What Spray Product for Motor Surface Corrosion?

Used car recently bought apparently had the engine and area around it hosed down with harsh chemicals. Silver parts of motor show white specks of corrosion. I'd like to spray those areas with something other than oil. Suggestions?
aluminum oxide, super hard used in the coating of wood flooring finish to make it more durable. A die grinder or muratic acid will take it off if you really want to. ;-)
Use one of these and follow directions to the letter.

Corrosion X will work wonders for aluminum. They sell a product called Max Wax that is nearly ideal for engines. I spray it on a microfiber and wipe on a very thin coating.
