I've used a power washer on my Camry to clean the engine before I sold it. Just take it easy around alternator and fuse box. The engine is watertight, the air box is closed. Don't start the vehicle until dries.

I appreciate all the helpful replies from everyone here. The pressure washer I have seems to me to pack more of a punch than i'd want near my engine, so i'll probably just take the hose and go for high pressure. The bay isnt a huge huge mess, so just rinsing some mud out will be plenty to satisfy me for now

How did this work out for you? Got my engine quite a good bit muddy and dirty on the inside and I would really like to clean the engine bay before it gets serviced on Tuesday for a problem with the horn.

I chickened out on using the pressure washer, so I used a standard hose with the standard selectable nozzle on it, set to stream. That got most of the caked on mud, and for the parts that were easy to reach, I wiped down with a microfiber cloth and gave another rinse. Its not at all perfect, but it looks loads better.
