I was nearly in an accident and long story short a bunch of water spilled right over the engine compartment cover. And some coffee had spilled over the passengers side floor. What’s the best way to clean this up and will it cause any damage to the engine? It didn’t completely go through the cover but I’m paranoid.

If it's a lot of water, you might want to take out your seats, turn over the front part of the carpet and sponge/remove the water. There are a few modules under carpet underneath the seats. Remember to disconnect your battery before removing your seats and seat wiring underneath. Good luck!

I was transporting a box of 16 frozen chickens for a bit over an hour. Reached home and found the ice had thawed (hot rear floor) and of course, there was a hole in the plastic liner in the box...

Short of submerging the car, the engine shouldn’t care about a bit of water. It gets plenty of road spray on rainy days. I just recently cleaned mine with some engine degreaser and a hose to wash it off. No problems. May even run a bit cooler. If nothing else, it looks cleaner.

I think it's resolve brand, makes a carpet cleaning foam, has a big plastic brush on the end of a spraycan, check the pet cleaning/carpet section at the store. Anyways, i'd use that on the coffee, and the sun to dry out the water.
