Steam Cleaning of your car's engine.

There are lots of debates about steam cleaning of an engine, as in whether it's necessary part of an engine maintenance or not. As an engineer and instructor I always answer it as the necessary but not the compulsory part of engine maintenance.
I therefore implore my clients to read and know the advantages and drawbacks of this:
  • Safety
Steam cleaning significantly reduces the incidence of accidents that engine fire brings about.
  • Longevity
It can extend the overall life of the car engine. A clean and well-maintained engine is safe from rusting and clogging which may affect and reduce the performance and longevity of an engine.
  • Early Detection
Through this process, you can identify the source of any type of fluid leaks. Most engine fires are attributed to unidentified leaks which early detection could have prevented. But how could you detect the leaks if mud and grime cover the engine?
  • Beauty
It can improve the engine’s appearance and increase its resale value. Some people believe that cleaning a car’s engine is an attempt to mask its defects. We think otherwise. A clean car engine sends this message: this car is well-maintained, loved and protected, so it will be beautiful and functional for a longer period of time.

Disadvantages of Steam Cleaning Engines

  • Electric Control Systems
Improperly done, steam cleaning can damage the electronic engine controls. This is why we highly recommend getting sufficient knowledge on how to perform engine steam cleaning.
  • Ignition System
A car’s ignition system is composed of ignition coils, cables and the spark plugs. All these components are sensitive to water. If these components get damaged during steam cleaning, a car’s functionality and longevity may be affected. Not to mention that you will need to spend money for replacing the system.
  • Air-Intake System
An automobile air intake system has three main parts: air filter, mass flow sensor, and throttle body. This system is generally resistant to steam cleaning. However, improper use of high-pressure steam can disconnect ductwork. If this happens, water can get to the engine thereby affecting its performance.

Steam cleaning a car’s engine has its own set of pros and cons. Among the pros are: safety, longevity, early detection and beauty. The downside is that it might affect the different systems that are essential to a car’s functionality and longevity. If you would like to have your car’s engine steam cleaned but have doubts regarding performing engine steam cleaning by yourself, it would be best to ask your professional detailer for help.
