Due to the garage not putting the oil filler cap on properly (remembers torched GTE 8v) and the explosion of crude from the cooler 8 days ago my engine is a bit mucky.
Oil has been burning off the underside and generally dripping for a while but I wanna clean things up more where it can be seen. Doubtless it's under the plug cover but it's all over hoses and things and that's not great.
Is there some gunk I can use or am I best with the brake cleaner stuff? what about Carb cleaner? I know it's highly flammable but dont it evaporate when it's done it's job?
I'm not gonna pressure wash or anything since I dont want the problems later on should I dislodge something or loosen something I cant see. Sledge hammer to crack a nut really, the engine isn't caked but it's annoying.
