James: is that Stoner stuff silicone based? and how long does it keep the plastic looking good. Does it have black dye in it?

Brent,That looks nice. Which S-100 product did you use? Is that the one for painted cycle engines that sprays on? Thanks, ~Hugh :munch

For those that have recommended Simple Green, it works well, but be aware that rubber belts do not like it - it does something to their surfaces that make them squeek a *lot*. I had to replace brand new belts one time because I used Simple Green to clean the engine right after putting the belts on.

I used ORANGE 409 household cleaner. Sprayed it on the engine when cool, let it soak a few minutes, then hosed it off. The engine came out very clean, with no pitting of metal surfaces. I blew the water out of the intake bolt holes with a can of computer air duster and wiped black rubber parts with a cloth. Looked almost like new! Also did my 2001 Intrepid the same way. Same results. Highly recommended.

I finally found the S-100 stuff (Total Cycle Cleaner) and used it yesterday. It's fast, easy, and does a great job. A little of it goes a long way. ~Humanx 0]

Bump/It's been a year since anyone posted to "How do you clean your engine." There must be a lot of clean 300M engines out there. :bounce ~Humanx 0] :bounce

Mine could use a scrub down. I'm ashamed for it to look as dusty as it does.

Try the S-100 Total Cycle Cleaner. You can find it at motorcycle shops. Follow the instruction exactly and have some compressed air to blow out areas where water accumulates. ~Humanx 0]

I do believe that's a picture of Holly the Clay Girl in civilian clothing. I noticed it's the same necklace. ~Humanx 0]

Gee wiz...big hooters waxing the car. That is a good site on a serious note. Excellent instructions and pictures. Meguiars also has an excellent site with video.
