Our team at Audi North Orlando in Sanford, FL shares a goal to help our customers keep their vehicles in good condition. Engines should be cleaned every year or two, which will extend its life and enhance its performance. How do you clean an engine? Find out below.

It is best if you clean your engine when the weather is warm and the humidity is low. Furthermore, if there is a breeze, it will help the engine compartment dry faster. Never try to clean an engine when it is hot. If your vehicle has been running, then let it cool down for about 15 minutes before you begin.

Take off any plastic components that are under the hood, and you should also cover any sensitive electrical components that could get damaged by water or degreaser. Plastic bags are ideal covers for electrical components. After you spray the engine compartment with a degreaser, then you can use a synthetic scrub brush to remove dirt and oil build up. A water hose or sprayer can be used to rinse the engine, and you can use compressed air or a towel to remove excess water.
