If you’ve never cleaned under your vehicle’s hood, you might be surprised at how easy it is.

Engine components can be damaged if they are sprayed with cold water while still hot, so always allow the engine to cool for a few hours or overnight before attempting to clean it. Take time to also protect any engine parts that shouldn’t get wet with a plastic trash bag or other covering.

Spray dirty areas with engine cleaner or degreaser, and let it do its work before rinsing off with water. Use a plastic scouring pad or scrub brush to go over any areas that are still dirty after the initial cleaning.
