Automotive diagnostic smoke machine. Use this smoke machine to test for leaks in automotive engine intake systems and evaporative recovery systems. Do you have a P0171 or P0174 fault code? The most common cause for these “system too lean” fault codes is a vacuum leak in the engine’s air intake system or crankcase gaskets. The smoke machine injects a smoke into the intake system, under a low pressure. Leaks are identified by the smoke leaking from gaskets, cracked boots, cracked manifolds or valve covers, etc.
The BAVauto smoke machine can be used to diagnose and identify vacuum leaks in the engine intake and crankcase systems as well as leaks in the fuel evaporative recovery system (fault codes for evaporative system leaks).
The BAVauto Smoke machine is self-contained and includes intake boot adapters, hose and port plugs. An air pressure source is not included and is required. The smoke machine is internally regulated and can be pressurized using a common shop compressor or tire inflator compressor.
Uses common baby oil ( not supplied ) to generate smoke.
We recommend the Smoker Intake Adapter B8800012 for easy application of the smoke and pressure into common intake boots.
Bavarian Autosport has been serving the needs of BMW enthusiasts since 1974 and MINI enthusiasts since 2002. Over the years, we have developed our own brand of parts, accessories and upgrades. A lot of these parts are engineered and built by Original Equipment Manufacturers (companies who make original parts for BMW, MINI, and other European marques). In many cases we have sourced parts that are superior to Original Equipment. And just as BMW and MINI do, we work with a variety of manufacturers and subcontractors in Europe, Asia and North America.
We have put a lot of time and resources into developing and evaluating these products, as well as the companies who produce them. We stand behind every product we sell with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If any product fails to meet our standards -- or our customers' expectations -- we won't sell it, and we're certainly not going to put our name on it. In fact, we're so confident in the quality of these parts that we back every Bavarian Autosport brand part with a minimum two-year warranty.
Everything we sell comes with a minimum 12-month warranty and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
