Should be able to just turn it off and try to avoid the disp pack.

Keep some WD40 around

I've used engine cleaner on mine before. I just covered the intake and the distributor cap. Worked pretty good.

Rule one.. make sure engine is cold... Shock coolig a hot engione with cold water cracks heads and blocks.

Rule Two.. Cover up electronics

Rule three.. preceed the power washing with a healthy dose of scrubbing bubbles... it does a world of good.

If your jeep starts missing after the wash just unscrew the cap, flip it over and spray the inside with WD-40, which actually stands for Water Displacement-40. Should get you back running again.
