x2 on the Simple Green...... Some engines "may" need a little agitation to remove heavy grease or dirt.

TIP! Be VERY CAREFUL what you use on aluminum!..... Simple Green won‘t turn aluminum white.

Go to one of those "do it yourself" car washes that has the wand. Take a can of Gunk and a bunch of quarters and have at it.

Last time I cleaned an engine was my 03 6.0 Burb when I was getting ready to sell it. Water got under intake & had to replace the knock sensors. Daily drivers can stay dirty!

Thanks, I like the idea of no water since some have had issues with electronics.
