    Enthusiast from January 2006 - can anyone help?

    I am hoping to read an article that appeared in the January 2006 copy of Enthusiast about using Cigar smoke to search for vacuum/ air leaks in the induction system.

    Can anyone help?

    regards

    Hi Jeff,
    I just looked through a hard copy of the January 2006 Newsletter - did not find anything related to using smoke for air/vacuum leak detection. Checked a couple of other issues before and after that date, nothing. (also checked 1/2016, nada)
    BTW, the 190 SL Group Newsletter became the "190 SL Enthusiast in March/April of 2013. Double check the issue you're looking for. I have copies of many past issues.

    If you don't smoke, try soap bubbles. Paint a soap and water solution on the suspect fittings and blow through the vacuum tube. If you see bubbles you have problems. It is a little messier than smoke, but the bubbles are easier to see.
