Here's my advice on doing engine shampoo
1. make sure that you use a good cleaning product I like to use a citrus cleaner the main reason I like to use it is because its safe to use and is non toxic and it will not damage any parts in the engine bay
2. always make sure the engine is not hot make sure its cool under the hood before you do an engine shampoo
3.The best way to clean and rise and engine bar is with a pressure washer
but do not hold it close to the air box or the wiring or the box where the computer control unit is
4. use compressed air to blow off the engine bar area this is you best way to dry the engine bay. If you don't have compressed air then you will have to use a rag or cloth and a chamois to dry the engine bay but make sure this chamois is not the one you use to dry your car off with and then after you dry it off start up the car and let it run for a few minutes to make sure everything is okay
5. final step detailing the engine bar with a dressing to shine the rubber and plastic and it also protects the rubber and plastic
as for your sensor failing its hard to really say the engine shampoo did the damage I have never had a problem when doing a engine shampoo maybe I'm just lucky but with today's high tech cars you never know when something can go wrong with them
