Icon5 engine bay detailing

How do you guys keep your engines clean? does anyone pressure wash? I've heard good and bad things about it and wanted to know what you guys think about it.

Re: engine bay detailing

If your bay is real dirty pressure wash is fine. However all those connectors in there are not weather proof. So it's best to protect them from water.

Simple Green is a pretty good degreaser. Some folks give it a good spray down with wd40/pb blaster etc.

Me personally, I went after mine with a few old tooth brushes, Simple Green, paper towels, various brushes and a garden hose used sparingly.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: engine bay detailing

professionally done is degreaser entire bay, rub in with a old mit some dish soap and water,turn engine on, hose down with nothing covered, just dont fill your intake up with water....

i worked as a detailer at a busy collision shop, and a prepper/ secondary painter, and helped detail at another shop. 1yr and a half of washing bays with nothing covered and nothing went wrong. did it that way at both collision shops ive worked at.
