Engine Detailing is a tricky thing to do right.  Not only do you need to know where to clean with the water and cleaner, but more importantly you need to know where NOT to clean.  Most modern engines are fairly straight forward to clean.  The older engines (pre-2000 and even more so with motors even older than that) are temperamental, particularly older jaguars, lamborghini's, ferrari's, and all cars prior to 1990 and therefore require more attention and time.  For this reason, some engine details are relatively inexpensive and some can get quite pricey.

A typical engine detail is for cars that need an engine bay cleaning for the cruise night or local car show to show off your baby.  Concourse engine details for competitive shows can turn into multiple days of work.  Most engine details also require at least a wash after we are done as a result of the cleaning process.
