I have washed everything also. I just leave my vehicles running while I wash them. If you go to the a auto parts store there is a product called cd2, I think that is the name. It shines everything up after you let the engine dry spray it on and it looks like new. It is an engine detailer.

You can wahs everything that could get wet if you were driving in the rain, which is pretty much everything... The key is that if any water gets anywhere it shouldn't but could (i.e. electrical), you need to let it dry, and that's about it... Most modern vehicles are desinged that water is not a concern, and short of submerging the truck in a lake, water will not easily get into the electrical connectors and such.

So, if it gets really dirty, you can "steam" clean it, but having seen some cars get water into places difficult to imagine when being pressure washed, I'd advise to stick to low pressure washing and engine detail products myself.

yea, just do not hit the brake or gas pedals including the belts. but i shine everything under my hood including the hoses, fan shroud, battery, brake booster, power steering fluid, air intake, air intake resonator, wheel wells, i wash the water stains off of the oil pans and dry them, wash all the dirt off of the engine. i pretty much do everything under the hood.
