Looking for kerosene

Not sure if you're interested, but you can also go to your local car dealer to have the engine steam cleaned - it's somewhat cleaner than spraying degreaser on the engine and letting the runoff spill into the sewers (although I'm guessing the car dealers do this in China).

It's kind of a good practice - have the engine steam cleaned with every oil change or at least once a year - helps somewhat reduce the risk of engine fires if your vehicle is a leaky thing.

Why would you want to degrease your engine? The engine oil is cleaning, cooling, sealing and lubricating your engine.

Unless you are talking about an RC model engine, you will lose a few thousand miles of engine milage.

You are playing with the health of all moving engine parts and the systems connected to the engine oil cycle.
The standard oil change will be enough to have a healthy engine. If you want to do your engine any good, get a premium 1year protection engine oil and change it twice annually, especially if you only drive short distances.

And the last thing you should put in your engine are food items.

If you still can't resist then buy a carburator cleaner or rinse, but you have to air blow the engine with a compressor and lubricate the engine manually before starting the engine. That is especially important if you have a newerHD engine.
