Under the Hood Appearance problems

I purchase a 2007 Mustang almost a year ago, when I was overseas. When I came home, I checked under the hood and their was this stuff that was cooked on (white color). It looked like a liquid leaked or something... I dunno. I asked a few people and they told me antifreeze, armor all, and something else. I am just seeing what people think it is and how I should go about to fix this problem. I attached 6 photos, and thanks again

Re: Under the Hood Appearance problems

Yah that stuff looks pretty nasty. For the plastic ribbed wire coil covers near the rear of the engine bay, I'd probably just replace them. It'd be easier than trying to clean them. For the rubber, harder lines similar to fuel line, I'd try some armor all or degreaser, something strong, but not overly powerful that will cause it to deteriorate later on.

I've seen this alot of vehicles bought from dealerships. I think it has something to do with the way they prepare the vehicles in house.

About the most efficient way I have found to remove it to to use a concentrated steam to remove the traces and marks. Would probably recommend having a professional detail service do the work as you can definitely mess up things in the engine compartment if not done correctly.

That's kinda ****ty. Dealerships cause this prepping the car when they receive it? Does it start to show while the cars are still there. I'd be slightly concerned if I saw that when looking at the car.

Re: Under the Hood Appearance problems

Yea, happens all the time. Spend some time cleaning it. It's not just your car or just a mustang. Happens everywhere. Unless of course you have 20lbs of plastic engine dressup that hides all the dirty stuff...aka Nissan/Mercedes/BMW/etc.
