    I put garbage bags covering the alternator, battery, intake, and the large wiring harness connector on the passenger side. Make sure the engine is cool spray Simple Green let sit, and set your hose to some where between mist and stream and you should be fine

    No need for all of the bags. Been there, done that since 1992-ish.

    An exposed conical air filter should get the bag treatment.

    In the summer I usually blow the dust out with compressed air first before a wash. I use my regular car soap for painted areas before I wax them. Both paste and spray wax work well and last a good while under the hood. Plus spray wax can get in the tight area. I save the engine cleaning itself for later in life.
