Canadian motoring website shared the many benefits of keeping a vehicle engine clean. “If you’re driving an older ride that has developed a few minor oil leaks over the years (but still keeps on ticking) getting that grime off can help save repair costs and breakdowns. There are a lot of rubber components under the hood such as vacuum and coolant hoses, drive belts, bushings and such that can have their lifespan greatly reduced by contact with oil or fuel.
