Yes and no...some people can do it while stopped and the gears will mesh just fine. Other's can't...it'll just grind and won't pop in. If yours grinds, you should be rolling VERY VERY slowly...like no more than about 3mph. Just enough for the gears to be moving a little bit and when they're positioned right, they'll pop right in as you're pulling the handle up. They say you should also be in neutral when shifting into 4LO with an auto I dunno how you would do that while slowly rolling...I guess, pop it into neutral and when it slows to a crawl, yank the handle? With my 5 speed, I figured I'd just clutch it while doing the shift. Never really thought about that part since mine always engages flawlessly while stopped.
