Open the hood at the quarter car wash and spray away. I've been washing the engine compartment of my cars like this for 40+ years with no problems.

Not saying I haven't done it... carefully... but it's surely not something I would recommend on an internet chat room. Type something like 'pressure washed engine won't start' into google for some good reads....

ONe would hope folks have enough common sense to know what to spray and what not to spray in an engine compartment...if not, they'll presumably learn soon enough.

I spray it all. Have been for years. If a problem arises (it hasn't yet) then you'd better get it fixed before you drive through a big puddle.:roll:

Driving in the rain splashes water all over your engine compartment (especially on an Element) so things in there had better be water repellent.

Splashing water from under is substantially different from a couple thousand PSI coming from the top. To each his or her own of course.
