    Where did you hook up the smoke connector? to the purge line going to the engine intake manifold or to the purge line goin to back to the charcoal canister and gas tank?

    Manometer, you should use THC concentrates in your smoke machine.

    I went on Amazon and priced your new toy. $875.00?! Wow! I found a video on how to make your own for about $25 which is good for the home mechanic, but I realize your a professional and you demand the best. That's some collection of scan tools you have, it's like anything else their obsolete before you know it. BTW great video as usual.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bill luzius says:

    Where'd you get that evap valve dong depressor tool instead of the junk one that came with the hole in it

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Carson says:

    I seen the smoke at the right of the filler neck. I suspect mines bad too,so it's cool I seen this.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sergio Jimenez says:

    Even without a smoke machine you can tell that rusty pipe is falling apart 😂💨💨💨

    The oil is mineral oil if anyone is wondering.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JohnBoyWalton Beard says:

    A $700 Tool to find a Rusty Pipe……Maybe Baby Oil…..Train bringing Smoke Fluid!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sachi Kad says:

    Is it safe to use this smoke machine on Evap Leak ? I heard that since EVAP system is closed and it if smoke comes in contact with Gas vapors in evap system it may cause explosion, so always need to do outside garage in open just in case. I need to check my P0456 small evap leak, pls advise.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen says:

    is he using shop air, or do you have to use nitrogen?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars cujoedaman says:

    Pfft, that smoke machine is probably more American than that SIlverado 😛

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Winter says:

    They're probably using cheap baby (mineral) oil like all the homemade smokers.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Nazario says:

    Great video bro. Keep up the good work.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Hernandez says:

    I can see the smoke very well 👍

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Connor Bunch says:

    For anyone wondering, that machine costs $850

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Salonist Parler says:

    $5.00 fish pump, old coffee can tubing in, tubing out, ignite incense.turn on pump
    we have a smoke machine

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tyler c says:

    They want $800 for this, I can make one for less than $40, sure it will only make smoke but that's all most people need

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Ronci says:

    Does the system have to be closed to use a smoke machine?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rusty The Raver says:

    Good trick with the laser!!! i would not have thought of that!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars robert mccully says:

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jess Reyes says:

    Eric, if I may ask what was the estimate you gave your customer for the filler neck replacement? I have a car that I think needs the same repair and want an expert opinion on what I should are looking at. I also have a small evap leak. Unfortunately I don't have the $ for a Ready Smoke ($500) or a Autel Maxisys ($2,500). Thanks for your great videos!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 김진수 says:

    i love ur voice awsome~ 🙂

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Manny Castellanos says:

    So you do read the manual and who ever invented that easy intake is making lots of mula

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Vet says:

    Hi Eric love your show……. just when I think I know enough about an issue to take care of it my self,
    something else gets tossed in to the mix. that smoke machine, when back in the day when I was a kid, early 50_s. Lionel had smoke pills / pellets, today they have liquid, it comes
    in different fragrance's today. so if you like you can sweeten it up some. your smoke machine.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George H Gordy says:

    Block off cocks, gas-hole & suck on the hose… That's some pretty strong language for an auto repair video.. I was waiting for if it isn't leaking don't mess with it " but plug" it if it does… Lol

    The homemade ones seem better way better

    Smoke machines are a ripoff, just build one out of pvc.
