Engine Cleaning - Almost a success
Well, I was giving the car a good cleaning today, and thought I would give the engine a shampoo while I was at it. Was real careful. Covered the alternator. No high pressure spray on any electrical components. Well, engine came out looking great, but it idled like crap afterwards and hesitated under power. The drive was a short one (5 minutes), and it didn't clear itself up during it. Hoping it will dry out overnight and run ok in the AM. At least it will be light then and I can see what is going on. Will take this to the appropriate mechanical forum if I find an issue.
Read lots of success stories here about engine cleaning. Couple of problems too. I guess mine falls into the latter category.....
