Anybody try making a smoker for finding vacuum leaks with dry ice and water? Seems if you add dry ice to hot water, it will create smoke. If you place it in a jar with a lid, and a rubber hose stuck in the lid, the smoke should exit the jar and into a vacuum line on your car. Is this too simple to work?
If it don't have a big enough hole for the gas to escape basically you have just made a bomb........:eek::eek: Might want to rethink this one.
What about one of those cheap smoke machines party city sells for halloween. Wonder if that fog juice will hurt anything?
