engine cleaning

this is my first post to a great site. i have a 96 psd with auto and have noticed a little oil dripping when the truck gets started. have also noticed oil on top of the engine in the valley. what is a good way to clean that area without messing with the electronics on top. mods include banks ottomind programer , k&n fipk, 3" downpipe to 4" exhaust ,hpx hose ,fs2500 bypass oil filter, pyro and boost gauges

Welcome to the org and Im pretty sure you can just spray the engine just cover your filter and let it run afterwards with the hood down. But someone will be along shortly to confirm or deny.

there are a few degreasers out there, i have tried the citrus kinds and they are ok. dont run the engine while cleaning it, and cover up anything you want to keep dry. i have found it best in the past to steam clean it, or use really hot water to rinse and help remove any grease or oil. by the way, welcome to the .ORG, we hope to see ya around quite a bit more!!!

Welcome to the ORG.!

I like Gunk engine brite. It cleans well, and will not corrode the aluminum accessories like greased lightning or purple power.
