rectangular box, i think it is on the drivers side rear of the engine (top) has all the spark plug wires coming out of it... it replaces a distributor cap

Ok so I'll cover those but what would be safe to clean the coil pack alternator and fuse box damp clothes or some friendly spray.

I wash it all, just don't "kill spray" stuff. Hold the wand about 2 feet from the engine and move around a lot.

I heard WD-40 stood for not only 'water-displacement' but also when they were coming up with the formula for the aerospace industry that it was the 40th try before they got the formula right. I believe I heard about that on the discovery channel.
