    Comments about CRC Brakleen® Brake Parts Cleaner, Non-Flammable, 20 oz.:

    new rotors or drums are shipped with an anti corrosive on them. I do not know if it is safe to leave it, so I use Brakleen to remove it. Also if you get any type of oil or grease on the rotor it must be removed. The does a quick job of it...

              Comments about CRC Brakleen® Brake Parts Cleaner, Non-Flammable, 20 oz.:

              I have been using CRC Brakleen since the 80's both as a professional mechanic, maintaing my own vehicles as well as a hobbyist. This product is excellent as an all-around cleaner and degreaser for just about anything. It is not only very effective for cleaning brake system parts but I have also used it on clutch parts and to spot clean areas in an effort to troubleshoot fluid leaks or even cleaning up after a repair. It even works great for knocking bees right out of the air, just don't get it in your eye!

                  Hi Natalie! I have searched online, but unable to find the shelf life of this cleaner with the manufacturer listings. I would suggest that you contact the CRC Industries directly at 800-521-3168 and they would be in a better position to help you.

              • Q:

                Can this product be used to clean oil and deposits on the engine under the hood without damaging electrical and plastic connectors?? I have an oil leak and since the oil is everywhere it is hard to find the leak and I have seen people on line suggesting many methods to clean but I am bit concerned about damage to electrical systems when using water to clean. My vehicle is toyota camry wagon 4cl 1992. Any suggestions?? Thanks.
