Your engine looks brand new. Do you not drive your car, or do you wash and wipe it dailey to keep it like that? Right now I have road salt and dirt everywhere in my engine bay. Im about to go to the self car wash, leave the motor running, spray on engine degreaser then spray it down with water. Its 23 degrees out right now.

Re: How clean is your engine bay

I used that Orange stuff on mine that you can get for like 4 dollars a bottle, it works awesome, I just sprayed it on, waited 10 min and gently hosed it off, I only needed to do it once and that was the first time in like 3 and a half years. Its supposed to be less toxic and crap than gunk and other engine degreasers so I was surprised how well it worked. Its been like 2 months since I washed my car but the temps haven't left the 30's.
