I would ask around at local shops in your area. Depending on your living situation it may be best to have it done somewhere besides your home. The places that will steam clean an engine compartment and underside are becoming few and far between because its not easy dealing with all that gunk with new regulations and stuff. But if you do find one, they'll probably help you out for less than $100.

Good luck.
