Back when I had the exhaust off the car, I sprayed it twice with engine cleaner and hosed it off, but to no avail. Last week, I went to the power wash place and try to blast the crap off with the high-pressure sprayer...that removed some, but there is still a ton left.
At this point, I'm contemplating just replacing the whole exhaust with one from a junkyard, but I'm sick of working on this car and I don't want to! I was also thinking of cleaning it off with a grinder with a wire brush wheel, but that might be more trouble than it's worth. Besides, I'm afraid there's probably more stuff under the heat shields as well. (BTW, I know it's not just an exhaust leak...it keeps smoking for several minutes after turning the engine off and I can see the smoke coming right off the goop.)
Anyone got ideas I'm missing?
