Testing for hydrocarbons?
Posted 15 December 2009 - 12:17 PM
I've got a pretty complete shop and I do quite a bit of car work on the side. Something I do not have, nor do I know the exact direction I want to go with, is something to check for hydrocarbons in the coolant. Or maybe check in the exhaust?
And suggestions? Should I get a 4 gas analyzer? Or something to check the coolant for contaminants?
Both general tool suggestions as well as specific brands or links would be appreciated.

But seriously - northern tool has this guy:
I doubt it's that accurate and I'm not sure I would trust it for tuning, etc, but if you just want a pass/fail on HC's from the radiator I bet it would do that job alright.
For tuning, I have a wideband O2 sensor as it can remain on the vehicle when driving under various load conditions. They are also around $300 for the entry level stuff.
