Question Engine Room/Compartment Paint

The engine (10-HP Diesel) is out of the boat getting serviced. I was going to use this opportunity to paint all or some parts of the engine compartment (not the engine). I have not been able to find any documentation on what kind of paint is suitable for this. There are three main areas:
  1. the bilge under the engine
  2. the plywood & MDF side panels
  3. the ceiling, which seems to be the rough underside of the cockpit footwell.
Is there one paint that will work for all or do I need 2/3 kinds of paint? I am worried just picking some paint and then finding out it doesn;t like the heat.

Thanks for the help.
