About this deal

However, I think I actually contaminated the test fluid because after thermostat opened there was quite strong upward movement of coolant. BT-1 BASIC Tester is the simplest and cheapest combustion leak tester on the market but still a quit.

Pour test fluid from bottle into test instrument, through either opening in top cap, or remove top cap if more convenient, to the "fill to here" level line. Combustion Leak Detector - Blown Gasket Diagnostic Tool - Head Gasket TesterOverview: Diagnose blown gaskets, cracked blocks and cylinder heads on both petrol and diesel vehicles. Now I am wondering if such upward movement of coolant is expected for BMW X3 or if it is sure indication of a blown head gasket? Once fitted to the running engine's coolant filler neck, the rubber bulb is used to suck the gasses that collect in the top of the filler bottle through the fluid in the tester.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

With the included adapter, you can use the cylinder head leak tester for models from numerous vehicle manufacturers, for example for Mercedes-Benz, GM (Buick) and Jeep as well as for Peugeot, Subaru, GM (Nova, Spectrum and Sprint), Nissan, Mazda, Toyota , Infiniti, Geo, Isuzu and Ford. If fluid turns YELLOW (in diesel engines, fluid maybe turn green-yellow), a combustion leak is present.Read more about the condition New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging is applicable). For those who require a more sensitive fluid for checking diesel engines use L7573 indicator fluid, which changes from red to yellow in the presence of combustion gases. Take necessary precautions such as securely setting hand brake, firmly blocking all four wheels, and positioning shift lever with tape or other restraints to assure it will not move. If there are combustion gases, the colour of the test fluid in the upper chamber turns yellow or green, it means combustion gas (CO2) leak into the coolant. Do I need to run the car without radiator (or reservoir) cap and wait until the engine gets hot enough so that the thermostat opens, because, otherwise, the thermostat may prevent combustion gases from entering the cooling system?

Although to me that mean exhaust gas emissions, and I don't see how you would detect a blown head gasket from exhaust emissions. The first kit I got the liquid was contaminated and already green, but I was able to sent it back and get a good kit that worked like a charm. My garage missed the problem in my MG despite doing this test (and bizzarely still stand by this method, despite me having proven them wrong. This tool is designed to extract the front oil seal safely and efficiently without causing damage to the seal or the crankshaft.

V6 CDI engines is a specialized tool designed to remove and install the viscous clutch in the cooling fan assembly.

surely a comp test with a gas probe in the coolant combined with an analysis of the oil and checks for sudden water / oil loss would be the way to go to check an HG? This 9-piece piston ring service tool set simplifies engine maintenance, featuring 3 piston compressors, a ring expander, groove cleaner, and a master kit. Added fluid to the tube as directed and popped this into the radiator header tank, within 2 minutes this great little kit had confirmed my worst fears. The tester was created to eliminate suspected damage to the head gasket and the head itself in internal combustion vehicles with petrol, diesel and LPG engines cooled by liquid.The leak tester uses a test liquid (not included) that changes color when there is CO2 in the cooling water. Start the engine (preferably when it is warm), increase the speed to obtain a higher combustion pressure. Also, thanks to the rubber bung, the tester fits a wider range of machines with combustion engines, cars, trucks, lorries, tractors, generators etc. Problem is you have water > oil and vice versa, and then cylinder to oil exclusive, and/or cylinder to water exclusive, or a combination of all three.
