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
On that subject i had the exact same car which sat in my driveway for 7 years without the door so much as being unlocked , i then one day out the blue charged the battery and turned the key and it started like the day it was parked up ( due to loss of license )
.. Unbreakable engines !!
