You really don't want to get you engine steam clean. The steam can get into the electrical connectors and cause short or bad connections. Also steam is hot so it can melt through some of the plastic and rubbers in the engine bay.

to the inexperienced, as with a steamer, just as risky with a hose but less effective. particluary for the seemingly infintie difficult to reach places.

I've been using my Karcher pressure on the engine bay about once, monthly, since I've had the car. Just spray everything with Simple Green then blast that bitch clean.
