[DML] Re: Engine Wash

Generally you should NOT wash an engine. You are asking for trouble. 
Wiping is the safest way in my opinion. Any sort of pressure, 
including air, can send loose grime into seals around the crank 
shaft, water pump, electrical connections, alternator, the AC seals, 
and around the injectors or spark plug wells (spark plug wells can 
hold water a long time and may rust the plugs to the head).

Use some WD-40 on a cold engine and wipe it off (this stuff is great 
for cleaning the aluminum engine and grease will met off) or around 
non sensitive areas spray on some brake clean (the non-flammable 
kind) and wipe off. But, be careful not to point the spray at 
sensitive joints and connections.
