Is it ok to lightly power wash the engine bay area?

No soap, just water.

Anything I want to be careful around?
Like the battery box, ect

Thanks in advanced!

Do it with engine running... Don't worry about pressure or detergents just keep that wand back 3 ft or so....

I personally don't use a pressure washer on my engine bay, mainly because I just don't need to but also because I'm a wimp.

However, provided you do it at a safe distance and don't focus pressure on one spot for too long, you will be fine.

Have a quick look at these videos of it being done, many times.
