tell them to just pull the plugs and then crank the engine. that'll "remove the gas" from the cylinders. then when the plugs spark, the airborne fuel will take care of itself.

but hide in the bushes near by to watch the fun show. get video. call 911 too.

When I reinstalled one motor I pulled, I accidentally pinched the injector wiring harness under the engine hoist bolt/hook. This grounded the injectors so when I turned they car on, they basically dumped fuel and hydrolocked the motor.

Don't have anyone smoking in the vacinity when you pull the plugs and crank the motor over!
