How to Clean Your Car’s Engine

Informed car owners who are able to care for their own car when possible are much more likely to extend the lifetimes of their cars. That is why we here at DCH Tustin Acura want to be sure that you know how to properly clean your car's engine.

First, make sure that your car has been allowed to sit idle and cool down long before you begin cleaning the engine. Next, you should carefully remove any of the plastic covers under the hood. This is because they will block you from being able to clean the actual engine.

Make sure to cover the electrical components with either plastic bags or a small tarp so that they don't get wet. Next, apply a healthy coating of degreaser to your engine and scrub vigorously. Finally, rinse the engine with a garden hose so that none of the degreaser is left behind.
