When i cleaned my engine bay after a 'small' oil spillage i just got a steam water blaster and a whole heap of degreaser and just went mental, just sprayed it everywhere, a little bit of elbow grease and man it came up absolutely spotless.

However areas to avoid are battery, coil packs, spark plugs.

i never put a pressure washer/steam cleaner near my engine. Too many delicate electronics that can be disturbed.

I used gunk on a tooth brush and a tiny sponge with some liquid detergent on. Then polish up using either turtle wax or metal polishes and wire wool.

I've been told that too, but nothing has happened since i did it to my engine, however we did blow the plugs out.
