  • I do pretty much everything not to. I hose the engine down with a hose and get it all wet then spray cleaner over the whole thing. Hose back down. Done. 10 minutes. It doesn't look like a 500 greenback detail but it's nice enough.

  • Mechanics won’t treat your car any differently clean or dirty. They don’t give a shit about your car. All they care about is your money. They might even say you fucked up your sensors or computer or fuses by cleaning your engine just so they can charge you more money. Just fix everything yourself.

  • I keep my engine bays and underneath where the oil pans, transmissions, transfer cases, differentials, wheel wells, struts/shocks, and interior are spotless at all times. The same goes maintenance wise as well, using only premium products. The biggest reasons are - 1. If there is a leak, it can be spotted immediately. 2. Having a dirty engine and/or radiator is the equivalent of wearing a coat in the middle of summer. 3. Vehicles cost way too much to not care for them properly. 4. Confidence - Never know if/when I need to make a last minute trip and knowing either vehicle will get us there and back with almost no chance of mechanical/electrical incidents. And "Yes" - Whenever a mechanic is involved (which is almost nil except for warranty reasons), they do treat my vehicles far better than anyone else's, every time, of which I am always grateful.

    • Keep writing these kind of comments on VIworld videos. I can tell you have a lot wisdom to share with the VIworld community. If only every VIworld comment had numbered bullet points so the information could be more easily processed by us regular people who are missing your vast intelligence. Then one day maybe we too, may receive the level of service you get every time you are serviced!

  • Steam is water. Remove the hood liner, clean and replace. Why not use joy or dawn dish detergent? Cover the alternator and other components like spark plugs? Grass greener on the other side? Every watch the Wizard of Oz?🙃 Ps. Also use paint sticks for faded embossed lettering and after cleaning rusted bolts/screws.😘

    Ray FloresRay Flores29 ngày trước
  • I think, this method only works for maintainence engine bay cleaning. If it is a heavier detailing, you need a degreaser, both fender brush and detail brush.

  • how long did it take you? I've actually thought of using a steam cleaner myself. I never done it before, but just got myself a decent truck, but engine bay is dirty! And I'm gonna learn to detail it myself. Just wondering how long it took you, so it can possibly motivate me to do it a bit more, lol.

  • Thank you for showing such nice and easy tips to keep your ride clean and tidy. Its definitely easy to detail vehicle for people living in private houses, not for us New Yorkers who live in apartments lol. I just bought my camry and wanna do everything by myself so I can be completley satisfied but got no place to plug in all those wires for washers, steamers, vacuum etc. Overall, I really love watching you detailing vehicles perfectly. Its a therapy 😌 keep it up brother 👍🏻✌🏼

    • Let all the windows down. Turn air on highest setting while car is running. Spray 1/3-1/2 can of Lysol or disinfect spray through air intake. And leave the windows down overnight so it can air out throughly.

I like how you explained that we should first blow away or vacuum all the dust and dirt. Removing the battery is a good touch also! Just doing those things alone made this video better than the others. Awesome video!

  • cleaning cosmetically engine bay is stupid. this part is the machine room. its supposed to be greasy dusty and oily. removing dirt from that part serve no purpose and is also risky. the dirt keeps whats need to be sealed, sealed from environment. waste of time and money. clean only passengers saloon and vehicles outside look.
