the usual leaks, smoke, steam and turn it over with the efi fuse taken out for 10-15seconds till the oil light goes out before u put back in the fuse and start it. It'll get oil pressure up and around the engine for the first start

I'm going to start my car for the first time in a few months, should i turn it over a few times with the efi fuse out first?
