I was wondering what people would suggest to clean my engine bay, I've had a small oil leak for a few years so the dirt and oil is quick thick underneath.

Thanks
Glenn

Where's it leaking from? Can't go wrong with a rag and some engine cleaner.

Gunk or another engine degreaser. A toothbrush helps too so you can get the awkward areas.

Not too sure where its leaking from, its only a drop but has been for a while. I've been told its a engine out job to fix it.

Cheers Mike

I was looking for something I could spray on, then jet wash it off to get the majority off so I could find out where its leaking from.
