Default This is good Stuff!!!

Here is a teaser I found this on another board:
A friend who does honda stuff told me i should clean my engine bay sometimes, that itll keep it looking nice. So i decided to tackle it this morning. I went out to autozone and got a jug of simple green degreaser put it in a spray bottle. He told me to get it on EVERYTHING to completely cover anything that might be dirty with it. So i did, i got all over the turbo, the block, sides of the engine bay and i even figured id clean the pistons off too so i pulled my spark plugs and sprayed it down into each cylinder, i figure if they got any carbon on them this should take care of it.

I left it for about 30 minutes to let it soak, break everything down. came back and got a pressure washer and hosed it all off. Once all the simple green was done i put the spark plugs back in and reconnected the wires and everything but now the car wont start. First time i tried it made this awful awful knocking noise now it wont even turn over. Could i have mest up the electronics with the water? he didn't tell me to cover anything and he wont be back in town for a week. Any help is appreciated.

HAHAHA,
Hunter

$hit everyone knows that Simple Green has to much octane to spray inside the motor. He is lucky it did not grenade when he tried to start it. He should have used Comet or Soft scrub in the cylinders. Would have honed cylinder walls and corrected valve seats at the same time. Some people !

when you get your hondah running leave the windows down when you race.. it creates more drag then the motor will make more torque and you will pick up .10 in the 1/4

The funny thing is that people are really that dumb to. This one kid dumped sand in his intake to get this smooth out the bumps and impurities from the casting. He could not figure out how his motor blew up.

I think you just have to run special plugs in order to get the simple green to burn, no big deal.

Sand in the intake? Everyone who's anyone knows that you just need to put some of that orange hand cleaner in there... the stuff with the pummice in it. Even comes in handy pump containers to make it easier. Makes the exhaust smell like Floriduh too!!!
