I heard tire foams and everything, actually mess up cars, if this is guaranteed to work, no check engine lights will come on.. I'm down

Default Re: Engine Detail

This is kind of a dumb/repeat question...but is it safe to put that stuff on the engine? I've always wanted to do that but when I read the Armor All bottle it says its extremely flamable and I don't want to be driving down the road and have my engine fail or catch on fire.

Armor All is crap. Use something decent like Meguiars or Mothers!

That looks great, I have the degreaser but never would have thought to use the tire foam on it, which I have an ample supply handy. Looks like I know how I'm going to blow Monday afternoon
