Re: how do you wash a diesel engine
[ QUOTE ]
Start with a cold engine. Cover power steering filler neck with plastic bag. Cover alternator with bag. Spray with Simple Green, let sit for a few minutes and wash with LOW pressure water. If possible, let it sit in the sun to dry off. Remove bags and you're done.

This is the exact way I do mine and never had a problem. Get some large rubber bands to hold the grocery sacks on over the PS and alternator. I try and position the truck so the sun is shinning directly on the engine, so after the wash, it has a good chace to dry off before I start it up. It has never failed to start after the engine wash. Simple Green rocks.
