    SMOKE CHECK starts from £65+vat

    Identifies leaks in pressure and vacuum system. We all know how vag cars breed vac leaks!

    Biggest common fault we see with running problems, lumpy idles, fueling adaption errors in over 60% instance are caused by something leaking in the vacuum or pressure pipes.

    With this equipment we can now fully test the system for leaks. UV dye residue to find the tough to see leaks.

    and exhaust leaks..
    its ace kit..
    UV tracer dye helps find a lot..

    Its also the correct fluid so leave no residue like on cheaper units.

    What vacuum pressure is your guage showing out of interest.I understand from from what i've read of this forum that its not unusual for it to be lower when engine cold/just started? On tickover from cold mine seems to be around -16 then rising to about -19/20 when warmed up.Does this all seem pretty normal/ok?
