Road To a Clean Engine Car Parts

Here are some frequently asked questions about your car engine you could use to ease your fears.

 The car engine is the heart of the car, so you need to take good care of it. But most of us are too scared to touch the engine out of fear that we may affect its working in some way.

Q) Is it safe to use a degreaser on the engine?
A) Yes, it’s perfectly safe. What you need to do is first warm up the car engine to soften the grease and crud. Next spray the engine with high quality non-petroleum based degreaser and let it remain for a few minutes. Now hose it off with water and wipe it with a soft cloth.

Q) Is it safe to hose off the engine?
A) Yes it is safe but make sure you don’t spray water on a hot engine. Sudden temperature changes can really damage your engine. Cover all the critical parts of the car before spraying water on it.

Q) How can you clean the engine internally?
A) Don’t try cleaning the engine internally by adding additives. These only clog up the oil and fuel lines and create sludge in them. The best way is to change the oil and air filter.

Q) Can I clean the air intake port with my vaccum cleaner?
A) No! Don’t use your vaccum cleaner near the air ports. The extra pressure may damage the sensitive air flow system. Let that job remain for the complete servicing of your car.

Q) Is it alright to scrub off the grease from the engine?
A) You can scrub the engine to an extent but not too much. The initial coating given by the manufacturer is put over 3 days by warming and hardening. So it won’t come off quickly. Be patient. Excessive scrubbing can also damage the paint job on your engine.
