Default How to clean under the hood?

Hi,
I see a lot of sticky oily black dirt stuck on various parts of the
outer of the engine and in general under the hood.
Do you guys know I can clean this stuff?

I use an all purpose cleaner, like Castrol, mixed 50/50 and leave the
engine running.

Spray it on, rinse it off after 3-5 minutes. If it doesn't work, spray
again, brush it and rinse.

Don't get into the air intake!

Gunk engine degreaser, pressure washer (used to be 25 cent DIY car wash with
wands) or steam clean. PROTECT all electronic pieces with plastic and
aluminum foil or it will be an expensive wash!
