    To be on the safe side i would try and tape up or bag up any electrical connections before hand.

    I suppose any decent car valet company should be able to give you a definate answer tho?

    Pressure washed every cars engine ive ever owned and never had a issue. Ok back in the good old days you got water down the spark plugs and in the rotor cap but all quick and easy fixes. All cars are designed to take a soaking from driving through a huge puddle and as long as you don't go pointing a pressure washer down the air intake pipe or uncover the fuse box and blast that directly you will be fine. If your doing it yourself the best de greaser ive used is Bilt Hamber Surfex HD.
