Just thought this was interesting what happened to an amg

I’ve recently “detailed” my engine bay, light mist of water followed by apc brushed in with a final mist of water to rinse off, blow dried with a sidekick and then dressed. HOWEVER after doing this I had major problems. My car was spluttering and cutting out, wouldn’t drive above 3k rpm and eventually cut out on the motorway and died. Car was under warranty luckily all the electrics had gone and was a 3 grand job, merc had to get parts from Germany. My car is an A45 AMG so it just shows you not all modern engines are water tight. Merc had my car over a week just got it back yesterday.

I’m sure I was just majorly unlucky but I’d never touch an engine bay again ��

I've seen those videos where they snow foam the engine and then wash it down with a hose and it's just something I would never do, due to how many sensors etc that are in the modern day engine bay.

I just clean the engine parts that can be seen with an old cloth and some QD.
