Importance of a Car Engine Wash

Is this the first time you have heard about a car engine wash, or rather know that you can actually wash your car engine? Fret not, you are definitely alone! Car engine wash is not commonly known by most people, yet important as part of a car’s maintenance.

For those who have come to know about car engine wash, they may be sceptical about the idea of it. The first thing that naturally comes to mind is that having a wet engine could damage the car and lead to early car breakdowns. However, that is not entirely true! While car engine washing is not as simple as regular car washes, you can avoid damaging your car engine if you have the right tools and methods to get the job done!

Although it is not necessary to remove the debris or use a degreaser to keep your car in proper working order, a clean engine compartment makes a used car look newer and better maintained. That aside, cleaning the engine makes it easier to check for fuel or coolant leaks. Some even claimed that a clean engine even runs a little cooler because removing the gunk formed by dirt, oil and grease allows engines to run cooler!

Besides that, performing car engine wash helps to determine where oil or grease is coming from, such as a leaky valve-cover gasket. Usually small problems such as minor oil leaks can be identified and repaired before it becomes a major problem that will be costly to repair. As oil and grease can accelerate the wear of rubber hoses and plastic parts, using degreaser to clean off the gunk may save you some money on repairs too!

Moreover, working on a clean engine is much more comfortable and dirt-worry free! Having a clean engine helps you to avoid getting full of grease after putting your hands on it, which also means your hands and clothes are less likely to get dirty!

Last but not least, the cosmetic appeal of a clean engine will probably be the biggest payback for most people! Most used cars are thoroughly checked through before being put up for sale, including many sold by private owners, so buyers have come to expect to see a clean engine when they browse for second hand cars. A dirty engine on a used car will not hurt its curb appeal, it will also affect the sale price!

As car engine wash is not an easy process, we recommend consulting car service experts before attempting on your own! Looking for a reliable platform to sell your used car?
