Engine Cleaning Question

Question

Hi everyone, just took delivery of a 2021 Ford Ranger Lariat. Love it!

 

I do like to occasionally clean my engine. The last vehicle I owned (a 2012 Xterra) handled a "light" spray of "do it yourself car wash" soap and rinse. I've noticed the Ranger has a LOT more exposed electrical components and connections than the Xterra. I'm sure they are all sealed because the engine will get wet / damp from normal driving conditions. Any opinions on washing modern engines?

 

Thanks in advance.
