Greetings-

Just a quick question. Being in New england, the winter has been tough on the exterior of my Altima. I am going to have it detailed in the next few weeks. Any suggestions on the engine compartment on how to clean it? I heard steam cleaning to chemicals sprayed on and washed off

Thanks
Frank

I use Simple Green on light grease and touch ups but for heavy grease I use Castrol Super Clean. The painted peripheral areas I wash it with car wash soap and water after using the degreaser. I pressure wash the whole thing avoiding the direct blasts to the alternator and distributor. Use an air hose to dry everything, spray all the rubber and plastic parts with a protectant and wipe the painted surfaces down with an old clean towel. Different people do different things but that is what works for me.
