I've done it more than 10 times - engine running with no ill effects...
My procedure: Get engine warm, pull into car wash and shut engine off.
spray engine with engine cleaner (use whole can). Start car and rinse
off engine. I suppose covering the distributor with plastic would be
a good idea if you're luck is used up for the month...year...
Try and keep the spray stuff off the paint though.
