Re: engine cleaning

I've had very bad experiences with engine cleaning. All of a sudden,
you'll get false warnings and the like. Short sensors, cause oil pressure
switches to leak, etc. *NOT*  a good idea. If it bothers you, go over the
dirtiest areas with a rag, or something. The temp. that the engine runs at
if clean is not significantly lower to warrant cleaning. Most cases,
