    Default How to wash engine of suzuki swift or new EFI cars?

    Any body can give some idea how to wash the engine of suzuki swift?
    is it safe to ask person at service station to just wash it with pressure?because if u just cover ECU than there are so many other electronic naked wires and sensors that y not them 2.
    Any suggestions or experiences any body having please share

    Leave sooner, drive slower, live longer.

    Even if you dont have an EFI car, it is still not reccomended to wash the engine with high pressure water jet.
    In case of cars with ECU in engine bay, more care should be taken.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    Most of service stations washes every thing under the hood and then spray diesel over it so don't let them spray diesel or use high pressure ... I think Direct sunlight is best solution so far....

    No EFI car engine should be washed. Instead get it cleaned manually with low pressure water.

    place a plastic cover over the ignition coil and wash it properly.

    make sure water does not goes inside.

    its good to keep engine clean and we all should

    BHAI I washed my swift engine twice last year. Just by covering ecu with plastic sheet and get the engine bay cleaned.
    Note that service station guy put his hand in front of water nozzle to reduce pressure and I left the battery and ecu place from wasing. Just cleaned that area with pressured air at the service station paying 50 rs xtra and cleaned it my self to achieve the satisfaction :-)

    But b b b very careful as ecu is very sensitive and I took the risk :-)
    May Allah give us strength to extend happiness around us
