Anti Freeze works like magic, especially when you put it in an old crock pot and heat it up. Soak parts in overnight and you will be amazed at the results.

Don't know if you ever used it to clean gunked up engine parts like cylinder heads and such but it does work for that and works quite well, thanks for putting me onto it I have been using the stuff ever since you did!

Yep, found that out a long time ago when I used it to clean my dirty Kawasaki 900. It took me a lot of elbow grease to get rid of that gray looking scum from the oven cleaner.

One thing you have to be careful with on antifreeze is animals loves this stuff. Something about the smell attracts them. A friend of mine had some antifreeze left in a pan after draining his system. His dog ended up dying from licking it. According to the vet, once they ingest it (and it only takes a small amount), antifreeze will shut their kidney's down real fast. Just my two cents. If you have pets around, make sure the antifreeze is not accessible to your pets. BTW- 302- thats a great idea with the crock pot!

That's definitely worth mentioning and even though it is fairly well known some people don't know and of those that do most don't realize just how little it takes to kill your pet, the Vet told me that they can lick enough off their paws after walking in it to kill them! Anytime AF is spilled it should be hosed down to dilute it and/or keep it from puddling up because they WILL find it if it is left out where they can smell it. The same goes for cats, they will climb up into the engine compartment and lick it off of hoses or other areas where it has been spilled. Also I am not at all sure why but for human exposure we were told once at a mine safety meeting that AF is far more toxic to women than to men, anyone else heard that?
