How to Clean the Car Engine

How to Clean the Car Engine in Eight Steps

The tips made by experts, who explains how we should perform the cleaning of our car’s engine, where to have more caution and the benefits of having every mechanical component clean.

The cleaning of the engine is divided into several steps. If you follow them with caution, you will get a propeller with a new appearance, thus avoiding corrosion or any other problem that may arise due to dirt. There is also a special emphasis on the type of car, differentiating between the types of engines since the coatings and the parts in the air vary from one to another. These tips are linked to those of cleaning the upholstery, and the keys to wash the car correctly, with which you will have the car as new.

Step 1: Do not scratch the car during cleaning

The first recommendation is to cover with a towel or rag the areas of the car that we will support during cleaning, to avoid scratching the car with the belt or anything else.

Step 2: Check the motor temperature

It must be checked if the engine is cold, warm or hot. In most cases the logical thing is to clean the engine at a temperature between cold and warm, but in others it is advisable to clean it with the hottest engine. This case would be if the engine takes a lot without cleaning or accumulates much dirt. The higher the temperature, the easier it will be for the dirt to dissipate.

Once the temperature has been checked, a pressurized air machine can be used to remove the dirt that remains in the body covered by the hood. Normally these areas fill with leaves of the trees and take a lot of dust, so that the pressure air in those nooks and crannies is the best solution.

Step 3: Waterproof the delicate areas of the engine

This step is one of the most important to avoid that a simple cleaning becomes a breakdown. We must cover with plastic and help us with insulating tape to waterproof well the areas of the engine that can be affected badly by water.

All electrical components, battery, distributor, carburetors, filters … must be covered with plastic so that the water never reaches them. If this happens it can lead to a fault for the motor. We must also take care to remove greases from the areas where they are needed.

Step 4: Wet the engine without water under pressure

In this step we must wet the engine in a smooth way and spread over all areas.

Step 5: Apply a multi-purpose cleaner

Once the entire engine is wet, we can apply a multi-purpose cleaner, and with the help of a brush start distributing and cleaning the entire engine. It is important to distribute the entire cleaner before it evaporates or dries on any part, working all the time with the wet motor. For less accessible areas it is recommended that we use smaller brushes and thus reach any side.

Once we have done everything, we will have to wet everything again to finish cleaning the engine.

Step 6: Drying the motor

Now it would be time to dry the engine, which can be done with air or with simple towels, making sure that everything is dry.

Step 7: Remove the plastics that we put

It is time to remove all the plastic with which we waterproof the areas critical to the water, taking special care to remove them in not spilling the water that remains on them. It would be a pity that after cleaning and good insulation of these areas, water was dropped on some unwanted part when removing them.

It would be convenient to pass a towel to make sure everything is dry, and so the water does not reach any of these areas once the plastics have been removed.

Step 8: Polish plastics and wait to start the engine

Once dry everything can be used to pass some polish to the areas with plastics, so that everything is shinier after cleaning.

In many cases it is advisable to wait a couple of hours after cleaning to restart the engine. After that time, it is advisable to start the car and leave it on for two or three minutes, watching and hearing the engine to know if there is any noise or something that is not correct after cleaning.

At this point you will have the engine shining as the first day, safe from corrosion, avoiding breakdowns, and therefore a safer and more reliable car.

We know that many of you are crazy about your cars and want to take care of them every day more, in order to have a nice car at the same time as the day in all aspects of mechanics and safety.

Car Washing Services

CAR WASHING

As a consequence of the use of a vehicle, it is normal for it to get dirty, both inside and outside.

Mud, dust and also pollution accumulate, either in the body or inside the vehicle. Especially during the winter months, when the rain falls unexpectedly and abundantly, it is very easy to always be with the dirty car.

The lack of attention to the car, in the long run, can damage the materials that compose it, both inside and outside, with the risk of permanently ruining the aesthetics of the vehicle and, especially in the case of interiors, create problems for the driver and passengers, generating allergies, such as dust, or other problems of different nature.

INTERNAL WASHING / WASHING UPHOLSTERY

The Car washing and cleaning service of the interior and upholstery of Detail King is a comprehensive service that allows you to eliminate any type of stain or dirt inside a vehicle, whether for commercial or private use.

The service includes everything from the removal of stains to the removal of sand or pebbles, from the cleaning of interior glass panels to the polishing and cleaning of the seats and the plastics that make up the interior.

EXTERIOR WASH

The exterior of the vehicle is the place where it is possible to accumulate the most obvious part of the dirt since it is the most exposed to the weather and various types of external agents.

There are innumerable external factors that can stain or cause damage to the aesthetics of a vehicle, such as rain, domestic and non-domestic animals (for example dogs or cats, but also pigeons), pebbles and many others.

Therefore, it is important to always wash with suitable soaps and apply the most appropriate and effective protection products.

BODYWORK

The body is, generally, the first victim of dirt, which can be originated in the most diverse ways and therefore, it will be of the most diverse nature.

The dirt can be caused, for example, by a car that overtakes and, when passing through a well with mud, it splashes on the body and tires; when going through an area under construction, the dust raised by the movement of the car can “rain” on it; but also another type of dirt or pebbles, a summer storm or a snowfall can create even more dirt and stains in the car. From a tree can fall resin or leaves, the wind can transport dirt or dust that can get into the corners or on the roofs, stray animals (but also domestic) can urinate on the tires or on the door, typical birds of the city as example pigeons, or seagulls for those who live in the area of the sea, can relieve themselves on the roof or on the bonnet of the vehicle.

In the car washes of the workshops, the cleaning of the external body of the car is offered, and the most appropriate products are applied to protect and reduce future stains, such as the application of special protective waxes on the bodywork or products for protection of fenders and alloy wheels.

TIRES

Tires, either plastic or alloy, are one of the most visible elements of a vehicle.

A dirty tire gives the idea of a car that is not taken care of and a careless owner, while a beautiful clean and bright tire, result obtainable especially for those vehicles equipped with alloy wheels, suggests an owner who takes care of his own vehicle and takes care of the details.

Tire cleaning is not a particularly difficult practice, but a poorly trained eye can easily see the difference between a rim cleaned by a professional and a rim cleaned by an amateur, especially when they are made of alloy, a very pleasing material to look at, but also delicate and easy to get dirty, in particular, because of its location so close to the street.

Wax for car and protection of the paint

The washing of a vehicle does not end with the total cleaning of it; it is always convenient to accompany and complement it with the choice of appropriate products to protect and preserve the work done, the paint and the materials that make up the interior and exterior of the car. Leather seats, plastic dashboards or more refined and delicate materials, such as the steering wheel or gear lever, but in general all parts of the vehicle, must be protected with specific products to preserve them from the use of atmospheric elements (as for example the sun, which eventually “cooks” the plastics or deteriorates the leathers) and of the small problems of every day (like for example, possible remains of food, animal hairs, dirty shoes with mud, etc. ).

We offer its customers, through the work done by its operators, a complete and durable cleaning also thanks to the use of specific products for the protection of materials.

On the other hand, it is possible to request specific interventions for the removal of rays or for the renewal of headlights and crystals that would normally require the use of specific products or suitable kits.

Detail King is prepared to offer a complete washing service for city cars, luxury cars, saloons, SUVs, motorhomes, vans and commercial vehicles of any kind and affected by any type of stain or dirt.

In addition, thanks to the cooperation with other sectors of the workshop, our staff is prepared to offer a complete service that, starting from the removal of dirt in the body of the vehicle, through the cleaning of the interiors, also guarantees the care ideal of them, with products of proven quality and efficiency.

The car wash service can be carried out at different levels, depending on the customer’s needs, the type of dirt and the type of vehicle.

For example, a sports vehicle may need a good wash the day after a session on the track; so that specific protective product will be necessary, while a sedan, which has spent the weekend walking with children and the dog, may need a good wash inside.

If it is impossible for you, for work or for personal reasons, to run out of a car for the time necessary for the intervention, either for your washing or for a mechanical repair, you can request an appointment and arrange to ask for a substitute car so you do not stay on foot.

As a general rule, when you are going to use a new cleaner, try it in a non-visible area to check that it does not damage the fabric.

First, it clears the surface of the entire interior. You must remove all the elements that may hinder the cleaning of the surface. After a long journey, it is normal to find all kinds of “forgotten” items in the seats of the car.

With the clean upholstery we will vacuum, to remove any small dirt and vacuum all the dust. Vacuum carefully in all corners and from back to front to drag dirt. Make special emphasis on the union between the backrest and the seat, which is where more dirt accumulates.

Remove stains from the upholstery

To correctly remove the stains of the upholstery will depend on the type that we face, since each one will need a different treatment:

  • The gum sticks must be hardened with ice and removed, with great care, with the help of a spatula.
  • The vomiting is very important to wash it as soon as possible with soap and water.
  • For grease stains, try a little degreaser mixed with water.
  • The mud stains dry, rub them with a brush without wetting and when it is removed all the earth passes back the damp brush.

Dry foam

There are many cleaners on the market, including some specific ones depending on the type of stain, but the cleaner par excellence for car upholstery is dry foam.

Inside the interior cleaning of cars there are many tricks to eliminate this kind of smell although it must be said that many are home remedies and although they work, they do it in a parenthesis of quite large time, so that smell will not go away for quite some time.

What causes this smell is the materials that are used in the manufacture and assembly of the dashboard and also in the coatings of the interior walls of the doors, which means that being so close to where we sit, the smell seems so intense in every moment.

For example, placing a cup of coffee on the dashboard during the night, making sure it is on a surface where you cannot fall, the smell will be a bit reduced, and it will be more as we leave a new cup of coffee another night more, although this, in the end, ends up being certainly cumbersome.

Benefits of Tire Washing

Car Wheel and Tires Detailing Guide

Within the section of the cleaning of the automobile, it is necessary to emphasize the tires, one of the points in which not all the users’ repair and that is very important. That is why we are going to talk to you about some of the benefits of properly washing the tires.

Why should we wash the tires?

As often happens with the front of the car, both the defense, as the optics or the calendar, the tires are one of the areas that can get more dirt due to continuous contact with the firm.

For this reason, we must pay special attention to this area because although it may seem otherwise, dirt can become a problem and not only aesthetic.

Tips to Protect Car Paint

The accumulation of dirt that may be in the area of tires and tires can make it all come to the brake, material that is manufactured brake pads. This can cause it to wear faster or even have some kind of problem to brake, especially if it is an unexpected braking.

Another very important point and for which we must pay special attention not only to the washing of the tire itself but also to the tire, is the aesthetic section. What is the value of washing the car thoroughly if you have not taken special care with the tire-rim assembly?

For that reason, when it comes to washing the car in depth, the best advice is to start directly with the area of the tires and tires. If we leave it for the end, we may splash the rest of the car clean and would do the job again, although it is best to trust the professionals and they are the ones who are responsible for leaving the car with the best possible appearance.

A little history about tires

Many of the vehicles of today have aluminum wheels as standard or even tend to suit the tastes of each person, but mainly for aesthetic reasons and if what is sought is to have a good appearance in relation to the car … Why go with dirty tires? Nobody likes to go with their dirty car and the tires are one of the parts that usually accumulate more dirt as the vehicle is used, so it is always advisable to wash cars by hand to ensure they always look the best.

Sports, urban, off-road, at present there are a large number of models of tires for each class of vehicle, also called wheels (rin) as they are called in some countries of America. Where are you from? They may seem very modern but have nothing to do with the first ones that were made, which consisted of metal rings, usually, iron or steel, with different widths and that fit externally on the wheels of the cars.

The cannons and other pieces of artillery of yesteryear had thick wooden wheels to support their own weight, but instead of going with the wood exposed, the wheels were half-covered by different parts of metal with the same curvature as the wheels, facilitating a greater resistance against the blows suffered by the wheels in the transport itself, giving them much more hardness.

Wheel Refurbishment Process

Civilian vehicles also used tires in the same way as military cars and guns. These covered the entire exterior of the wooden wheel with the same sheet of metal that was attached to the wood by nails or screws embedded in the rim itself. At first, they were quite thin but this, in addition to making travel uncomfortable, spoiled the floor they passed, especially if it was made of stone.

As time went by, the surface of the rim became wider and gradually evolved to what it is today, a motif of distinction with which to give the car a sporty touch, with which to fix the tires and at the same time give a better look to the vehicle in question, regardless of whether it is a series car, an SUV or a supercar, but the important thing is always to offer a good appearance with these parts of the car so exposed to dirt.
