Dirty Engine Compartment? Here’s How to Tackle It

When it comes to cleaning an engine, many drivers don’t know where to start. If you want every inch of your car to be spotless, then here are a few tips that you can use to thoroughly clean the engine compartment.

The first step in this process is detaching and removing the battery. Cleaning the engine while the battery is attached could result in serious damage and an extra trip to the service department here at Laplante Dodge. You should also park your car in the shade and give the engine at least 30 minutes to cool down if you have been driving through the streets of Embrun.

To remove liquids, brake dust, and other gunk, you should use an eco-friendly degreaser and a few shop towels. The final step in this process is spraying down the entire compartment with a hose before reattaching the battery.
