I've never had any electrical problems caused by water.

I agree here...The GUNK is awesome...but it makes your car stink for 2 days!
But its well worth it...all the old oil and crud washes right off....Sometimes a double treatment is necessary for neglected motors...

I agree with the gunk. I spray my engine down every time i wash my car and that is every 2 days. The only thing that i would cover up is the TPS. i have many porblem with them getting wet and messing up the TPS voltage.
