But did you know that a clean engine runs cooler, performs better, and can even help you spot potential issues before they become costly repairs? ️   So, when should you clean your car engine? Well, as a rule of thumb, an annual engine clean is a good idea. However, if you often drive in dusty conditions or if you spot oil or fluid leaks, it's time to roll up your sleeves and get cleaning! ️     Now, let's get to the 'how'.Here's a step-by-step guide to cleaning your car engine:   Safety First! Disconnect the battery, cover any exposed electrical components with plastic bags, and make sure the engine is cool before you start. Remove Loose Dirt: Use a blower or a brush to remove loose dirt and debris from the engine bay. ️ Apply Degreaser: Spray a good quality engine degreaser from the bottom up, avoiding belts and electrical components. Let it sit for a few minutes to break down the grime. ⏱️ Scrub and Rinse: Use a brush to scrub stubborn spots, then rinse from the top down with a gentle stream of water. Remember, we're not pressure washing here! Dry and Protect: Dry the engine bay using microfiber towels or a blower, then apply a protectant to prevent future dirt buildup and to give your engine that showroom shine! ✨️   Remember, if you're not comfortable cleaning your car engine yourself, the Polar Bees team is always here to help!
