How to Detail Your Car's Engine Bay: Tips for a Pristine and Functional Engine


While many car owners focus on exterior and interior detailing, the engine bay often gets overlooked. However, a clean and well-maintained engine bay not only enhances your car's appearance but also contributes to its overall performance. In this blog, presented by PureWax Car Care, we will provide you with valuable tips and techniques for detailing your car's engine bay, ensuring it remains pristine and functional.

Safety First:

Before you begin, ensure the engine is cool to the touch. Disconnect the battery to prevent any accidental electrical contact.


Use a dedicated engine degreaser like PureWax's Engine & Machine Degreaser. Apply it to the engine bay, let it sit for a few minutes, and then scrub gently with a brush.


Carefully rinse off the degreaser using a gentle stream of water. Avoid using high-pressure water directly on sensitive components.


Apply a protective dressing like PureWax's Engine Shine to plastic, rubber, and vinyl components. It helps prevent fading, cracking, and deterioration caused by heat and UV rays.


Use a clean microfiber towel to wipe down any excess dressing, ensuring a streak-free and polished finish.
