I put it into the spray bottle...sprayed it on. You could see the crud running off. Then sprayed the motor off with the hose. Tada!

You guys want to guess or would you rather I just said it was C.A.R. Products Maxiclean. Tough to get though. They sell to body shops and mechanics.

The industrial degreaser from Costco (looks like VERY green coolant) works the same. Impressive stuff.

I need to clean my engine bay. That looked really good afterwards. Before it was really pathetic. Mine isnt THAT bad, yet.
