Help Im all muddy!!!!! how to clean?

Today was my first outing on my new tires and they are a trillion times better than stock (I bought 31x10.5 Wrangler mtrs) the only problem is my dad is going to kill me when he sees all the mud in the engine bay. What the hell can I do to clean it? Im running out of time. I already powerwashed it but mud is still on the hoses and other tight places. I was a little worried about hitting the distributor and such but I think im OK. Any Ideas or thoughts would be appreciated, thanks, Brandon

I used to detail vehicles and what we did when we washed engine bays was pretty much just pressure wash anything (including distributor and other electronic stuff). It never hurt but everything we worked on was '94 or newer. What I did with my truck (I had a F*rd at the time) was take some plastic bags and twist ties/elastic bands to cover the distributor and other sensitive parts and went at it with the pressure washer. Started right up without a problem after. Don't be afraid to get close to hoses with the washer but don't get too close to the bags and other stuff that might not like the forceful blast. I cleaned some pretty dirty engine compartments in my time (LOTS of oil field trucks and the odd off-road machine). Sometimes it took some time to not blast stuff real close that I shouldn't have but it paid off in the end with a clean compartment. For some of the more delicate stuff, I needed to make it wet and use a scrub brush to get the dirt off. I don't know if that helps any but just thought I'd let you know how I did it.

go to an Autozone or any other similar store and buy some engine degreaser, that should make it look as good as new

id recomend getting SIMPLY GREEN automotive spray bottle at auto-zone and spray it on cold motor, let it sit for 10 min and pressure wash.
works great for me!
