Don’t spray water on to the engine bay even if the electrics are unplugged, it can cause problems depending on what engine you have.

It worked for you because your car has a diesel engine. I wouldn't recommend using water to clean a petrol one.

joe eoj (1 год назад)
Nice video. I would like to add that idealy after you finish rinsing with clear water you can blow all the electrical parts with compressed air if its available and then start the engine and let it idle for about 5-7 minutes with engine hood open to let all the water evaporate away from angine and electrical parts. Also this way you are 100% sure it will start next time you need to go somewhere and nothing went wrong with electricals and water.

You shouldn't have to cover anything electrical unless the car is a piece of shit with poor engineering. water gets splashed up onto the motor whenever you're driving in the rain or through puddles.

I did it to my BMW e46 n42b20 engine. It's all good. There is no electrical connection to cover. All covered with sealed rubber by BMW. Same as low pressure, adjusting the pressure washer. But i remember from my Dad, after wash engine, car need to run engine to dry. May be a 1hour drive. Otherwise, water struck in the engine and damage the starter motor and alternator. Yesterdays I clean my car engine for the 4th time. No problem at all. Run perfectly.

As a new car fan (no experience, replaced my brakes and changed my oil once) is there an easy way to see what's electronic and what's not?
HostileLemons (1 год назад)
GenderPranks While for the most part cleaning an engine bay is not practical. It can hovever help reduce surface corrosion from salt and other debris. It also makes it easier to find leaks in the engine. Finally, it helps when wanting to sell the car. A possible buyer is far more likely to buy a car with a clean shiny engine bay that looks loved rather than an engine bay with mud, dust, oil, leaves and small stones in it making it look horrible.
GenderPranks (1 год назад)
I would just advise him to not do this at all. This isn't something most people should do as it will usually be purely cosmetic and the risk vs. reward is not favorable.
Jack Spikey (2 года назад)
+Nickenator8 The stuff that has electrical cable running to/from it is electrical. If you can't tell what electrical cable looks like consult your user manual or leave it for a pro. Even then there may be some stuff you can't easily see so be very very very very very thorough and remember that pressure washers have quite a kick so that waterproofing needs to be on there like white on rice. especially with older cars because their seals/gaskets may be worn.

I have a shit ton more car related knowledge and experience than you do and I can diagnose a failed part and see exactly why it failed. In this case Ive seen fresh green corrosion inside of connectors that ruined parts after cleaning it with high pressure water. But dont listen to me, idiots like you make me money.

Kevin Afton I did this my BMW e46 n42b20 engine, i didn't disconnect battery because battery is in the trunk. It's work. No problem at all. I didn't even find any electrical plugs to cover up. All are covered with rubber by BMW.
Michael (3 года назад)
could I just use degreaser instead of this fancy cleaning spray?
Bud E (3 года назад)
Sorry, but this just looks like a bad idea.  Spraying pressurized water into an area where there are dozens of electrical connectors.  May not cause any problems for months, but as the water which got into all the nooks and crannies starts to rust critical electrical connectors, you're going to wish you never did this.  Just my 2 cents.

Its around 10 years old now and besides breakpads, its never given me any problems. 20$ fills the gas tank and lasts 2 weeks. I love my civic lol.

DV7Dave (3 года назад)
+R34GTRR35  Very few who know how can be bothered and those who do are often showing their car.  There are even fewer willing to pay someone who knows how to do it...And at the end of the day, hardly anybody is going to see the fruits of your labour. I'd definitely do it that way if I knew how though!

SiMoS MCmuffin (3 года назад)
If you need to do maintenance in the engine bay, it's not fun if everything is covered in dirt and grime. It's also easier to see if there are any leaks.
MrMidway24 (3 года назад)
by the way people just an FYI I have pressure washed hundreds of motors and never had a problem so there is no risk really. Only thing is make sure car is running when you start wetting motor and also make sure motor is not very hot and you don't want water very cold as this combination is perfect conditions to crack the block. I never bother covering with plastic or any of that crap. Just don't wash too much the less the better get the job done and be done don't make a big project out of it!

+Blair Hunter what a bloody idiot you mate! There's no risk in doing this just clear of the electrics as stated in the video and nothing can go wrong at all
feeunit2 (3 года назад)
+Blair Hunter Many people refer to a gasoline or diesel engine as a motor. Here is the definition of a motor. "Motor - a machine, especially one powered by electricity or internal combustion, that supplies motive power for a vehicle or for some other device with moving parts."  Additionally, many refer to automobiles as motor vehicles, not engine vehicles.  So, before you ridicule someone else on the internet about their use of the English language, a quick google search on the definition of the word(s) in question might be in order.
MrMidway24 (3 года назад)
Engine. Does that make you happy now Blair? Either way I haven't had a problem yet. So please explain to me how I am going to break something when I haven't had a single problem yet! Go ahead I'm waiting!...
Blair Hunter (3 года назад)
The fact that you say motor shows how little you really know. Unless all the cars you've cleaned are electric ? gas or diesel have internal combustions there for are engine bays not "motor bay" and you run the car ? That's retarded what about water causing sparks to jump from your negative to positive and frying something lol and you think it's good for you belts to be spinning while your soaking the engine bay ? Smh

simon nixon (2 года назад)
Parachute216Reg you can just remove the foam with a clean microfibre cloth or as Jason cc said you can buy an extractor, I use a George vacuum which has the extraction shampoo option , but the Autoglym spray on shampoo does need one if you dont want to go to the expense of purchasing one ! If you do it by hand then after wipeing away the foam just wait for it to dry then vacuum as normal 😊 hope that helps

This looks like a bad idea taking a pressure hose to electronics, and what if your intake house was facing upwars  like in some Hondas, u have to b very cautious would not recommend and what I do is take a rag with cleaner and just wipeit all down sure might not give b pretty results as this but it I know that im not risking damaging anything

Are there actual benefits to engine shampooing besides making it look new? Does it make the car run better?
Alice Rose (4 года назад)
One added benefit is if anything starts leaking you'll be able to easily identify the source as a new leak because all other areas of your engine bay will be clean.

Spray the degreaser in small area n use the brush n work ur way around every corner..for all electrical wire, spray the degreaser into a towl n clean all the wire.. after everything done, used armor all to wibe down all plastic cover, like engine cover, air box, to give it factory show room shine... most importantly take ur damn time, pay attention to detail. The result paid off at the end.

Hi Chvella, Sorry to hear that yor friend had problems, you can take all the precautions in the world but sometimes you will still have problems ! all vehicles are different and some (maybe an older vehicle for instance) are more sensitive to moisture ( some of the earlier fords were notorious for not being very reliable in damp or wet conditions) or maybe have a pre existing problem made worse by washing, if in any doubt avoid cleaning your engine in this way, thanks for viewing, Simon Nixon.
simon nixon (4 года назад)
Hi Luke21352, As long as you dont dwell on the engine with high pressure then it shouldnt be a problem, if you cant reduce the pressure on your washer then just stand back from the engine a few feet, engines are not the problem they used to be as long as you take sensible precautions, e.g covering the more sensitive areas such as ecu's and alarm systems, engines are designed to get wet to a certain extent. All the best and thanks for viewing and commenting, Simon Nixon.
