Warm engine and degreaser wash off with pressure cleaner

wouldn't use CLR, isn't it acidic to react with calcium/lime?

While a little bit of heat can help release oil/grease etc, if you really need to wash engine when at running temp, i would suggest you leave it running.

Be aware, some degreasers/cleaners can stain paint work if left in contact for a while, good idea to wet gaurds, wiper cowl and under side of the bonnet, this will help dilute any posible splashover.

Export degreaser! Cheap as and works like a treat for the oily stuff. The mud comes off as you pressure wash the degreaser out :)

Agree with whoever said don't use the CLR that you mention. Would be very concerned about long term effects on some of the other items under the bonnet such as some plastics, rubbers and thin alluminium components etc.
