Why on s/o was it forbidden to wash the engine, asked this question to the manager


The engine washing is quite an acute topic for many car owners. Some are categorically against — “Do not bother the car to work!”, Others for cleanliness — “The mud fur coat does not allow the engine to cool!”. In fact, this is a stick about the two -edges. A clean engine is primarily aesthetics, it is beautiful, when clean, the car seems fresh, much more pleasant to check the oil level, pour the liquid into the washer tank. As for overheating, then first of all you need to monitor the state of radiators, and it is better to disassemble the “cassette” and rinse everyone every 3-4 years.

Personally, I am my engine, I like the pure engineering space. And as many experts say in the comments “Use the car for its intended purpose and enjoy”, so, I get more pleasure when I go in a clean car, even where I rarely look.

It is important to understand that it is necessary to wash the engine wisely, it is important to know certain features. At a minimum, before the procedure, it is worth looking for reports on the problems that car owners faced after washing with a specific engine. Here is an example, the state of the ignition coil the day after washing the engine. (According to the owner, he started up, he even drove home, but the next day problems began, very expensive problems, still an engine with six cylinders).

Self -service sinks are a clamping of reckless car owners who sincerely believe that the car washer should know no more than the cleaning lady in the five. Some rub a dirty car with a suede rag so that there are no divorces, others are washed with a brush. And now we go to the engine smoothly, not often, but I notice how some open the hood and, together with the body, fill the engine with active foam, and then wash off everything with water.

At the same time, employees of such sinks usually run out quickly when they notice this and ask to stop, referring to the ban. I decided to ask a question to the manager of the sink to find out what the ban is due to and why the s/o are forbidden to wash the engine.

Contrary to the opinion of many, the matter is not at all in the risk of engine breakdown, this is your engine, you wash it yourself, and when you call on the sink and paying for the equipment rental service, you agree with all the rules. (Among which there is a point that the organization does not bear any responsibility for the state of the LKP, chromium and everything else). Yes, and imagine if you could recover something from the sink for a broken engine, what prevents you from recovering from the sink for the failed electronics after washing the passenger compartment from the AVD?

By the way, another danger that can in wait for the car owner who decided to wash the engine on the s/o s/o s. The engine needs to be washed after it cools completely. The thing is that the exhaust system on modern cars with turbocharges and a catchers can be warmed up over 1000 degrees. The water from AVD is cold. Above, an example of how a person has a reception pipe after a person’s washing.
