Sounds great but for the average user $2,000.00? Just sayin!

Yea it is pricy but there are cheaper units available that do a reasonable job. My wife says the difference between men and boys is the price of thier toys. She doesn't even ask the price anymore when I come home with a new gizmo.

Yea I've heard "the price of their toys" many times also, but with the issue of cleaning the rear radiator, after soaking it with a grease cutter, use a hose attached to the Brick and Stick water heater, it works great. If no access to a large volume of hot water the steam cleaner sounds like a great idea. Just my 2 cents worth.

Then I crank the engine and let it blow. If I see bubbles, I rinse again until I don't see any. I do this annually and sometimes it takes two or three applications before I don't see crud falling on the concrete pad. I have a rear radiator and it really catches road grime.

Greese monkeys in the bedroom. That aint right

No kidding! Makes me feel even better about the $120 I invested in my Karcher pressure washer.

I'll just pay the toll and have it removed and cleaned. I just had the slobber tube fixed so the radiator shouldn't get any worse.
