A mechanic that works with me at the dealership says that transmission fluid also works as an engine cleaner. Apparently it just eats up the carbon deposits, but it burns super thick white smoke so you can't do it indoors. Anyway, I was able to find my bag of spare parts, which thankfully contained the magical key to unlock to evil Kona rack of wind resistance. With a little extra body help, I was able to remove it safely without causing any more damage to my car. Now I just need to find a place to store it. I will eventually find or make time to get an oil change, and they will do a full inspection when they do it to let me know what I need to replace or repair.
