I had my car oil changed this past weekend. After I left the oil change place, I took a look at my car engine. And it was dusty. I guess they don't have the time to clean all people's car engines!
But, I wondered what folks at oil change place think of my engine's appearance.
So I decided to "polish" my car engine area this evening - just to give an impression on oil change place folks next time I go there. I wish I had taken a picture of my car engine area prior to cleaning it.
Last Saturday, I bought this stuff (and towels for car cleaning) at an Auto Zone store, not far from my home:
2 days later (this evening), I found the time to clean my car engine area. I opened my car hood for the 2nd time this weekend -- I told myself this, "Sure enough my engine looked dirty, better start cleaning now". I used car engine cleaner with towel and proceeded - I basically wiped most parts.
Now my car engine area looks brighter (but I am not done, I will clean again later on this week to make it even look brighter):
Under my car hood was in serious need of dusting so I clean wiped it with car engine cleaner (foam was foamy and easy to spread with towel). You could tell I missed some areas (lol):
Now, my car engine area looks whole lot better. I guess I should keep cleaning it on monthly basis. I think it does help my car engine last longer. Here is one of the towels I used to clean my car engine area (yes, it looks dirty):
Hope you like my little storytelling - and that someone will do what I did today.
