Actually quite easy, something I do as I tend to hyper-clean (detail-ish) my cars. The are a number of products on the market that go some way to helping you clean out an engine bay. Not sure if you can get them in Turkey (my brother lives in Istanbul and always complains about how difficult it is to source things) but the engine cleaners made by Meguiars and AutoGlym are very good. You can normally just use the water from a hose with the cleaners but they do work better if coupled with a steam cleaner. I have a Karcher that I use around the house that works very well.
