"Rust-Steamed" Engine

My truck is not yet roadworthy. I had the recent misfortune of having a radiator leak spew steaming hot rust-water all over the entire engine area.

Now nothing seems to work getting that rust residue off. Ive tried engine degreaser and other tough cleansers to no avail. I dont have the luxury of a steam cleaning machine. There are so many nooks and crannies that using a scrub, wire or toothbrush is too taxing. Any other suggestions?

Have you tried a product such as CLR or Limeaway?


How about a pressure washer along with what Tester recomended
