no. cover all components like alternator and spark plugs with bags and seal them. basically all elec components. pressure clean the engine. then start engine up. oh, dont forget to plug the airfilter up.and remove after.:)

Make sure you run the engine and drive it about a bit after washing to help get any water form the clutch and brakes etc. to prevent them sticking when parked for a while!
