This stuff works great to clean heavy grease/oil deposits when finding the source of an oil/fluid leak. Just be sure to cover all rubber of foam hoses and parts. I used saran wrap and it worked good, the wrap dissolved a bit after 20 minutes so don't leave it on too long. I threw water on it and pump sprayed the rest paying particular attention to the hoses and wiring,later pressure washing. It's kerosene based so watch out for dissolving hoses, they can literally disappear.

      I used the Advance Auto Parts, Heavy Duty Engine Degreaser before removing the oil pan and timing cover on an old F150 5.0 engine. The degreaser product works well and doesn't have obnoxious odors.

          Always worth the effort and cost to clean your engine prior to tear-down(s). Cleans up your work area of focus of grease and grime and a cleaner work area always seems more productive. I wuse this cleaner on a recent timing belt change just to get the engine surfaces in clean condition. Helped with identifying certain "marks" needed to ensure I kept the engine timeing aligned as well as mitigated the time needed to find and install all the pieces removed.

            Good product, but the material inside, it seems very little compare to other product (more volume), two cans to do the entire engine.

            It's cheap and it shows. It does not eat through grease like you would expect. A can of brake clean would do a better job.

                Very good at removing oil and grease. As always, follow the directions. This will not magically dissolve an inch thick layer of grease. If you try to do that, you're just lazy.

                    Works great; get a few cans if engine is really greasy. Then one can a year makes working on your car so much easier/cleaner. Just be forewarned engine/car will be smelly for several weeks.

                        Thank you for your question Eric. You should not need to remove all hoses and cover connectors when using this. Just use lightly and cover items that should not come in contact with water such as the distributor etc.
