|Ebxgsxr||when i worked in a shop, we used Gunk all the time. when we had a car that we had to add UV dye to find an oil leak, we used gunk to clean everything off & it worked great. but those were cars/trucks that had fluids all over it like oil. not sure how well it will do against mud. i bought a can & i'm going to try it on my TJ. just haven't gotten around to it yet.|

|SeVeReDiStOrTiOn||The bottle I bought years ago says concentrate on the front and there's dilute instructions on the back. I think they only sell it in concentrated form anyway but if they do sell it diluted you'd be getting ripped off unless it's a lot cheaper.|

I clean with full strength simple green and a dish washing brush meant for cups...it works good for tight spaces.

I forgot to mention....
I used "PPC Crud Remover" on the inside of my hood and then engine bay until I ran out (then switched to Pine Sol). It's strong but had no negative effects on paint, plastic or rubber. I'm going to get another bottle. I think I picked it up at my local CarQuest.
Here's a link: Crud Remover

I would NOT USE gunk. Harsh. Use Formula 409 instead. Works great and is mild. Use on a barely mildly warm engine that is off.
Otherwise, look for a simple degreaser that is VOC compliant-good for the environment.
Lightly wet the engine, spray degreaser, close the hood and let sit for about 10 minutes. Reapply degreaser. Let sit for 5 minutes. Wash down.
To make the engine look really new, spray a water based dressing on the engine, close the hood and let it sit for another 15 minutes. After that, wipe up excess. It'll look purty.
These are the two products I use:
Select Exterior Interior Cleaner / Degreaser | Car Brite
Select All Purpose Dressing | Car Brite

wet the engine then warm it up. Not hot, just good & warm. Soak it in full strength Simple Green, scrub any heavy oil areas you might have & respray then close the hood. Come back in 30 minutes & rinse well.
Take a can of F21 tire cleaner & spray all in the engine compartment (except alternator & sensitive electrical components). Spray from all angles. Spray all plastic & painted areas - everything.
Close the hood & wait 20 minutes. When you come back you will be shocked. The F21 isn't really very oily so it doesn't pick up dust & hold it like some cleaners will. Don't get me wrong, it is a little slick but just not greasy.

|RevCo666||I have a product called Gunk: Engine Shine (cleaner & Detailer) that I used to clean up my old pick up before selling it. Seemed to have worked well, anyone have some feedback on this product before I try it again, but this time on my jeep...??|
|05-03-2013 07:07 PM|
|Tyler237||So it turns out cd2 got bought out by turtle wax|

|Austin14||Just use some degreaser. Spray alot on and let it sit a minute. If it doesn't come off do it again but scrub everything|
