4.3. Wash of the engine

In an engine zone the considerable raid is formed of mix of oil and dust over time. First of all it is an esthetic problem which you can eliminate by means of special detergent. The wash of the engine and a motor compartment is also necessary.
Salt which spray roads in the winter gets through cracks under a cowl and is besieged on a radiator, cables and other details. This salt raid interferes with evaporation of moisture and strengthens corrosion.
After a sink check whether there is enough lubricant in levers and drafts, a cable of management. If necessary grease them in addition.

SEQUENCE OF WORKS
Sink is carried out on the cold engine as on the warm engine means for cleaning will evaporate, without having managed to influence a dirt film.
1. Switch off ignition.
2. Close the electronic block, the generator and a fuel supply system a rag or a plastic package, otherwise surely there will be hindrances in ignition or onboard electronics.
3. Begin with a cowl. Wash out its large number waters, then clean car shampoo, using a sponge, and again wash out water. Do not forget about engine stiffening ribs — the greatest number of dirt accumulates there.
4. Wash a radiator with a large amount of water, using a narrow tip for a hose. Process sites with remains of insects the detergent dissolving protein (means for washing of ware).

       PREVENTION
Rigid brushes can damage soft lamels of a radiator.

5. Wash out grooves and the pro-thinned-out parts.

6. Sprinkle strongly polluted sites of the engine and a motor compartment means for cleaning of the engine, wait 1–2 min. and wash out a powerful stream of water (fig. 3.9).

7. That later sinks to remove water from an engine zone, use the gun with compressed air.

PRACTICAL ADVICE
Varnish for protection of the engine
That dirt accumulated on the engine and in a surrounding zone less, process the engine and the periphery a special heat-resistant protective varnish (). For other zones it is enough to use spray or the protectant for preservation of fig. 3.10
