This FAQ page was created to give you more information about our engine cleaning services and what it entails. You can view the engine cleaning service page here.
The engine bay is often overlooked because unless you have to check something with the engine, you hardly ever see it. But regardless, when you do have to open up your hood, would you rather see an engine filled with dirt, leaves, and bugs or would you rather see a clean engine?
Next, when it comes to checking for a leak or changing the oil, having a clean engine bay makes the task much easier and far less messy. So it’s definitely worth getting your engine cleaned.
Just like many things, if you’re not careful, things can get damaged. This same thing applies to our paint correction services. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you can burn through paint.
That being said, we take the proper steps to ensure nothing happens to your engine bay. We don’t flood the engine with water. We use just enough to rinse off the cleaner and dirt (which isn’t much). We use the wand at a safe distance. We cover up any sensitive areas for added precaution.
If you do the complete opposite and you’re spraying high pressure water right into all the electrical, the intake, and holding it really close to the parts, then you’re going to have a bad time.
We have cleaned well over 100 engines by now and we’ve never had a problem with an engine not starting or throwing a check engine light code.
At this time, we no longer offer this as a standalone mobile service. If you’d like this service to be done at your location, you can either pair it with a Full Interior Cleaning or a Wash and Wax at a minimum. Other than that, you can schedule it and bring the vehicle into our shop.
We definitely can polish your engine! For painted surfaces, as long as there’s a clear coat over the paint, it can be polished. So if you have aftermarket or OEM parts that need to be brightened up, we can do that. We have 1” and 3” polishers that can get into tight areas. And for the really intricate areas, we’ll go by hand to get them as best that we can.
