Car Engine Steam Cleaning Wilmington, NC

When you steam-clean your car or truck’s engine, it reduces the likelihood of an engine fire because you’re eliminating flammable fluids from the engine compartment, and a clean engine doesn’t heat up as quickly. It also makes it easier for you or your car mechanic to spot any fluid leaks, and then once corrected, it spruces up the appearance of your engine. This is why many claim that when you have your car engine steam-cleaned, you extend the useful life of the engine.

If you’ve ever seen oily marks underneath your vehicle ranging from a yellowish to black color or smelled a foul fume in and around your car, you might have an oil leak. Finding it can be difficult with a dirty engine compartment. Engine steam cleaning can make finding this problem easier. When you're considering auto detailing for your vehicle, don't forget about engine steam cleaning for a like-new clean.
