ted tcb Posted March 24, 2005 Report Share Posted March 24, 2005 It's 40f up north, so time to pressure wash away the grime of this past winter. For years, I've disregarded the sage advice to not spray your engine, just a light rinse with Simple Green. So, I foamed up the engine bay and went to town, just like in the past. As luck would have it, I must have hit a sensitive area around the plugs ... when the car started up from dead cold that night, she burped and farted like a Lexus ( couldn't resist ). I ran some 93 octane gas with gas line antifreeze for 30 minutes, did some 2nd gear acceleration and engine breaking, and all is well 2 days later .... purrs like an STS should. Just a warning to cover up the plugs and wires when pressure washing .... it felt like the car was firing on only 7 cylinders. 1989 FWD Fleetwood, Silver 1995 STS Crimson Pearl on Black leather 1997 STS Diamond White 1999 STS Crimson Pearl 2001 STS Silver 2003 STS, Crimson Pearl Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
