How to Turn-overEngine without Starting?

(RCielec) #1

Ahoy !
Re: 2002 4.0L 8 cyl. Not Supercharged.
What needs to be disconnected /how do I identify/Does anything need to be reset so that the engine turns-over but does not start ?
I’ve purchased the car in which the engine has not been started for ten months. Prior to starting the engine, I shall change oil&filter then, wish to turn-over engine without starting to circulate fresh oil and increase oil pressure.
I have not yet chased down service nor owner’s manuals.
I honestly admit the 2002 technology will be a learning experience for me. On my 1961 Mk II, I know what the coil wire looks like. On this newly purchased 2002, I am clueless.
I reside in the greater Chicago Metro area and will gladly drive to anyone kind enough to show me.
Thanks.

If you can ind and pull the fuse for the fuel pump that will allow you to turn the engine over without it firing.

Pulling Fuse 47 or Relay 15 in the Rear Power Distribution Fuse Box ought to do it.

Thanks, all.
Will pulling the fuse for the fuel pump trigger any fault codes ?

It may do but they should reset with a battery disconnect?
