Simple Green and Lysol All-Purpose Cleaner. First time I cleaned the engine was about 4 months ago with simple green, good stuff, except I did not concentrate on the rear bank and lower part of the engine. Took care of that the second time with Lysol and let it soak for a couple minutes and rinsed engine bay thoroughly. Then used the shop vac to suck loose water and also to blow dry everything. After that I ran to the local car wash, used High-Pressure soap then High-Pressure rinse, didnt do much expect get rid of loose dirt and clean out hard to reach places. Then I used Armor-All on the plastics pieces, not the hoses. Finally wiped down everything and let it dry.:thumbsup:
Looks brand new. Great job! How did you manage to keep the water from getting to the cat convertor? Twice I've washed my engine bay, and twice I've had to take it to the shop within a day or two of the washing due to water getting into the cat.
Great job! I'm very fastidious when it comes to having a clean engine bay, so it's great to see someone else who takes a pride in how theirs looks. Looks like it was well worth the effort. I wasn't surprised to read that you used Simple Green, that stuff works wonders. Nicely done :thumbsup:
