Keep the engine running when cleaning it and don't get the wand too close to the electricals.

Don't steam clean a hot engine either as it will strip the laquer/paint especially if you have used Gunk

same with jet-washing, make sure your engine is running, you may also need to keep some in the car to keep the revs up because if your distributer or sparkies get flooded, you'll have to wait a long time before you can drive the car, you'll have to wait until everything has dried up :laugh: im speaking from experience :p

exactly i used polythene bags and cable ties to cover the induction kit and a few other ancilaries and electrical parts
I meant as in using bags over your induction kit will surely stop your engine running... I stop my RC Car engine by blocking the air filter, surely it works the same on big cars too?
