MY dad never covers up anything in the engine bay and has never had a problem. He just takes the bucket of soapy water and pours it on the motor then takes a big brush and scrubs it down. had done that to every car he has. Makes me kinda nervous though when he does it.

Grease Lightening is like $5.

I also don't cover up anything. I let the Grease Lightening sit for 5-10mins then hose it off, but not keeping the hose in one spot too long. Once I'm done, I start the truck up and let it run for a while.

I use the Black Magic engine spray. I dont cover up any electronics spray on everywhere and take a pressure washer to after it sits for a few minutes. I haven't had any problems. Use the pressure washer at the local car wash full blast have done this like 4 times so far this year.

If alot of you are so worried about getting the 'electronics' in the engine bay getting wet.. its pretty obvious you've never been on a wet road before... just stop for a moment and think just how much water gets in there from a heavy rain and trip on the highway. I've never had a problem with it ever.. the only thing I cover now is my K&N air filter.. as I dont feel like waiting for it to dry out to start the truck up. Spray anythign you want.. just try not to spray the cleaner directly onto the alternator.. that -may- cause a problem if it doesnt wash out enough..


Other then that, spray anywhere you want with water.. its all designed to be water-resistant in one way or the other.. !
