Engine Cleanup
So im thinking of taking a visit under my Hood, Im not all that good with engine work, so i just want it to look good.

I am going to be painting stuff with High Temp Gloss Paint
Colors of Choice - White & Red

Does anyone know where i can located all the hoses needed. and i already know where i can get the paint. also needed, is what things under the Hood should i refill or empty (oil and such) I know i will have to get a oil change, but any thing else i am totally new too.

i would highly appreciate it if anyone could help.
again i am not the smartest engine person around

You shouldn't have to remove any hoses. Just the plastics right? Paint won't stick to the rubber hoses.
