How to Wash BMW X3 E83 Engine Pressure and Engine Compartment

Today I am going to wash the BMW X3 E83 Engine Pressure. I got a little bit of oil in the engine compartment, I also just replaced the evaporator tank, it leaks some radiator fluid in the engine compartment. I changed my oil, I didn’t change the crush washer on the drain bolt and actually, some oil was just very slowly dripping from my drain bolt there and I had the cover on and oil got in. I take off the bottom cover, put everything back on, wanted to get my harbor freight tools pressure washer to give it a good rinse.

When you’re using the pressure washer on, there are lots of delicate hoses and electrical fixtures and break it and do an electrical connection. You can kind of see here you know the first rinse clean things up pretty well. But I wanted to clean up all that oil because oil can shorten the life of rubber and  I haven’t changed that lower radiator hose. I did change the upper radiator hose when I did the expansion tank, but I’m gonna try to get more mileage out of that lower radiator hose.
