Hi Nell - I wasn't trying to be pessimistic - I was giving you what I thought was good advice after all white spirit is relatively cheap. About 3-4 weeks ago there was guy who posted on this forum and after getting his engine bay cleaned ended up with his car off the road for a week and a bill of £2-300 for repairs. I have been a mechanic for over 40 years and have wide experience of working with cars, trucks and marine engines and I am prepared to give my time and advice for free. In all honesty I was giving what I believe was good advice in what I think was a balanced view.
