You can with some motors but not all.

The first problem is that an induction motor has no residual magnetism and generators need magnetism to generate electricity.

Here's a link to get you started.

Google "alternator". 

A car alternator is similar to an induction generator and you have to apply some power to it before it will generate anything.
