I want to clean under hte hood of my 91 Stealth RT/T. I would like to have it nice and shiny and looking new. I have seen some dealers selling older model cars...that look goregous under the hood! Any suggestions on what to use?
Do not use that spray foam stuff. I did it and it broke down the oil and they washed away but it left a white residue. I used some armoral ro clean the vavle cover and it turned out great and used some high gloss tire cleaner for the hises and plug wires (just be careful with the plug wires) Simple green and a tooth brush work great also.
Use a good degreaser from autozone or something. Spray the hell out of everything but the battery and the fuse box. Then spray it off. Then use a follow up shiner. I use High Endurance Tire Shine on my intake hose. Keeps it real shiney. Then I painted a few pieces under the hood.
Worth it to pay a detail shop to just steam clean engine, let them handle the crap that comes off and you can detail the clean engine after they are done. Steam cleaning is the most effective way to get the grease, grime off. After that, well, Tire shine products for hoses, plastic covers etc.
