Swissvax Engine


We Say

Swissvax Engine is a concentrated cleaning agent from Swissvax that offers an excellent level of cleaning performance, yet does not rely on strong chemicals to achieve this. This makes it ideal for regular use on prestige and performance cars, as it is guaranteed not to stain or otherwise damage delicate plastic and rubber parts or sensitive electrical components. Furthermore, Swissvax Engine really does deliver in terms of ease of use; its thin consistency allows it to be applied quickly and worked into very tight nooks and crannies with ease, while it also rinses freely and easily to leave all engine bay surfaces streak- and spot-free. In short, Swissvax Engine is an excellent choice of product for safe and effective engine bay cleaning, and does away with the need to use aggressive degreasing solutions.

Key Features

Agitation RequiredYes(See How To Use)
Cleaning Strength8/10(Compared To Others)
DilutableUp To 2:1(Water:Product)


Swissvax Engine is an advanced detergent-based engine cleaning concentrate enriched with citrus oils, and safely and effectively breaks the bond between grease and grime and underlying engine bay surfaces. For routine cleaning, a dilution ratio of 2:1 (water:product) is often sufficient (in which case up to 750 ml of engine cleaner can be made up per 250 ml bottle purchased), but this can be reduced to 1:1 for tackling very heavily soiled engine bays. Swissvax Engine is best diluted to the correct strength for the task in hand using a Swissvax Mixing Bottle, which will also facilitate precise, effortless application to engine surfaces via its atomising spray head. Highly effective yet safe for all under bonnet surfaces, Swissvax Engine is suitable for the gentle cleaning of engines both old and new.

How To Use

Swissvax Engine is a concentrated detergent, and should thus be diluted to an appropriate strength in a Swissvax Mixing Bottle before use. For normal cleaning, a dilution ratio of 2:1 (water:product) is often sufficient, but this can be reduced to 1:1 for tackling really old neglected surfaces. In all cases, an appropriately diluted solution should be sprayed on directly and then agitated thoroughly using a Swissvax Detail Brush. This will produce a rich foaming lather, which will quickly discolour as dirt and grime is progressively released. Accordingly, it is sensible to rinse out your brush regularly during this process, otherwise there is risk of marring sensitive surfaces. The lather should then be rinsed away thoroughly with an open ended hose and the engine dried fully before any protective products are applied.
