The article discusses ways on how to conduct leak test on various automobile parts. According to Jacques E. Hoffman, president of InterTech Development Co., transmission castings are tested for leak using a mass flow instrument. Chuck Wilkinson, corporate marketing director of VIC Leak Detection, states that a helium leak detector may be used to test a heater core. Hoffman also suggests the use of a mass flow system and automated parts handling in testing fuel injectors.
