View Full Version : Engine bay cleaning

I'm thinking about getting my engine bay shampooed/cleaned etc. Some people say it's better to NOT do it as the dirt and grime buildup will actually prevent leaks. Others say to do it since my car is driven year-round.

Has anybody had any problems as a result of cleaning the engine bay with degreasers etc, or, can anybody share some success stories of an engine bay cleaning and no problems etc...

Thanks,
Ara

i would be very interested in this also, cuz mine is nasty n dirty, but ppl r telling me to leave it cuz it protects...

also if i do clean it, what parts should i cover up (and how) to not damage any of the electrical parts (i have an e30)

Well, apparently you're supposed to cover the airbox, the distributor and any other exposed electrical components. I wouldn't do the job personally but I would have the pros do it.

ive had it done, but it didnt come out perfect. 12 years of dirt doesnt just come of that easy, you may have to have it done a couple times.

when i had this done, one of my sensors got fuked up, i think it was the oil pressure one. i wouldnt worry though that stuff only happens to me.

ara why do you keep attaching your sign? right click on your sign, highlight everything in the properties box and paste it in the sign box.

I have to do that because I use the computer at work (I don't have one at home right now so I can't host the picture anywhere except on a diskette). Any ideas for this?

like i said you dont need to host it, having it posted on this thread is all you need.

right click the pic and go in properties, it tells you the address, of the pic
