Nice thread Art!
I need to get around to this myself eventually, just scared that with my luck some other electric component will get wet, and then I'll have something to diagnose, and fix.

I found that degreaser on amazon and a few people on e-bay are selling cans for like 15-20$

Amazon.com: LPS Labs 01420 Presolve Orange Degreaser (15-Ounce): Sports & Outdoors Amazon.com: LPS Labs 01420 Presolve Orange Degreaser (15-Ounce): Sports & Outdoors


15 oz Can LPS Presolve Orange Degreaser 01420 Additionals SHIP Free | eBay

William Thanks for the Thread compliment..Thanks button is on the right side LOL...
Especially in winter, I am not gentle with the power washer ..My boat needs to be salt free whenever possible.
The 4 areas I really don't blast hard are wiper motor, fuse block, (cover ALT) and careful around fans, not to get water in back of fan motor so cover them too if u are going to blast the blades.
So dont worry..I do this often, start the car up, and go get it dry by a highway boogie!
A Happy Buick is a clean Buick under the hood!
