It’s an old phrase from a bygone era and when it applies to your car’s engine it is always an antiquated pronouncement. What is a smoke leak test for your vehicle? Leaks can present troubles for vehicle owners. Some leaks can be gas or air leaks. Unmeasured air flow through your engine throws off the fuel to air ratio. This can lead to poor engine performance.
A smoke leak test is a series of tests that will provide information on possible leaks present under the hood of your car in the vacuum systems. The vacuum system will be tested using a smoke leak test. This test can determine if any piping in the system of your engine has a leak. A vacuum system controls the airflow in and out of the engine of your car.
