Engine clean required


Recommended Posts


I want to clean my WRX engine.


It looks like a previous owner had an anti-freeze pipe or tank or radiator burst all over it, or could it could be some sort of spray on preservative like Supaguard perhaps?


I was thinking of using my old steam wallpaper machine to steam it off using only the hose attached. I don't really want to use Gunk because that's really messy and likely to do more damage.


Can anyone suggest what I can use to get this thick green film off please? With Thanks.

I used autoglym machine cleaner and a toothbrush , it's water based so does need rinsing off with water but it worked well .

Have a search on here as there's a thread somewhere with a few products and methods already tried and tested .

Don't forget the before and after pics [emoji6]
