How to Clean Honda Accord the Engine Bay
How to clean the engine bay, that would be the question that trouble you for a long time. There’s dust, dry, dirty, oil spill, leaks, etc.… So now you want to clean it, it will need to spray with cleaner, brush, and rinse several times, but you’re a bit worried if spraying water onto the engine will damage any components, or worse, shut off your car completely.
For protection, some people will tell you to remove the battery before cleaning the engine. In my opinion, before you spray the car’s engine compartment with water and degreaser, be sure to cover sensitive electrical parts with a plastic bag. Those are the areas that you really don’t want water or degreaser pooling in. Cover these electrical parts with a bag, then be sure to remove the bag before you start your engine.
