I am always very leary about spraying down my engine compartment.

I just know that something is going to break because of it :mad:

Simple Green - ahhh the stuff that we love down in engineering. Works pretty good to clean vinyl siding too. But I degress.. Thanks for the tips/ reminder for some of us. There are plenty of aluminum parts under the hood. As far as spraying it off, the only thing that I have screwed up so far under the hood is the hood light, blown that a couple of times. I usually wash mine off after every wheelin date. Just use a light spray to wash off the dirt and dust. Everything will handle a little bit of water.

Everyone says use a light spray of water.
I have a 1300 PSI pressure washer that I use. Have been using it for 2 years, on my Durangos and now the Jeep. Have never had a problem. I don't spray directly at the control boxes, but other than that, all is fare game.
Maybe I have just been lucky so far.

re

want to keep your ride always looking new under the hood? after washing and cleaning the engine compartment, mist with some wd-40. This will seal and preserve all the aluminum, plastic, metal parts by repeling the water. Just a misit... you don't want to over do it. It has worked for me ever since my friend told me about it. He sprays it on his Jet skies engines, and they get serious abuse from the salt water.
