    Smoke to Trace a Vacuum Leak

    Anybody know who sells smoke to trace a vacuum leak- I've stopped at a couple of shops and no dice...

    I've had to boost the slope on my injectors to prevent a lean code so I'm hoping it's something simple...

    Do you need the whole machine? I've heard of this place http://www.vacutecstore.com/. A friend got something off ebay, but I can't recall what it was called. Check there.

    EDIT: Machines are about $100 on ebay for some of the vacutec and the refill cartridges are $70

    Try it the dangerous way first. Use either carb cleaner or propane to hunt for the leak. If the idle smooths out, or the rpms increase, you found the vacuum leak.
