Oxidation all over my engine..

I have oxidation on my engine. Anyone else have this issue? What do you guys recommend I use to get it off? Iíve tried chrome polish on the blower but it doesnít take it all off. What do you guys think?

Weird issue I don’t get that up this way for some reason. On the aluminum use a brass brush and then keep it shined up after and it will stay gone the blower and pipe your going to need some good old elbow grease.

Weird thing is it got worse when I moved farther from the ocean. Iíll try the brass brush. Anything I should spray on the aluminum to keep it from doing it again? The blower I figured it will take allot of elbow grease.

All my aluminum bits look like that, especially the 10-15 year old stock stuff. It can be shined up again but something like the alternator cage would be way more work then it’s really worth

Yea man that’s normal for a everyday dd, or a truck that just sits. I remember seeing Stu’s engine bay an all that stuff was polished like the **** hadn’t left the showroom since 03. But realistically for me daily driving it(up til June) am working across the street from the beach it was about impossible for me to keep it like that.

The 05 engine that I swapped into the 03 had a bunch of oxidation on it. I just used a stainless steel wire brush to clean off most of the oxidation on it. Didn't have any carb cleaner to see it it worked any better?

Do you live in an area where they use calcium on the roads to help de-ice it?
