the last time I did a wash, I ended up paying 240bucks to get 3 electrical terminals replaced. There was nothing wrong after the wash. The car just keeps over heating. Had it check and fix for 240. I would cover up anything that is electrical if I were you.

I was originally going to just dump some water on my engine but stuff like that above scared me out of it. Basically I used a lot of rags, some water (to moisten the rags), a few toothbrushes, and then some bronze/carbon brushes to scrape the rust and corrosion off the metal parts. I've working on it the last few weekends and it looks pretty nice now. :D

mmm

go find a hot water pressure washer, spray some degreaser on, spray the fucker and be done with it, just use your common sense, you are not flooding it, and no valve cover and distributor, bag your air filter,etc.... also let the motor and everthing cool off first...
also don't turn the pressure all the way up...it will chip you paint if you don't know what you doing,....
try not to use a hose, it seems like it take too much water that way, steam work the best...
