The engine under the hood of your automobile is probably not an area that you've thought about cleaning. There are benefits of giving it a quick clean. You'll be protecting it from particles that could work their way into the engine itself. If you're not sure where to start, Southgate Lincoln has some tips that can help you out.

You can start by removing any dirt or debris that you see on the engine, in the louvers on the hood or in the vent openings. You'll then want to run your engine for about 15 minutes to soften up any dirt that is on your engine.

Use an engine degreaser that is citrus based for the best results. Let it sit for the recommended amount of time. You'll then use a gentle spray from a hose to rinse everything away. Don't forget to dry your engine off.
