    Hey,

    My engine is looking abit neglected and was wondering what's the best stuff to use on it and also how to clean it?

    Is it advisable to jet wash the engine using a pressure washer?

    Or would you just get a watering can and spray it over carefully?

    All abit confusing really... thanks!
