Cleaning Your Vehicle’s Engine
There are a lot of people who spend tons of time and energy cleaning the bodies of their vehicles, but they don’t devote as much of that attention to cleaning the parts that are hidden from plain sight, mainly, the engine bay. As a result, dirt, grime, oil, and more can coat the most important part of your vehicle, which could hinder your car’s performance.
Pressure washing the engine bay of your vehicle on an as-needed basis is an important part of car maintenance.
Here are a few tips for cleaning your vehicle’s engine:
best time to wash
Protect Electrical Work
Soften up Grime
Use Low Pressure
Ensure The Engine is Dry
Once you’re done spraying all the detergent away, your engine should be clean. Use either a microfiber cloth or old rags to dry it off. This will give you the chance to wipe away any grime you might have missed with the pressure washer. Compressed air is recommended by most mechanics in this final step; completely drying your engine is absolutely crucial.
We want to stress how important it is to consult your car’s instruction manual prior to doing any type of engine cleaning. There may be a specific set of instructions that your maker recommends. Always follow these instructions first and foremost.
