Yes David. Thanks! What type/model of smoke generator do you have or recommend?

       The long version (longer anyway),

 You remove the air cleaner box. Connect the hose of the smoke generator to the hose from the oil fill cap. Turn on the smoke and hold the throttle open and the air sensor plate down till you see smoke. Now cap the air inlet to the mixture unit and pump the motor up with smoke. It will start coming out of the leaks. Big ones show up faster than small ones. If they are really big you have to stop pushing in smoke so you can still look for the smaller leaks. The smoker I have has a hand-held push button so you can turn it on and off easily while looking for leaks. Once you identify any leaks you fix them and retest to find smaller leaks. Removing and replacing the air cleaner takes more time than actually doing the smoke test. Without the benefit of a smoke generator I can tell you that you should probably just replace the injector seals to start with. EVERY car I tested had at least one leaky injector seal. A through visual check is also a good idea to
 catch any hoses not connected, missing caps, plugs, etc.
