Cleaning your engine can be a dirty, oily, and grimy job. There are many laws and regulations about cleaning engines in many parts of the world. In this article we focus on making your engine look like-new without harming the environment by eliminating the flushing of oil and other chemicals down the drain.
Commercial operations, such as fleet cleaning, mechanical auto repair centres, bus cleaning depots, etc. have to ensure that none of their waste water is going where it should not. Therefore hazardous products such as engine effluents, vehicle-cleaning detergents and the oily waste water created, must firstly enter a sediment trap and be treated before entering the sewer system, this applies to households too and has to be in compliance with The Environmental Protective Agency who have imposed guidelines which have to be stringently adhered to or offenders face strict action, with very hefty fines if found to be non-compliant and even face business closure.
Wiping down your engine and all of the components that get dirty and dusty can make a huge difference how your engine compartment looks and also perform. Regular cleaning of your engine bay area also makes it easier to spot any leaks and engine irregularities. It is important to be knowledgeable on cleaning an engine to prevent it from being damaged by water or corrosion caused by harsh chemicals. Modern day car engines have expensive ECU electrical management and drive by wire systems which if water ingress occurs through high pressure water cleaning can be seriously damaged or indeed destroyed and cost hundreds if not thousands of pounds to repair or replace.
