Do not start the truck, if you have a pressure washer then, park the truck the night before where your going to wash it. Then in the morning when the engine is cold, go out there and wash it with the pressure washer.

Spraying a hot engine with cold water can cause damage to the cylinder heads.

I use degreaser on mine as well. You can get the Super Tech brand from WalMart for about $2 a can and 1 can should be all you need. It foams up when you spray it so just let it sit and soak in then wash it off with a pressure washer or at the car wash.

303 Its somewhat of a miracle product. It does everything from your dash to your wipers to your engine. My boss sprays it all over his engine, runs it through a ride through car wash and the engine looks detailed. Good **** IMO
