When most people consider washing their car, often-times this means cleaning only the visible parts of the vehicle: paintwork, wheels, windows, etc. However, the engine compartment under the bonnet deserves just as much, if not more, attention.
Cleaning the engine bay should be one of your top priorities when it comes to maintaining your car. Due to the conditions within the engine bay, many components can become caked with detritus very quickly. South East Vehicle Valeting has compiled this short list of reasons why you should keep your engine bay clean as well.
Essential Car Maintenance: Engine Bay Cleaning Benefits:
Oil, grease, and dirt will build up on and around important engine components. You can help these parts continue to work efficiently for longer by cleaning and maintaining these components.
Cleaning your engine gives you the opportunity to learn your car’s anatomy, allowing you to spot problems before they become more serious. Fluid leaks, loose connections, corroded or worn contacts are all easily spotted issues that can be relatively cheap and easy to fix before they become much bigger problems, costing you more down the line.
A clean engine bay can add hundreds of pounds to your resale value. Potential buyers will have more confidence in a vehicle whose engine bay has been maintained than one that wasn’t, as it suggests the rest of the vehicle was likely highly cared for, as well.
It doesn’t need to be cleaned often. Though it may seem like a task, once the engine bay is cleaned it won’t need to be cleaned again for a while. A good rule of thumb is to do it with every full engine service.
