you should fix the problem first... degreasing will only get the gunk off temporarily--it's gonna come back.

Don't use Engine Brite or any other engine degreaser on your car. It will discolor aluminum components and is very hard on the paint and rubber in your engine bay. Go to the grocery store and buy Simple Green. You can also get it at the autoparts store. It works wonders. Just spray like crazy, let it sit for 10 minutes and then hose down.
