Re: Sticking, clicking valve lifters
I've been wondering about the under-carriage spray as well. Does this
mean that I can never have the under-carriage sprayed unless the engine is
shut down? Anyone else have any problems with the under-carriage spray in a
car wash, or does everyone just strap on a rubber suit, snorkel gear, and
fins before squirming under the car with a hose? Nice image, huh?
