This is no big deal, it's a simple fix.
I agree with using degreaser but never power wash your motor for any reason.. The pressure will break gaskets and seals..

I agree, maybe power washing is not the right word, English is not my first language you see... I use my power washer but at a low setting, low pressure, just a spray but not enough to cause any damage.

Yeah I just used my hose... Did the trick. But the jeep sat this weekend so I can't notice any leaks since I degreased it but I guess we will wait and see! I need to get a power washer too.. They are convenient.
Thanks guys, still waiting!
