How To Remove Rust on Metal Car Part Safely & Quickly


Hi I’m Rick, I am at the Chrysler show here at Carlisle, and uh….Metal Rescue is going to see if it can rescue my water pump housing, in about 6 to 9 hours and we’ll see what they can do
with it. (Why don’t you hold this way, we’ll get how bad this is. How bad is that rust?) Pretty heavy pretty heavy it’s not it’s
not quick stuff that can just rub off a little scotch brite and (it’s gonna take
a while) all the nooks and crannies and it’s something I wouldn’t want to sand
blast and end up leaving a little sand behind it. (ok) I think we will see what you can do. (we’re gonna put it here here’s a metal rescue, we’re going to do a soak
so got some other parts soaking we’re gonna make room for this water pump housing
we’re going to put in the bath give it a little Metal Rescue bath and
we’ll check back with Rick probably about six hours our guess.) sounds good (alright) Hi I’m Krista here with the Metal Rescue crew, We got this water pump housing about an hour ago now you can see we’re making tremendous
progress with it. I’m going to lift it out show what’s going on. You can see how cloudy this water is getting looking great. I’m going to put it back in here For another couple of hours. (We’re gonna check back with that housing)
Alright and how many hours it has it been? (Two hours) Two hours? When can I see it? (Now, you can go look at it right now) Where am I looking? In the bin? Alot of black water, is that my rust? My hands can go right in there? (Absolutely) Whoa, Holy Shh. Holy mackerel! Wow!!! Way better than sandblasting, Excellent!! Excellent!!
Good time to look for cracks now. (So it’s only been two hours, there’s a little bit of stuff there)
It’s only been two hours and it’s like that? No Shh, kidding i need to bring over my
friends. I wish I would have seen this before. Is it okay to bring over a few guys to check this out? (Absolutely) Maybe I’ll sell them some stuff. (There you go) (We got your video before, that’s why I do it, because people don’t believe it until they see it) So can i put it back in here and finish her off? (Yep) Awesome! And that’s it, I can just wipe my hands off? (Absolutely) No kidding? Excellent! Looking great! Looking great.
(Metal Rescue does it again!) Go back and paint it right now. I think it’s awesome! (That looks really good) How ya doing? Here you go, with her a ssistance, I’m wowed! I really am. Thank you! I saw it on TV like with Billy Mays selling this, I wouldn’t believe it. ( You don’t think I’m as good as Billy Mays?) I could put that out and sell that for more money than before. Very Happy!

Visit our Metal Rescue Rust Remover Bath Facebook Fan Page, we have posted a picture of a motorcycle being dipped in Metal Rescue. How rusty is your bike?

  • Hey 303miles, Metal Rescue Rust Remover Bath has to be in continuous contact with the rusty part. With this said, soaking is the best way to use Metal Rescue to ensure that the rusty part gets de-rusted. Some people have used other methods on parts that are too big too to soak. Just keep in mind that Metal Rescue has to be in constant contact with the rusty part. People has used a water pump or hose to apply it using a sort of catch basin to recycle the solution. Did I answer you question?

  • Metal Rescue™ is a water-based rust remover designed for iron & steel. To work, Metal Rescue™ must remain in direct contact with the metal you are working to de-rust. The only obstacle to removing rust from the car doors, panels & trunks you referenced is keeping Metal Rescue™ in contact with the rusted areas. Try applying a smooth, absorbent material soaked in Metal Rescue™ to the rusted area – cover with plastic wrap to minimize evaporation. Keep the area wet to work properly. Good Luck!

  • im looking for a way to derust engine cooling system but as you gertting there is impossible ……can this be used to flush the rust out of a cooling system ? will it work on aluminum or atleast not harm it,,,,cause you know how bad acid based rust remover on the aluminum, rubber parts….

  • In order for Metal Rescue™ to work it must remain in direct contact with the metal you are working to de-rust. When sprayed on a surface, Metal Rescue™ will dry before de-rusting can be completed. However, Metal Rescue™ is effective in removing rust if continuously sprayed onto the surface until the rust has been dissolved. Typical operations are continuous spray washers with the Metal Rescue™ fluid being re-circulated. The best method for using Metal Rescue™ is a bath or soak.

  • Metal Rescue™ is designed for iron/steel. To use on your engine cooling system, follow these simple steps: drain coolant; flush the cooling system; add Metal Rescue™ (approx 2 gallons for cars & 4 gallons for trucks); turn car/truck on & allow engine to run long enough to warm or elevate the temperature of the Metal Rescue™** and repeat throughout the process; allow Metal Rescue™ to set in the cooling system for approximately 6-12 hours (depending on severity of rust); remove Metal Rescue™.

  • Velocity, the answer to your questions are yes and yes. Metal Rescue is safe on everything except rust, and by using it with an ultrasonic bath it will speed up the rust removal process. Great question! Let us know how it works out for you! ? Thanks for the question.

  • I'm buying a 1970 Plymouth barracuda and the car has surface rust covering the car. Can I just pour the remover on the car and scrub the rust away?

  • A smooth, absorbent material can be soaked with Metal Rescue™ and applied to the rusted area (the texture of the material is key – do not use a material with a pattern or texture as it could be transferred to the item you are trying to de-rust)). The area will need to be covered with plastic film to prevent evaporation and drying. When the surface is de-rusted, rinse with water and use a brush or sponge if necessary. Let us know if you have any other questions, or visit our FAQ's on our website

  • I collect old oil tin cans, some of witch are very rusty. Can this product be use on them without damaging the litho on them?

  • Hello Rui,

    Yes, Metal Rescue is safe on everything except rust. That being said, some old paints contain iron oxide (rust) which Metal Rescue will remove. We suggest soaking a small area first to see if your paint contains any iron oxide. Good luck, please let us know if you have any other questions.

  • No it does not remove black oxide, in fact when items are left in Metal Rescue™ too long it causes black oxide to form. The black oxide is a corrosion inhibiting film that is a more stable state of oxidized iron. It is not detrimental to the metal surface and only cosmetic in nature. Typically the black oxide that forms due to Metal Rescue™ can be removed by simply by rinsing in mild detergent or wiping with a cloth. Metal Rescue will remove other oxides such as bluing and and white rust.

  • Hey I'm rebuilding an old Yamaha engine, it's full of rust and caked on grease, will metal rescue remove both the grime and rust or only the rust? Also is it fine if I leave the rubber hoses on or should I remove them?

  • Hi christian ibarra, to answer you question about your Yamaha engine. Metal Rescue will only remove rust. It doesn't contain acids to penetrate and remove grease and grime. You can use a power washer to clean off the engine. Then Metal Rescue will have no problem removing the rust. Also, Metal Rescue is safe on rubber, paint, chrome, gaskets, aluminum, so your rubber hoses will not be harmed. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

  • I wish I could have listened to this because the closed captioning was gibberish. Most of the words were in english, but some words were in other languages. I would guess they're using voice recognition software or the person doing the captions desn't understand the person speaking.

We are very happy to hear that you had such a good experience with Metal Rescue Rust Remover Bath! Please let us know if you ever have any questions about our products. [email protected]

  • I bought a car that has moderate rusting on the lower part of the engine. Any suggestions for removing rust from there?

  • Just wondering if this can be used with a pressure washer and sprayed? or it's best used only with submersion like in the video?

  • Do you have a product that will remove rust from metal (jeep axle knuckles for example) with just a spray on application, without soaking? I have some isolated rust spots that I'd like to get rid of, but they're not bad enough to warrant removing/disassembling and soaking. Thanks in advance!

  • I have an old Farmall cub totally seized can I put it in the cylinder I have heard if left on metal too long it can leave black stain so can I soak cylinders with this product

  • I have two questions:

    1. Does it make the material any weaker after the rust is gone? I'm wondering if it's actually better for the metal or if it's just cosmetic.

    2. Does it protect the metal against future rust? I'm looking to make the material permanently rust proof or at least maybe apply something every couple of years. Do you happen to have a product that does that?

  • This looks good, but the downside is it converts most of the rust to black. and even the good parts of unrusted metal
