An informed driver is a happy driver, so MARK MITSUBISHI-NM wants to help you understand how to care for your vehicle. You probably wash your car regularly, but do you clean your engine? When your engine is clean, your car runs cooler and functions better. A clean engine bay can also play a part in higher trade-in values.

Clean your engine on a warm day with minimal humidity. The engine should be cool to the touch. Spraying cold water on a hot motor can damage your engine. You'll want to remove any plastic covers and protect electrical components with plastic bags.

Use a degreaser to remove grime. There are degreasers made specifically for automobiles, but you can also use a kitchen degreaser. Scrub your engine thoroughly. We recommend using a garden hose or a power washer set to the lowest setting for rinsing.
