In Reply to: Help translating German to English posted by Bob on January 10, 2000 at 12:01:47:

: Anyone out there whose German is good enough to translate the below instructions on a can of Liqui Moly Motor-Lecksucher (intake air leak tester). Any help would be appreciated. I don't want to use the product incorrectly.
: Anwendung: Teile des Ansaugsystems (nur bei Leerlaufdrehzahl) systematisch mit Motor-Lecksucher bespruhen. An den undichten Stellen wird der Motor-Lecksucher durch den vorhandenen Unterdruch angesaugt und mit Kraftstoff/Luft-Gernisch im Brennraum verbrannt. Sobald die Motordrehzahl absackt, ist die undichte Stelle lokalisiert. Bie angeschlossenen Abgas-MeBgeraten (mit und ohne Kat)steigen durch das Absinken der Motordrehzahl die Schadstoffe HC und CO kurzzeitig stark an. Behalter steht unter Druck. Vor Sonnenbestrahlung und Temperaturen uber 50C schutzen. Auch nach Gebrauch nicht gewaltsam offnen oder verbrennen. Nicht gegen Flamme oder auf gluhende Gegenstande spruhen. Brennbar. Bei Gebrauch auf gute Beluftung achten. Bildung explosionsfahiger Gemische moglich.

: AND IN ENGLISH, MANY THANKS FOR ANY HELP.

Pasting from babelfish:

Application: Sections of the air intake system (only with idling speed) systematically with engine Lecksucher bespruhen. In the leaky places the engine Lecksucher is sucked in by the available Unterdruch and burned with Kraftstoff/Luft Gernisch in the combustion chamber. As soon as the engine speed sags, the leaky place is localized. Bie attached exhaust gas MeBgeraten (with and without Kat)steigen by dropping the engine speed the pollutants HC and CO briefly strongly on. Behalter is at printing. Schutzen before exposure to the sun and temperatures of uber 50C. Also after use not by force offnen or burn. Do not spruhen against flame or on gluhende article. Inflammable. With use to good Beluftung pay attention. Education of explosionsfahiger mixtures moglich.

Pretty clear huh?

Basically it seems to me this does the same job I do with ether starting fluid. Spray around the intake system, when you hit a leak the vacuum pulls in the starting fluid and the engine stumbles.
