get mean green or engine degreaser and a scrub brush and brush it all off and then spray it all off with ta water hose....i did mine and then waited til it dried and then got some spray paint clear at advanced and cleared the whole engine..my dad tought me to..it makes it look brand new and so freaking good and you will love your car afterwards...

just spray like engine or wheel degresser on it with the car off, then was it off with a hose while the car is running.. thats how i do it, its cleans the engine compartment nicly. i u have an air hose then blow off the plugs afterwards but if not then its not a big deal.

just dont use a high pressure hose or drown it in water. if you go to a car wash and select engine degreaser it will spray cleaner at a low pressure, then select rinse but stand back a little bit so the water doesnt git it very hard.

my dad always taight me to run the engine while rinsing so if you do hit something that may hurt it you can stop without drowning it out and discovering youre car won't start when youre done. im sure somebody will say "you'll suck up water in the intake though". as long as you don't purposly soak it you'll be fine, we drive in the rain all the time

drowning a motor was back when cars had distributors. it wont hurt these cars. you can wash them when not running. just cover up your air filter with a walmart bag if you have an open element air filter. then dry up or blow excess water out of the spark plug holes.
