I want know how to clean some parts. I've never done it. I have a engine x-member that has 20+ years of grease and grime on it and I want it to look like new. What do I do? I don't have a pressure washer or a parts washer, but that'd be nice I'm sure.:rolleyes:

Take it down to the car wash place. Spray it down with the cheapest engine de-greaser you can find,(wal-mart) and power wash it with the wand.
It works Great..Of course,there is a environmental impact issue to consider. You can use Simple Green and it works well,but is kinda expensive.
It doesnt take much,thou. The car wash place I go to has some kind of water seperation system for the run off. Good Thing!

Sometimes a few cement blocks, old rims, etc. help to stop from chasing the parts around the stall.

Or trying to get all the angles while holding the part.
