No need.
Ignition off and remove each plug connector is all that's needed.

Yes there's a lot of crossovers out there.
A Mitsubishi Di-D I work on has a Mercedes-Benz engine of all things.

Is this tester any good, is it capable of reading 2 ohms?
I see 200k but tbh I dont know what that means lol.

I tried testing 2 of the plugs like in the video but it didnt seem to be reading anything. Do I need a proper tester to do this really?

I only got this tester for testing broken appliances.

That multimeter should be plenty good enough.
As mentioned in the video I linked, it needs to be on the lowest resistance setting so 200 ohms in your case and the case for most cheap meters.

Ohh, hang on, the lowest setting? So should that be on 20K?

I just turned the dial at the ohms symbol, but that relates to the whole green 1/4 of the dial doesn't it.

No, 200 which is the furthest right in the green ohms section.
20k is 20000.

You have a 20 Ohm range on it! Use that!

The ranges, going clockwise in Ohms are :

20
200
2k
20k
200k
2M (2 million Ohms)

The 20 Ohm range is at just before the 6 o'clock position.

I would love to know what engine is in this if not volvo, so I can write them a strongly worded letter lol... that was a nightmare, almost lost a few digits.

Tested all 4 as best I could. For some reason holding ground on the engine block gave no reading like in the video. Actually hold both probs on the engine block gave nothing, so cant be conductive. Alloy?
So I had to hold one prob on the top of the plug and the other just below on the thread. No easy feat!

Anyway, 2 plugs were 1.2, and 2 plugs stopped on 0.7. Both below the suggested 2 ohms. Is this a good thing or not?

Can they all stay in place? Next stop glow relay in the ECM?

Thanks

You may have to scratch the surface to get a good earth on the engine

I would clean up the engine earth while you're in there just as a matter of course
