Engine Cleaning.

Introduction: Engine Cleaning.

About: Update 12 September 2017: A very special thanks to Sam Elder, a manager here at Instructables, who tracked down the cause of my lost publications and fixed the issue. Take a bow Sam!

With the wife's car engine, I wanted to give it a cleaning to remove at least some of the accumulated grime. Having a clean engine is great for spotting any oil leaks. Here is how I did a quick 15mins cleaning.

Step 1: Degreaser!

Good Ole engine degreaser. Cures all yuh ails.

Step 2: Application.

Spraying generous volume of degreaser I applied onto the heavy grime areas. I let it sit for about 5 minutes.

Step 3: Wiping.

Using an old rag I wiped the hard grime off the affected surfaces.

Step 4: Washing.

Using an old juice jug, I poured water to wash off the grime.

Step 5: Done!

Now the engine looks a little better. Once a month I will do this cleaning job until the grime is completely gone.
