Sounds simple enough warm engine, spray on gunk cleaner and hose off. Not so fast. I want to do this in a way as to not create problems where they do not exist, like getting water into places where it should not be and cause trouble. Has someone posted the steps to do this correctly?

there really isn't much to it as long as you're not pressure washing the engine on high...cover up the dizzy with a plastic bag and wash away..:thumbup

Where does all the cruddy, oily, degreaser mixture go?
Being from NoCal I can only assume you want to turn this thread into an argument on how the OP will be single handidly destroying the environment by degreasing his engine.

Using a do it yourself carwash that recycles the water would be a good environmentally friendly choice

Stereotype much? That's not at all my intention. I need to clean mine, and I'm curious how others manage it.

The ones I have looked at around here have "NO ENGINE WASHING" signs and security cams.

Haha, the stereotyping was sarcasm. Its your call as to where the cruddy water runs. Let it flow into the sewer or wherever your driveway drains or place collection bins under your truck and take those to a collection site.
Obliviously it depends on where you are doing this...if I do it in my driveway it runs onto my lawn. YOU are the only one who determines where it goes

So if your car exterior was covered in oil, it's alright to wash it off there? Just not the engine bay? Ask them to clarify their stance. I've never been to a do it yourself carwash that had signs saying 'No engine washing', let alone one that bothered to install security cameras to watch overweight middle aged guys and teenagers wash their cars.
