I'd like to know what methods you use when cleaning/detailing your engine compartment.

I use various cleaners when I wipe down the areas under the hood, but that doesn't get everything as clean and free of dust and dirt in the nooks and crannies.

When I had my '86, I was able to spray the entire engine compartment with Simple Green and then hose it out.

When I got my '94, I couldn't spray down the engine compartment any more, for fear that I'd damage the opti-spark.

What considerations are there for the C5 engine comopartment? Inquiring minds want to know?

aloha,
i cover the alternator really well with a plastic bag,simple green everything and light spray down the whole engine and everything else.then i use zaino #2 on everything,(use your favorite product)i dont like armor-all because it will eventually fade things and it collects dust.i've done this at least 50 times.all the aluminium i polished so i use mothers on that.it stays clean for long periods too.good luck.
