That's why it is good to get a BMS Oil Catch Can on there early. Keeps that crap out.

If you are auto, just unplug the coils, and blip the start button. It will just crank for a second (but obviously not start). You may have to do it 2-3 times to get the right cylinders, but this only takes a minute or two. IMO, much easier than trying to turn the crank pulley.

About to clean my valves, but isn't it dangerous to use a vacuum to suck out the carb cleaner? Flammable liquid + spark from vacuum = big boom?

Also I need advice on how to get the two open valves to close, can't figure out how to do it.

That's been addressed a couple times in this thread and your absolutely right.

I can tell you that I sucked mine out with a shop vac and used a wore-out sock as a filter on the inside of the bucket just to knock down the mist. I'm still alive but I may just be lucky.

If I were to do it again then I'd probably dilute it with water as I sucked it up like a dentist if that makes sense.

I pulled the fan to get to the crank pulley. Kinda a pita but it only adds an hour or so

Would a remote starter kit work? I'd honestly rather spend the $15 than take apart one more damn thing lol.

dont take this the wrong way- but if you cant figure out how to turn the engine over, you SHOULDNT be doing this, just because you want to save a few bucks.

I'm planing on doing this soon..@53k miles now. But is it nessasary to remove that fuse connector/box that everyone is having trouble removing to clean the valves?

Yes, You can't get the intake off without getting it off first. It is attached to the bottom of the intake.

the clip that holds the connector to the valve cover or the actual connector on the O2?
