I bought some engine degreaser and tomorrow I'm going to clean the engine, I didn't know which degreaser to get so I bought two different versions.


This one was featured in a Motorweek Goss'* Garage segment


This one is a name brand I know and trust and it looks better

Use the Gunk first. It'll cut the grime alot better. Get the big stuff with it.

I used Gunk and was very pleased with the results.

By the way...you may want to let your engine sit open for a day or two after using the Gunk. I'm not sure about the other stuff, but the Gunk has a strong odor that lasts for a while.

Just remember to cover your sensors.
