keeping engine clean

I've had someone tell me that if I want to pinpoint an oil leak I need to steam clean the engine first. He said that you can just go to those self service car wash places.

If I do spray my engine with one of those hi pressure nozzles, do I have to take some precautions first or is it pretty safe to just spray away?

I had a '84 Buick Regal and when I did it to that car, I had a real hard time getting the thing started after that. I'm afraid to do anything to mess up my Benz.
