Question how to clean NoToil spill off my engine ?

Hi,

as the title says.

Got a little over with my last air filter cleaning and some extra notoil spilled from airbox onto my engine. How would you clean the darn sticky mess? I sent question to folks at notoil.com with no reply, although they do list air box cleaner on their site.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Try a spray of WD40, let it 'sit' then wipe off.

SHOULD work....

Isn't it a little amusing that it takes so much work to remove No Toil? Or is that Not Oil? No Toil is a lot funnier, correct or not.

Along a similar line, ever wonder why the Chevy Nova never sold well in Spanish-speaking countries? No va translates as "it doesn't go." A brilliant General Motors marketing effort!

Goop worked well on the mess of chain wax I had and didn't hurt the finish at all.

Or was that look THEN leap?

In french, a Buick Lacrosse, which is sold on my part of Canada and happens to be mostly french speaking, means to do a hand job ...
