Anything to beaware of?
I'm getting back on the truck, I'll check back in a few hours.
Thanks in advance.
I'm in the middle of my oil cooler now. ought a can of Gunk Engine cleaner and followed directions on the can. I wasn't completely satisfied so I took the intake to my local car wash bay and used the engine cleaner feature with the high pressure warm rinse. Came out pretty good. I did however remove the air temp sensor, you don't want cleaners and solvents getting inside these sensors!
When I got home I hit it again with Castrol Superclean a brass brush and I am happy with the extended effort I put in. Have fun...
