    As the title states, 'How clean is your engine?'
    I don't like working on dirty engines, but struggle with time to keep them as clean as I would like.

    Post up some pictures of how clean, or dirty your engine is.
    To get things started, here are three of mine.

    My CN1 just before I traded her in.

    My GG6 (Only had a quick clean after I bought her)

    TY @andy83
    The Jazz really needs a good clean, but at least the areas that need regular checking are okay.
    It's on the list, but so are a thousand other things! :Laughing:

    I really need to give mine a good going over, it's pretty minging compared to those above. For the most part though it's just dust, not a whole lot of stubborn dirt, other than around the dipstick. (K20)

    Intake manifold and tensioner bracket let it down somewhat, but hopefully a new motor will be going in before too long...
