Title: Finding a vacuum leak
Post by: cudabob496 on February 13, 2018 - 09:39:52 pm
Heard that using a propane bottle (not lit) is an easier
way to locate a vacuum leak, which I now have on my 98 ford Escort,
instead of spraying with carb cleaner?

I've heard that also.  Have not tried it.

Makes sense though.  And it won't eat any of the paint or rubber parts.

saw a guy do it on Youtube, seemed to work well.
Can locate the leak pretty quickly. Engine revs go up.

I think Cuda Hunter is keeping the guy with the snake in his skull a secret. I asked him weeks ago if it was a still shot from the movie "Snakes on a Plane." At about 30,000 feet hundreds of venomonous snakes are unleashed, causing violent mayhem as the vicious snakes attack nearly everyone on the plane. Very action-packed. I have the movie on DVD and will watched it again and see.

I figured it was a picture of him with his pet snake.
