Routine oil changes are designed to essentially clean the interior of your engine as you remove oil with particulates in it. If you want to clean the exterior of your engine, there are some helpful tips that Volvo Cars Annapolis has compiled for you.

  • First, you'll want to remove any debris that has accumulated from the engine, grill and hood. Compressed air is a really simple way to get this done.
  • Let your vehicle run for about 15 minutes in order to loosen up accumulated grease and oil. Even if you're using a degreaser, a warm engine will make this process much easier.
  • A water or citrus-based cleaner will be safety for your engine. Most products will ask you to apply a product and leave it on for a little bit.
  • Hose the engine off gently, and be sure to dry your engine.
