Default Cleaning with coca cola

Okay, so what really is the end result if using cola to clean off rust etc? I mean in the long run would one find it actually damages the car?

I dunno, but I saw the video and thought well if it worked for him... lol

Anybody tried it?

I've used Coke to clean battery cables once or twice, but nothing else.

I had coke in cans sitting in the cupboard for about a year and it ate through the cans and leaked. I called COKE and they said shelf life was 6 or 9 months and sent me a few coupons for free 6 packs....

Talking Re: Cleaning with coca cola

I clean out "my system" with at least one Coke a day!
(high test)

My guess is that it is a mild acid - carbonic- so it will do the job.
Albeit slow, compared to some others like Muriatic acid that you can readily buy.
