Pressure wash

Is it safe to pressure wash all the grease off the engine?

As long as you cover all the electronic components, sure

I dont think I would. I clean/wash my engine every time I was my Mustang but I dont use a pressure washer and afterwards I use a gas blower to blow out all the water and then I detail it.

Now for the underside of my Mustang I use my pressure washer and also dry it best I can with my gas blower and then I use under carriage detail spray on it and it makes the underside of my Mustang look better than a brand new car....

I've pressure washed my engine several rimes. I've never cover anything. I just try not to directly spray the distributor. You shouldn't have any issues...if you do then that part should replaced anyway
