I've used this method many times and have never covered anything and haven't had any problems.

I do not know how many times I have seen people wash their engines with a garden hose and have problems afterwards. Problems like: My engine wont start! or The Check Engine Light is on!

Yes a looking like new engine is a beautiful thing.

Not being able to start your car is not!

Do a search on this site for CTScotts post reference having to clean up an alternator. Moisture can and will find its way in there and unless you dry it out can do damage. Yes I put a plastic bag on it. I also spend an hour drying the motor cabin with a combo of warm and compressed air. This because even a normal exterior wash gets water in there. I don't wash the engine bay but I will use steam in select areas if necessary.
