You take pride in keeping the outside of your car looking good. But, how about the inside of the engine bay? Cleaning the engine isn't difficult. The team here at DCH Kia of Temecula wants to help you with all aspects of your car care. Here's how to get your engine clean and shiny.

Do it on a warm, slightly windy day. Let the engine cool down if you've been driving it. When it's cool, remove any plastic covers under the hood. You need to access the dirty parts. Remove the battery from the car to avoid damaging the vehicle's electronics. Cover electronics with plastic for extra protection.

Spray the entire engine bay with degreaser. Be generous. Scrub any areas with caked-on grime. Use a garden hose to spray away the degreaser. Let the engine dry out, remove the protective plastic, and reinstall the battery. If you need automotive service, stop by the dealership here in Temecula, CA.
