Make sure you cover the distributor cap. You can go to a self serve car wash, pick up a couple of cans of Gunk Engine Degreaser, some car washes have a setting for engine cleaner.

Why is speedo "sticky" after engine wash?

The washing process forced washing fluid into the speedometer cable or fitting. The cable may have to be replaced. Washing the engine often causes unexpected problems.

I know this is too late but, you should never pressure wash an engine without waterproofing all of your electrics. The pressure washer pushes water into places it isn't meant to go. You will need to find where the water has gone, and dry it out. You may be lucky and be able to save your ECU or electric start kit by drying it out properly.

Oil leak left& right side engine

Hello there
The best to start looking on your oil leaks is to take off the protection panel under the engine and see where is the oil comming from.Once you have the cover off (to take off you need philips screwdriver)
you should go yo car wash and clean the bottom of the engine.
Then go for a 20 min drive and look if you see anything.It could just be that you need service and your valve covers gaskets are leeking.
But first thing first-wash the engine and look.

let me know

Engine Wash

I would not recommend putting water on any part of the engine. Unless you know what your doing. Could cost big bucks.

Runs rough and smells of fuel after washing engine!

Don't "wash" the motor, like you wash the outside. Did you pressure wash it? God people are too freakin anal retentive and go screwing up their engines. Next time use engine cleaner and try not wet any wiring harnesses or anything electrical. You probably killed a sensor connection or something.

Engine noisy after full wash of the car specially at stating

Moisture by itself won't affect the sound of the engine. If you happened to spray water on the engine where it contacted the exhaust system, you may have a crack in the exhaust that needs to be attended to. If you did not wash the engine off, it may just be a coincidence that this happened after the wash job. Listen under the hood and on both sides of the car to see if you can find an exhaust leak.
