch quickly, so your engine builds up some steam and avoids stalling out when you put pressure into it; this is where most cars get stuck in snow or mud holes.
If there’s still no start after these steps, press down firmly repeatedly while keeping an eye on what’s happening with others who have come by to help push.
