Hi guys. My first time around (first post). I wonder if it would be advisable to cover the 'air flow meter' (whatever its name is), I also cover few other electrical connections (just wrap sections of plastic supermarket bags). Agree on covering the alternator definitely. One thing I do is apply the air blower to wipe off all the excess of water. I finally apply 6-56 CR (specially on the electrical contacts). Best

Gunk safe on all engine parts

Any auto part store sells them.
Does Gunk cause any discoloration to the plastic parts or do you just use it on the engine block?

Did he take anything apart or was he just careful?

he has thorough, i suggest you PM him if your really curious. Even my 2007 with all its frame rust and years of built up dirt and grime can be brought back to that quality if i were to spend enough time on it.
