We have all heard the horrendous news about rising gas and oil prices. One of the best ways to help conserve gas, and therefore money, is to make sure that your vehicle's engine is properly cleaned. By cleaning your engine on a regular basis, and making sure that you do it properly, you are taking steps to ensure that your engine works the way it should. Unfortunately, cleaning an engine is not the same as cleaning the seats or windows in your car. Have no fear! Using this guide, your engine is going to be the cleanest it has been since you bought the car.

This is the biggest pile of horse manure I've seen in years! I've been a DIY auto mechanic for 48 years now (I can and have dropped engines in a driveway and replaced it the same day and re-built automatic transmissions myself) and if an engine has 2" of dirt, grease and oil caked on it, or is showroom clean, it won't make ANY difference in how it runs, how long it will run, or the fuel economy it gets. How clean the engine is INSIDE, where you can't see, is what makes the difference. Instead of cleaning the outside of your engine, change the oil every 3000 miles with a new oil filter, check your air filter every other oil change and replace at least once a year, and your engine will last longer than the body. My '85 Camry that will roll-over to 1 million miles next week and I've never opened the engine shows I know a heck-of-a-lot more about engines than this goober.
Terrible advice, you should have your engine compartment cleaned by someone that knows what they're doing .. it's not expensive.
