Start Guide


A5 Smoke Diagnostic Leak Detector Structure diagram

Prepare the Unit

  1. Mount the Power Cords to the Power Inlets(A). Note: Red plug to red socket and black plug to black socket. 
  2. Mount the Smoke Tube to the Smoke Outlet(B) , and lock it with the quick clamp. Note: Use the Velcro Strap( C) to collect the Power Cords and the Smoke Tube before storage.
  3. Open the Oil Filler Port(E),fill smoke oil into the reservoir, note the Oil Level Indication Window(D), make sure the oil level do NOT exceed the Max line(middle of the window). Ifthe smoke oil is overfilled, turn the unit upside down to drain some oil out.
  4. Now the unit is ready to use. Note: Pay attention to the Oil Level Indication Window(D) before use. If the oil level is close to the bottom, the unit will need a refill.

Test Run

  1. For EVAP/TURBO Ext. models, mount the Shop Air  Connector to the Shop Air Inlet Port(F), the unit will start generating air pressure.
    For EVAP/TURBO models, connect 12V vehicle battery with the clamps on the Power Cords. The Power status LED (H) will be ON and the unit will start generating air pressure. 
    Note: red clamp to positive(+), and black clamp to negative(-).
  2. Turn the Flow Dial(J) to max, the Flow Gauge(K) will indicate the flow rate.
  3. Block off the smoke nozzle on the Smoke Tube with finger tip, the Pressure Gauge(L) will indicate the real time output pressure. 
    Note: If the pressure is out of range, take off the cover at the Pressure Adjustment Port(M), then use a cross screwdriver to adjust the output pressure.
  4. Press Start/Stop Button(G), the Operation Status LED (I) will be ON. The unit will start producing smoke and stop automatically when a 5 minutes working cycle is finished. To stop the unit manually, simply press the Start/Stop button(G) within any working cycle.
Method of connection for A5 smoke diagnostic leak detector

Generic Operation

  1. Turn OFF the ignition of the vehicle. LEAK TEST OF VEHICLE SYSTEMS REQUIRE THE ENGINE TO BE OFF.
  2. Unmount the Air Filter, and the Throttle connections.
  3. Clean the opening and avoid sharp objects before put the adaptor in.
  4. Put the Intake Adaptor Cone(or the Universal Intake Adaptor) into the opening.
  5. Connect the unit with shop air supply.(Ext. models ONLY)
  6. Connect Power Cords to 12V vehicle battery. For best performance, the vehicle battery shall be fully charged. Do NOT use a DC12V switch power supply.
  7. Now the unit shall generates pressurized air flow.
  8. Turn the Flow Dial to max, then introduce the smoke nozzle into the system via the Intake Adaptor Cone(or the Universal Intake Adaptor).
  9. Wait for 30 seconds for the system to pressurized.
  10. Observe the Flow Meter and the Pressure Gauge for leak status.
  11. Leak Status Analysis
  12. If there’s leak in the system, press the Start/Stop Button, the unit will start generating smoke for an auto-stop 5 minutes working cycle.
  13. Pull off the smoke nozzle, and plug it back again when there’s obvious smoke coming out of the smoke nozzle.
  14. The system will be ready for leak check in 2 minutes. Use a bright light torch or working lamp to assist.
  15.  After leak test, collect the Power Cords and Smoke Tube with the Velcro Strap, clean the Intake Adaptor Cone(or the Universal Intake Adaptor) before storage.

Note:

  1. Cap Stoppers could be used to block off various opening, if test on partial of the whole system is required.
  2. Cap Stoppers also could be used to block off the intake, and smoke nozzle connect to the system via other opening available.
  3. Smoke method can NOT be used on testing leak of oil-sensitive parts, eg. lamp housing.
  4. ONLY 12V vehicle battery are allowed to be used as power supply for the machine.

Procedure

  1. Locate EVAP Access Port(Green cap in engine compartment)
  2. Remove the Schrader Valve, by using the Schrader Value Tool. Note: The valve is left-hand thread.
  3. Mount the EVAP Service Port Adaptor.
  4. Connect the smoke nozzle to the EVAP Service Port Adaptor, introduce pressurized air into the system, turn the Flow Dial to max, check the status of Pressure Gauge and Flow Meter to confirm if there is a leak.
  5. If there’s leak in the system, press the Start/Stop Button, the unit will start generating smoke for an auto-stop 5 minutes working cycle.
  6. Pull off the smoke nozzle, and plug it back again when there’s obvious smoke coming out of the smoke nozzle.
  7. In 2 minutes, the system will be ready for leak check. Use a bright light torch or working lamp to assist.
  8. After leak test, collect the Power Cords and Smoke Tube with the Velcro Strap, clean the Intake Adaptor Cone(or the Universal Intake Adaptor) before storage.

Instruction on Universal Intake Adaptor

Universal Intake Adaptor This parts comes with TURBO models ONLY.
  1. Clean the inner wall of the intake opening while the Air Filter, and the Throttle connections are removed, so as not to scratch the adapter.
  2. Close the Pressure Relief Valve(A) next to the Hand Pump(B).
  3. Put the Rubber Component(C) into the intake opening.
  4. Inflate the Rubber Component(C) by pressing the Hand Pump(B) till the intake opening is tightly sealed.
  5. Now the system is ready to test, introduce air/smoke into the system by plug the smoke nozzle into the Tube Opening(D) .
  6. After test,  pull off the smoke nozzle, release the inflated air by open the Pressure Release Valve(A) next to the Hand Pump(B).
  7. Clean the adapter for storage, avoid contact with corrosive liquids.
