    I know there are folks who can jump into a pit of gease head first and come out with a clean white shirt on but them type of folks are just odd ;)

    No one taste fluids on purpose, but if you really work on cars, its gonna happen.

    Worst fluid to taste on accident, old rear end lube.
    Oh you thought it just smelled bad...........

    Though some of use are just dirty mechanics in the way we don't even think about what we have on, we just climb in under or around the car without a thought. I purposly can't wear nice clother or even white as soon as I do, Ill see something and crawl under the car not even thinking about what I have on.

    Picked up a $25 patch work leather biker jacket just for that.
    So I don't ruin my good leather jacket for the bike being my typical self.
    Very nice fit, I like the texture of the different pieces. Some rough, some baby smooth. Only $25, how can ya go wrong.

    just changing the oil a bit more frequently will clean the engine pretty well (I did a couple oil changes on my '79 monte under 2000 miles when the oil was like that, and after teh second one it was clean)

    no dont do that!!!.
    my dad back in the day (early 80's when he worked on a farm) used to run dieasl fuel right in the crank case in those old bobcats and piggy back forklifts on the sod trucks. it was ok back then cause dieasl had the extra sulpher in it and was able to keep the bearings and seal held together but today you can't do that.
    just run intake clean through her and thats about as best it gets. (we have an actuall industrial cleaner style in our shop when we run the emissions testing it changes the numbers BIG TIME. works well. snap-on has them and sells them.)

    I've had some pretty strange looks when someone tells me there is something leaking out of their car
    and I ask them what it tastes like.
    Reminds me of the Cheech and Chong skit about the dog crap lol

    people don't intentionaly drink the fluids, not me at least. some of you might.. haha. but usually happens when ur siphoning, or you get done working, and have a snack w/ out washing your hands prior to eating.

    I 've worked as a boat mechanic for years and anytime we had a submarine(sunken boat) I would suck out the oil and replace filter and add half fuel oil and half motor oil and warm up engine. It would clean all the leftover water out of the engine. Then replace filter and fresh oil again. I've probably done this about 20 times on diffent chevy's with no problem whatsoever.

    For the record, Automatic Transmission Fluid contains NO DETERGENTS.
