You mean, even if I pull the fuse out, it will likely start (if there's spark) because there's some leftover fuel in the rail? If I understand that correctly, then I would pull both the fuse and the DIC connector so that I can ensure it won't start and have the pistons generate some pressure and movement (but wouldn't that pressure be lost by the time the connector and fuse are put back?...)
I'll get them to charge the battery in the car before doing this.
Probably okay to just start the car, but I'd like to be protective and take whatever precautions I can.
So I'm thinking:
- Charge the battery
- Pull fuse out for fuel pump and DIC connector
- Do a series of bursts to get things moving a create a bit of pressure (see above question though about it being lost)
- Put it all back in and start the car as usual, watching the pressure light ensuring it goes off
Thanks again for the thoughts
