Any body have a good engine cleaner recomendation? This thing isn't a sludge pit or anything, just needs a good engine compartment detailing.
Thanks Rich

WD40 is a very effective degreaser, used with a couple 1" wide cheap paint brushes. Cut the bristles short on one brush so you can scrub the tough spots with it.

Good show - just don't drink the water in your downstream community.

Try simple green® All-Purpose Industrial Cleaner/Degreaser just be sure the engine is not real hot. This product is bio and can be added to the storm runoff with minimal damage to the environment...

Top-rated degreaser...

Rinse the engine with a very fine spray then wash everything down the driveway, out into the street then down the gutter.

You might want to pre-spray any grease spots on the driveway to take advantage of the cleanup.
