I looked around but could not find a place where they wash the undercarriage, specifically underneath the engine. They only wash the top of the engine. To wash the undercarriage, they will need a ramp for the car to drive up.

Anyone knows where I can go in Subang Jaya or USJ? I had my engine repaired and now need to wash all the accumulated grease and oil below the engine. Thanks.

They used to do undercarriage washing with a water jet spray at the Shell station at USJ4 (next to Petronas)... maybe I have left USJ too long?

SS19 Shell car wash has it. I happen to wash mine there a year ago.

Well, the SS19 crew were quite professional. Took about half-hour to complete the wash. Had to use the chemical 3 times. The previous lady owner apparently had never cleaned the engine and so the shine can never be restored. Sigh. But at least it is clean.

Glad it worked out well...but to restore the shine....kena peluh (kerja) sikit lah :D

You need engine degreaser and moisturizer (wax) to bring back up the shine....its detailing, my friend...easy way out bring it to car restore shop (but no fun...try doing it your self...takes longer time, but puas) ;)
