I'd jack it up and put her on stands. Then pull the wheels/tires to clean in that area. All you should need is water, simple green and brushes to scrub on stuff.

Yep, blew the headgasket on my truck and sprayed oil all over the front of the motor, worked pretty well...

Took ALOT of scrubbing, rinse, repeat...

Degreaser might work just as well, but this is a bit cheaper and does not damage anything.

Yeah it does smell good. Plus it washes off easily and stuff seems fairly shiney after its use. A little touch up stuff for black plastic/whatever and done. Goes good with some ice and vodka too.
