It depends. Some garages offer an engine clean but all they do is blow out the dust with an air line , wipe down the visible components with a damp rag then spray the engine with a wet look to make it

Wont hurt electrical system. I have my engine cleaned at the dealer when I get service. Done all the time here in Thailand.

only smart reply here.

British cars in particular were renowned for it.

This is Thailand, at what car wash do you wash anything yourself?

Never WASH the Engine, except do you like to have elecrical problems! Use a dry Fabric to clean away dust and sand from the plasticcovers on the Block, Fusebox, Batterycover etc.

A lot of people here obviously disagree with you.

Please allow me to inform peeps. If you have the engine cleaned every time you have the car cleaned you will find it only needs a quick blast over to keep it like new. I have done just that from new never had a problem as it never gets dirty.

Couple of snaps of mine today that hasn't been touched for around 3 weeks so has a bit of dust on it. Not unexpected as I have done well over 1k km in that time.
