I had to replace my passenger side valve cover gasket today. After I got the valve cover off, I tried to clean all the grease off the outside, and the brown oil buildup off the inside. I tried Carb Cleaner and then Brake Cleaner, and each one was just burning my nose with the fumes. Neither one did much as far as cleaning the grease buildup off. Then I tried some Adam's APC. As soon as I sprayed it on, the grease started literally melting off!! This stuff will clean EVERYTHING I have tried it on so far. :D I didn't get any before pics (because I didn't plan on making this thread when I began cleaning it). But I was so pleased with how good it worked, I just had to share my experience with it. Here is the end results of some APC, a small brush, then I sprayed it off with a water hose. :thumbs:

Actually, I did get one before shot, while it was still on the truck, right after I got the ign coils off.

Looks really good Scott, APC is some really good stuff. I refer to it as 409 on steroids when people ask how well it works.

Another great spot is on white letters on tires, spray it on and let it sit for a minute. Use an old cheap microfiber and wipe the letters perfectly clean. For me it seemed to work better on the letters with a microfiber cloth than using a brush.

Another great use for APC is removing wax residue from Plastic parts.

When I PC's the sons CRV, I got Maguires on his Plastic 14y/o grill..nothing I tried to remove it with worked, until I gave the APC a try..took it right off.
