FML so the other day I was freakin using degreaser to clean the engine. And guess what the hell happened? The damn degreaser was burning in the engine bay! I smelled something burning so I popped the hood and viola! freakin rust/ corrosion everywhere! Dammit!
So I had to break down and I covered up the alternator best I could along with the intake, fuse box, battery and washed the engine bay SOFTLY with a hose. Then I went on to scrub and scrub and scrub to get whatever degreaser was left off of the engine. The I went back and put a LIGHT coat of WD40 and the areas that still contained a little bit of corrosion to stop it from spreading. Spent a little bit cleaning everything else up and did the best I could to get all the degreaser off. You can kinda see where it was rusted on the heat cover to the header of the exhaust (I think thats what it's called lol).
Here are some photos AFTER I finished cleaning everything. The engine looks super clean in the photo but trust me there is a LOT of dirt and crap aroud the bay that I wanna clean. Little by little I guess:
