    I actually just pressure sprayed mine at the car wash. It came right off. Just go to the carwash, switch on the soap, wash the whole car until the soap gets hot. Then you can spray your engine bay with HOT water and not have to worry about cracking anything because of the temperature shock.

    Neutralize the acid with baking soda, and wash off with a hose or pressure washer.

    Well if you haven't tried washing it off you should do that first. I got my car used and there was battery acid on there from who knows when. It looked ancient. The pressure hose took it right off. No sense in doing more work than needed, right?

    If the acid is old, the baking soda wont do any good.
