Thanks, I won't be touching my engine with water then.

Yeah, it's risky. I'd only worry about active oil leaks getting on rubber components as it can weaken them like hoses and belts as well as the exhaust system as it could cause a fire from the heat. So, if it has an oil leak doing any of that, get it fixed and clean oil off those components.

don't do it, water messes up electronics AND a greasy engine actually doesn't rust or corrode as fast as a clean one. BUT, if you must, to go any car wash or detail shop and have them do it, cause they are pros (just make sure they have insurance first in case they mess up, i once saw guys do that on a Ferrari and the insurance company had to fork out 10 grand to fix it later.)
