Elllie the Elantra's engine bay was pretty dirty - 210k miles...
Did a very quick cleaning today...Not very good but loads better than it was for sure:

sprayed mildly with garden hose
sprayed Purple Power full strength everywhere
let it sit for about 5 minutes,
agitated SOME parts with a brush,
sprayed off again with garden hose
went for a quick 20 min drive
dried off with a rag
sprayed poor boys' trim/interior cleaner and 1z plastic cleaner (didn't have anything else)
wiped off residue - that's it.

BEFORE and AFTERs:

Very nice!

I used a Brillo pad on the intake manifold. It looked brand new after I did that.

Hey-Considering the mileage, the compartment wasn't all that bad, which is why it looks so good now after your tidy up.
