Oven Cleaner? No, No, No!

Don't use oven cleaner! I am speaking from experience. Someone suggested this to me once and it seemed to be an inexpensive good idea at the time. Read the side of the can about use on aluminum. What a mess! Corroded aluminum and rust on the cadmium plated components. I took months to clean up to just reasonable. If you want an inexpensive cleaner, use biodiesel.

I repeat, do not use oven cleaner!

It is better to use a little more elbow grease. Water on a running hot engine should not cause damage. Water on a stopped hot engine is not a good idea due to too much thermal shock.
