How much does that cost usually?

I've wondered this too and actually went a cash wash place the other day where you hand wash it and one of the options and I was wondering how it worked and if it safe. Mine needs a good cleaning!

It costs 19.95 but this includes a exterior wash, vacuum, windows, clean rims, apply tire shine, clean engine bay,and wiping down the interior so it's not bad at all.

Living in Montreal my engine gets soaked with slush and salt that comes up from the bottom of the car on a daily basis from Dec- march. It's part of yearly life up here and there is never a problem. I've been cleaning my wife's and my engines for 15 years every spring and fall with engine cleaner and than hosing it off with a sprayer attached to the hose. Never a problem. Just do it when the engine is not hot.

U.S. dollars or pounds? Because where I live you get what you mentioned minus the engine

Well I work at the Ford dealership in Fresno. We charge our customers 19.95 for a full detail. Wash, vac, clean wheels, apply tire shine, windows, Etc.. We also give customers a courtesy engine wash if too dirty. Just go to your local dealer and pay for a car wash and have them add a not to the detailers to spray down the engine for you.
