Default Engine Bay Washing

Hello All,

So i was wondering what is the best way to wash out the engine bay of a Jeep? i have done it twice: turned off engine and covered up intake, any electrical components i could rap in tin foil easily. Then grabbed a garden hose with a its spray nozzle and rinsed it out. Then sprayed degreaser around and let it sit. I folded the instructions on the side. Rinsed and then started up the Lj, after praying i didn't mess up somewhere. So far no issues. But i want to know is there any tips or tricks to this? Thinking there could be many different ways to skin this cat. I just would like some more advise and guidance.

Thanks!

I haven't done this very often, but I've never had any issues and my 98 Cherokee has a distributor. I would do it to a cold engine bay though. I've been told it doesn't matter but I don't like putting cold water on hot stuff.

Using pressure washer is fine as long as you don't point it directly on sensitive parts and electricals.
