  2.  avoid prolonged idling.

    Avoid running the engine at idle speed for more than 20 minutes.

  3. avoid a spark jump test.
  1.  Perform a spark jump test only when absolutely necessary. Perform this test as rapidly as possible.
  2.  While testing, never race the engine.
  1. avoid a prolonged engine compression measurement.

    Engine compression measurements must be performed as rapidly as possible.
