Question Returning a car to the road

I have to dispose of a car that has stood on blocks for a number of years.

It is an 1996 Audi 1.8 se and was last driven some time in 1997 it has covered a total of less than 6.000 miles since new a one owner car .

I don't want to start the car without changing the oil /filters etc, Should I remove the plugs and squirt some oil down each plug first, should use a flushing oil .

The car is on stands so no weight on the tyres, I have not pressed the brakes and handbrake has being off the whole time.

I was going to move the car on as it is but need to mot the car so I can transfer the private plate.

Any advice gratefully received
