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.

Pros

  • Reasonably Priced
  • Removes Oil And Grease
  • Smells nice

Cons

  • Doesn't Taste Good

Best Uses

  • After Repairing A Leak

Comments about Advance Auto Parts Heavy Duty Engine Degreaser:

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.

          What more can you say? It does what it is named, degreaser. Spray it on, let it sit for a few, spray it off with a hose. What could be easier?

          I was suprised how well this works. I had a dirty NASTY motor that had oil leaks for a long time. This cleaned it really well. If your motor is really nasty get a couple cans and do it twice.

          • Great belt cleaner

          Comments about Advance Auto Parts Heavy Duty Engine Degreaser:

          I had grease contaminated serpentine belts from seasonal oil based rustproofing. Sprayed down my belts and pulleys with this cleaner at the spray wash, briefly starting and stopping the engine to ensure I covered all parts of the belts and pulleys. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and then rinsed everything down with the high pressure rinse cycle. Started car and continued to rinse to ensure all product was removed. Belts run nice and tight and quiet now, well worth the effort without changing out good belts or hand cleaning the pulleys.
