    We do not at this time.

    Our M39 Heavy Duty Vinyl Cleaner could be used under the engine compartment to clean most any colored plastic, rubber, or vinyl surface, but this product is not for cleaning actual metal.

    D114 was a great product for doing wipe downs in engine bays....

    Nick would D115 or ultimate waterless wash work more effectively than M39?

    Absolutely agree & we thank you for the feedback. To OP if you can find a gallon of our no longer produced D114 Rinse Free X-Press Wash, it does work well for a rinse-less option for in the engine compartment.

    Our Pro Marketing is fully aware this product is missed by many, but I will document feedback internally. We will just have to wait & see if they come out with an alternative solution.

    Guz, good point, any of our Quik Detailer sprays or Waterless Sprays, like D115 or G3626 Ultimate Waterless Wash & Wax could technically be used for light cleaning under the hood. It would be good to keep in mind of course that these products are not applied in the same manner or provide nearly as much cleaning ability as an actual de-greaser like our D108 Super De-greaser. As far as the cleaning ability, any of our Quik Detailer sprays will provide very light cleaning for mainly dust & any other light contaminants. D115 or Ultimate Waterless Wash & Wax in general will have a moderate amount of cleaning ability, but probably are not going to be effective at removing grease. M39 Heavy Duty Vinyl Cleaner will provide much more cleaning ability to rubber, vinyl, or colored plastic components compared to D115 or Ultimate Waterless Wash & Wax.

    I know this isn't related to a product specifically, but on engines that aren't too bad, I have used my steamer to clean them, then used Hyper Dressing to finish it off. But on very dirty engines, have only used water and degreaser.
