Cleaning Motor

Can you safely pressure wash the 6.0? If so where do I need to be careful when I am cleaning it? Planning on a egr delete and want to clean it up a little before I start.

I do all the time just becareful around the wires usally disconnect everything and put it off to the side. Oil eater from napa does a good job on cleaning the intake out just leave it in there for a day and pressure wash after.

So you disconnect all the harnesses under the hood before you clean? Cant you just not hit them directly with the sprayer? I thought that the underhood connectors were all weatherpack type connectors and would be waterproof.
Just trying to clarify what you posted.

dont disconnect any wires. you are correct they are all weather tight.. Cover up the alternator, ficm, batteries, pcm, and main wiring harness connector mainfold that is below the pcm mounted on wheel well liner.. I use trash bags and works well... Once you do this go to town, i dont use a pressure washer, just simple green and water. Works great.
