1) Make sure engine is slightly warm (not hot, but warm)
2) Cover all electricals with aluminum foil (cover the cruise, ABS, data port, etc)
3) Spray on some engine cleaner solution (50/50 mix of simple green + water, or 50/50 mix of Eagle One A2Z wheel cleaner + water, or Eimann Fabrik Hi Intensity Wash, or Zymol's Engine cleaner) & let it sit about 1-2 min's.
4) Use a soft brush (paint brush) & old wash mitt to wash/scrub the engine compartment.
5) Rinse with water
6) Remove aluminum foil
7) Dry the aluminum pieces (prevents spotting)
8) Let the car idle for about 10 minutes, then take it for a drive <br>
