just get ya self a degreaser spray, cover all over the engine, put a plastic bag over your induction kit and use a hose pipe and lightly rinse off the degreaser!! then with a spunge, cloth and oapy water get ya self under the bonnet and get cleaning!! top it off with some polish on all the painted surfaces and autosol on the metel!! then you will have an engine bay as clean as mine :D

remember the remove the plastic bag befor driving :D

oooh u b@stard Ha Ha, it was clean before yes but not exactly gleaming apart from the actual rocker cover, like Neil says theres bloody oil all over cos I am a prat, I know what the problem is hopefully why theres oil leeking al over now so I am hoping to have that fixed for tomorrow, think it might be best to do a search or have a ring round
