This car has sat for at least 2 yrs. After pulling the plugs what is the best fluid to put into the cylinders to help when restart. Also after putting in the fluid should I replace the plugs and start it or turn it over without the plugs then put the plugs in and restart the car.

sorry nobody responded. i would use a liberal amount of wd40 and turn it by hand with no plugs and valve covers off to make sure all the valves work correctly. put in new oil and filter. crank with starter without plugs to get oil to the top end. compression test and then fire up.

I would never use WD40 in the cylinders.
