Starting up after a 4 month layover

Hi

Apologies if this has been asked before, but is there an easy to access fuse that can be pulled to allow the engine to crank for a while to circulate oil before attempting start up.

With it having sat for a while, I'm anxious for some oil to be circulated prior to starting.

Cheers

Graeme

It would have to be fuel injectors/pump or it would flood. Personally I would just start her.

Which fuse that is, you would have to consult the handbook.

I just pop the plugs off the injectors, then crank it until oil pressure then reconnect.

Yep, I just started it up as it was. No issues and it runs fine. Will test it properly tomorrow.

Cheers everyone and thanks for the advice.

The fuse for the fuel pump is in the boot, above the battery (20A yellow if memory serves me correctly). I usually pull this and crank over a few times if it has been sat for a while. Never had any problems from doing this that I know of...
