i think it depends on the car engine...engine now days almost certainly have plastic cover over the head assembly...in some luxury car you cant even see the engine at all...almost the entire engine bay have been cover with plastic...plastic surfaces is easier to clean compared to metal surfaces...if plastic IMHO you can get away with cleaning by using a simple detergent and wipe the dirt away...older engine like mine usually bare metal...without water+detergent+hard scrubbing ...i doubt that i wont be able to clean it at all...regardless how powerful the detergent is...From what I read from KC2's Thread, he is only using Optimum Clean to clean the engine and not spraying any water into the engine bay. It is really clean, and result is great...:)
next to esso or share place with esso bro?U need to find the careful car wash team .. usually, the engine wash guys will cover the ignition & alternator with plastic bag.. then wash with degreaser soap.. engine will be sparkling clean & smooth to drive..
There is 1 place in J.b, taman kebun teh, next to esso kiosk.
But, now need to find a reliable one in K.L.
The car wash is next to ESSO.. a small down slope.. ( not the esso along the main rd ) There is a proton service centre also. I 've been washing my engine or introducing my friends, there for more 10yrs..next to esso or share place with esso bro?

Well, I don't really trust them after I saw what happen at the car wash nearby my area. The most also I will ask them to wash the bottom of my ride.usually if i go to the car wash shop, i will tell them which part of the engine will gonna be covered, and i'm gonna observe them carefully where they spraying the water around the engine, the once finished wash the engine, make sure you ask the "tukang cuci" to use the air compressor gun to dry out all the water covered on the engine.. and don't forget to ask them to spray air gun bellow the bonnet engine if you have a insulator engine below the bonnet, coz sometimes if the water still not dry out on the insulated, the water will fell on somw of the important engine part and maybe can causing damage on electrical component... that usually my practices la if i wash my engine at the car wash...
