  • A clean engine is a happy engine. You do such incredibly detailed cleaning that I was a little surprised that you didn't remove the Ford engine cover. It's just held on with two push pins. Quick question about the leaf blower ... I've heard some detailers prefer electric leaf blowers due to a concern of a gas blower spitting some oil/gas mixture. Your thoughts?

  • I need this video and any tips. My dad has given me an old car that a family had but didnt look after. Im slowly working on the inside to get it clean and hopefully smelling better. Trying to learn how to look after the outside as well. The paint layers are peeling badly, i can see the clear shiny coat over the maroon paint layers. Probably needs a whole new paint but until i can do that i want to stop it getting any worse.

  • AFTER is excellent *wow* So many people out there think the "Engine BAY" is probably a good place to swim. And there are a lot of people don't open the hood of their car for a lifetime. This vid shows an impressive way what is under the hood and how it CAN looks like. Crazy but this hidden place of a car made out what an Automotive is. Crazy, isn't it?! 😉 We should pay more attention to it 🤔 Another 'simply the best' video of TDG 👍👍👍

  • Did the engine on my 01 Camry a few months ago. Basically applied a good amount of degreaser, scrubbed and pressure washed it. I used compress air to dry it and get all the water out but as someone who cleans engines every day (typically on newer cars) you should be careful with the oldies

  • I’m surprised that you did not mention anything about the car engine temperature and doing this on a car that has been sitting a while. It’s much safer to work on a cold or cooler engine as oppose to a engine that’s just been driven. Would you agree? Some older cars do not have a block cover and someone can really damage their engine if it were still hot.

    • @The Detail Geek 2 that's why im saying to use a preassure washer from a far enough distance that way its mostly mist and not a huge stream of water. Love your chanel btw! Im not trying to argue, but to learn and perfect what I know.

  • There's another way to clean your engine: just remove it from the car.... You are a professional. You have material to do the cleaning presented in the video. But for "ordinary" people, use a blower to dry the engine ?! It is a reality that we do not have in Brazil, for example ....
