Product Details

Automotive diagnostic smoke machine. Use this smoke machine to test for leaks in automotive engine intake systems and evaporative recovery systems. Do you have a P0171 or P0174 fault code? The most common cause for these “system too lean” fault codes is a vacuum leak in the engine’s air intake system or crankcase gaskets. The smoke machine injects a smoke into the intake system, under a low pressure. Leaks are identified by the smoke leaking from gaskets, cracked boots, cracked manifolds or valve covers, etc.

The BAVauto smoke machine can be used to diagnose and identify vacuum leaks in the engine intake and crankcase systems as well as leaks in the fuel evaporative recovery system (fault codes for evaporative system leaks).

The BAVauto Smoke machine is self-contained and includes intake boot adapters, hose and port plugs. An air pressure source is not included and is required. The smoke machine is internally regulated and can be pressurized using a common shop compressor or tire inflator compressor.

Uses common baby oil (not supplied) to generate smoke. We recommend the Smoker Intake Adapter B8800012 for easy application of the smoke and pressure into common intake boots.

Bavarian Autosport served the needs of BMW and MINI enthusiasts from 1974-2019. In 2019, ECS Tuning acquired the Bavarian Autosport brand, commiting to continuing the tradition of excellence Bav Auto is known for. Over the years, Bav developed their own brand of parts, accessories and upgrades. A lot of these parts are engineered and built by OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers – companies who make original parts for BMW, MINI, and other European marques). Just as BMW and MINI do, we work with a variety of manufacturers in Europe, Asia and North America. In many cases we have sourced parts that are superior to Original Equipment.

A lot of time and resources have been put into developing and evaluating these products, as well as the companies who produce them. We stand behind every product we sell. If any product fails to meet our standards — or our customers' expectations — we won't sell it, and we're certainly not going to put the Bavarian Autosport name on it. In fact, we're so confident in the quality of these parts that we back every Bavarian Autosport brand part with a 2-year warranty.
