If you haven't take your inner fenders out, makes it easier to get at the rear.

Yeah noticed that towards the middle of the job. Pulled both of them out to get some better access.

The ultrasonic cleaner I ordered arrived. I figured I would toss in some fuel lines and see what happens. This thing is cool immediately things started to fizz out the dirt:


Its much cleaner (this about 12 mins of cleaning, LEFT= Cleaned)


I will probably give them a CLR bath anyways it didnt take off everything but it got most of it off.

Sorry should have clarified, the one on the left is cleaned the one on the right is not.

I did not find any coolant leak anywhere else when I pulled the covers off.. Nor did I see drippings around the head gasket. Is there anywhere I should focus on looking besides those places?

There is an eng coolant cover plate above the starter that is known to leak enough that a few shops on this site make o ringed cover plates for them and I am not saying you cant just put on a new gasket ! But I chose to put the plate on for no good reason , its the nicest looking thing on my eng and you cant even see it . LOL !

DO NOT put clr in the ultra sonic . Not sure what happens but all the coating gets eaten away. The moment you remove it from the water it has flash-rust .

***edit*** don't put too much. Which it sounds like I did. its suggested later on to do a capful.


I ended up ordering another set of injectors lines rather than risking it with these. I only clr'd 1/2 of the lines so im guessing the other half is fine, but ordered a whole new set anyways.

How much did you use? You only need like a cap full of CLR or lime away in an ultrasonic cleaner to be effective

When I cleaned mine i pulled them out of the cleaner and directly into a sink of clean rinsing water. Then I had the oven preheating to about 250* or so and put them in. Zero rust.

When I used to use an ultrasonic cleaner at a previous job I did find if the concentration was too strong then the parts would develop small or micro pits that would quickly rust. For parts that where already pitted I would have to go directly to the rinse water with zero delay.

I had a particularly difficult time with a cast iron pump housing. I had to have a running garden hose running water over it while I pulled it out otherwise it rusted again. Had to do it several times to get it right. Then quickly painted
