I've done this kind of thing using a air pressure spray paint gun filled with mineral spirits ar full power too when i didn't want to be spraying water on things afterwards. That would work similar to the brake clean rinse and it's cheaper and doesn't evaporate anywhere near as fast leaving the gook behind stuck somewhere else.

I don't lay under the car when doing this kind of stuff, I spray the solvent up from the sides and back while the back of the car is up on jack stands, then do the same with the garden hose while rinsing the emulsified no longer sticky gunked junk off.
It's the dirty splash back from the garden hose that gets on you so it's shower time afterwards.

Gunk or a generic copy of it works better on a warm motor like it says on the cans instructions.. works good on a cool motor or transmission too.
