What is the best product to clean an engine??
I have used different things and they seem to work ok, but I am looking for something that will really cut thru the grease and grime and shine and make everything look wet and good at the same time or maybe even a different product I can use to follow up behind a good cleaning!
Thanks for the help!

Meguiars APC 4/1 Followed by Hypersressing 3/1 or even full strength to really make it look slathered by a gloss.

Right. Add to that a blanket of your favorite dressing (we use Meguiar's Hyperdressing) and you're done. No need to wipe the dressign or anything. Just let it dry there...

First thing you have to do is soak it:



Then rinse:
