Use a product called slam. I used to do auto detailing and we used it and charged customers $50 for an engine shampoo. Get the motor soaked with water first. Apply slam to entire engine. let sit for 2 minutes then rinse off. Do not apply this product to a dry engine bay. It is the best cleaner i have ever seen in my life.

Thanks for the info...I just tried Simple Green and that worked pretty well on the areas with grease....I did use water in a limited way to wash the Simple Green away. Lot's of rags and toothbrushes too!

I guess it will just take alot of elbow grease!?

We would suggest not using water if possible. Using compressed air you may be able to dislodge larger debris and then by hand clean with towels, rags, and cleaning brushes with a mild non streaking solvent.
