I've had my gt for a while now. Haven't really cleaned the bay except occasionally when I wash my car but I use a towel with water. Ppl tell me that they power wash there engine but idk about that because the alternator and stuff. I would think if water hits it, it can be damages. Does anyone know of a best/safe way that I can make my engine spotless? I am open for suggestion.

From what i have read,you never want to power wash the engine bay,
because of all the computer sensors.They can possibly get wet or damaged.
All I use to clean,is a warm damp cloth or scrub pad and degreaser.
Then I dry it,with a clean rag.

My tools of choice! Spray the degreaser on and use the brush to loosen the grease then wipe it off with a rag. And i use a tooth brush for tight areas:)

Ive only used super tech engine degreaser because i have a bunch of cans, stuff works great for me though. When i run out imma try a different kind. Other people on here have used some that make the engine look great! Just take a trip to any auto parts store and pick one out and try it:)

the best way is to never let it get nasty to begin with, you can generally do it by hand and use simple green for grime and your choice of protectant for rubber/painted areas/metal (nothing shinny though or greasy)

I've always used the wand at a car wash. Been doing it for years that way with no problems, I just make sure and use STATIC pressure only around electrical stuff, otherwise lay into it and it always comes out like brand new again. I also do this with all the cars I work on as a side job. Helps bring people back when you go the extra mile and spend $5 at the car wash for them. ...."oh Wow, it hasn't been like that since I first bought it!"
