"I've used this product for a while now but only mainly on light dirt/ grease around the engine bay. However i'm conducting an engine-out re-build on my mk2 Golf. Taking the sub-frame off I could see it was covered in more than two decades of grease and grime. This stuff battled through like I wouldn't believe.
The only fly in the ointment as I can tell is the pump action on the bottle isn't really strong enough for repeated use but that's as maybe.
Good value, good product and recommended

Pros: fast acting, paint friendly, does what it says & well!
"I normally use a different product that you need to order on-line....however being out of this & needing to finish a job quickly I went with Autoglym Vinyl & Rubber Care and Autoglym engine cleaner. First I degreased the engine bay using the Autoglym cleaner & then used Vinyl & rubber care to dress her....wow great finish & one clean looking engine bay. Then based on these results I used around my petrol cap area & believe it or not around some very greasy locks on the car....performed exactly as it was supposed to. I would definitely use again!"

Pros: cuts through grease and dirt quickly, easy to use
Cons: price - try and get on a 3 for 2
"EXCELLENT PRODUCT!
Cuts through grease, dirt and pretty much anything that'll stick to the inside of your car. Great for cleaning the engine bay or underside of the car. However, this is not a substitute for cleaning the paintwork of your car. Use different products ... excellent value for money, one of the best Autoglym products out there.
Comes in a huge bottle, so be prepared to store it somewhere.
See my other review of the Autoglym products. I've tried and tested them all."

"Excellent product, used to clean a very oily engine so as i could find a troublesome oil leak. Worked wonders.
Only one minor niggle though, it could do with a better trigger action, other than that, very pleased."

Pros: great price, fanatastic power, easy to use
"this stff is truely awesome great cleaning power and safe to use on body work.
I have a golf wih 110,000 miles on the clock I don't think the engine has ever been cleaned but after a few squirts of this and then brushing and washing off, the engine looks brand new.
Complement ths with the vinyl and rubber care and you get a great finish"
