I was admiring the majesty of the mighty 1.6 under the hood of my Fiesta today and noticed all of the salt spray in the engine bay. This got me thinking, what are you all doing to keep your Fiestas clean this winter? Wisconsin winters are brutal!

The thing that bothers me the most about it all, is the constant horrible noise that the salt makes when it's hitting my rocker panels. It makes me cringe

Wish there was a engine bay cover underneath to help keep that crap out.

Wrap any electrical connections (like the battery terminals) in a plastic bag and tape in place, and liberally spray the engine bay with Simple Green. Let sit for about 5 min, hit any excessively greasy/dirty areas with a toothbrush, then with your hose sprayer on the shower setting rinse. Do not use a lot of water pressure.

If you want it to really sparkle, hit the engine bay with armor all after it dries, but that will draw more dust, so I sorta recommend against it, but it does look nice while it's still clean.

I can attest to using "Shower mode" on the rinse water as I learned power washing the ATV's off after a weekend of mudding.. Blew the stickers right off on the final rinse LOL I can imagine how that would drive the water into the connections and start a problem for later on ... Good tip
