Abstract

A method of starting an internal combustion engine which minimizes the power needed to rotate the engine until it starts. The method comprises the steps of rotating an engine in the reverse direction until a predetermined load torque level for rotating the engine is obtained and then immediately switching the direction to the normal rotational direction, thereby accelerating the rotation of the engine.
