Engine removed - when to put spark plugs?
Posted 22 December 2004 - 12:25 AM
a) Install engine
"With the spark plugs out of the engine and the coil electrical connector (low voltage unplugged), crank the engine over until oil pressure registers on guage"
c) Install spark plugs, hook up plug wires, reconnect coil and fuel pump
I have a few questions:
1. Why spark plugs have to be out in above ? - they are pain to install with the engine in the car. If intent is to avoid a spark, can't I just unplug the spark plug wires or the coil connector to prevent sparking?
2. What does "low voltage" in above mean?
3. Oil pressure in would register on which gauge? I don't have an oil pressure gauge on dashboard...

You can also crank until the oil pressure light goes out and you could leave the plugs in as long as fuel or spark doesn't get into the cylinders.

Disconnect the crank sensor and the engine won't fire. Leave the plug wires on the plugs.

That way I don't have to worry about high voltage coil.
Is crank shaft sensor another option? You are saying keep coil connected, but just disconnect crank shaft sensor?
I just redid the head gasket, lubricated camshaft bearings with assembly lube - that's the only point that was exposed...

If your crankshaft hasn't been out, then there is probably little reason to worry.

I just unplugged the connector on ignition coil and put the plugs in before putting the engine back in. Worked fine.
