- Get ready to start your engine
Preparing your engine for cleaning is the first step. Allow the engine to cool down for 20-30 minutes before you start cleaning. It is not a good idea to begin cleaning the engine while it is still hot. Before cleaning out the engine, protect the electrical components. Remove the batteries and disconnect them. You can also use a bag to cover critical fuse panels, electronics or air intakes.
- Use a degreaser to clean your floors
Make sure your engine is cool. Apply degreaser liberally to the engine. It is important to not inhale the mist or get it into your eyes. Wearing gloves and a mask are recommended. You should clean around seals and gaskets on the engine block, especially if there has been oil spilt. You must remove any covers or other components that block access to the engine’s dirtiest and most greasiest areas. Allow it to work for about 10-15 minutes, then let it take effect on your engine hood.
- Rinse the engine
Use water to clean your engine. You can use a garden hose to clean your engine. Avoid getting water into electrical components like alternators, coils or fuse boxes. It is also important to prevent water from entering your intake or airbox. Cover your engine’s breathing system with a bag or several cloths.
- Repeat if necessary
You can add more degreaser to make the final result even better. After spraying each part, scrub it with your brush. You should wash off the degreaser as well as any loose dirt. You should take the time to check that there are no electrical or water debris in your intake.
- Drying the Engine
You might be wondering how to dry everything. Although a towel or cloth can be used to dry the engine compartment, it will not remove all water. Instead, let your engine air dry before you wipe it with a suitable cloth. An alternative is to connect your compressor’s hose to an air gun and blow the air around the engine bay. Be sure to avoid any areas where water may accumulate. You can now reconnect your Nissan Altima’s battery and enjoy a safe ride with a clean engine.
