I cant believe I never knew about this, would also have thought it would have mentioned something in the haynes manual. I know they all have a generic "how to jump start a car" section copied and pasted into every manual but you would have thought it would have been mentioned! maybe it is and I've just never read it because I didnt know it was bad to jump start fords

Booster packs is the way to go. Throw them jump leads in the attic (copper will be worth more in the future)!
