Diagnostic Smoke Check, PCV System
- 1 hr1 hour
- Olney Avenue
With a leak in the PCV system, your vehicle may end up with unmetered air making its way into the intake manifold. This may cause performance issues or you may find a diagnostic error code. To check for this issue, the smoke machine can be connected at the oil filter neck. If you pressurize the crankcase with smoke, you’ll quickly find any leaks throughout the system, whether they’re from hoses, connections, or even from the valve cover or oil pan gaskets.
