The flashlight on this kit is inadequate to say the least. The box says that the flashlight is good to two feet or more, but when you read the fine print, it says it's only effective to twelve inches. You'll be crawling around in your engine bay in the dark before the glowing leak shows up. If it's available, get the version of the kit with a stronger light. You can buy the stronger light (Tracer Products TP8640CS) separately for $40+ and according to the fine print on the insert, it's effective to three feet (though the outside packaging claims that it's good to six). The leak will become apparent much more quickly without having to ferret the flashlight through the engine bay. Use the better light, which comes with one whole extra LED bulb, and you'll find the leak from the perimeter of the engine bay. To be honest, this company should just ditch the low-quality flashlight and make the one that actually WORKS their low model (there are other, much more expensive lights as well). The system works, but they cheaped out on the flashlight, intentionally I think, so that you'd be forced to spend an extra $40+ for a light that's worth maybe $10. A better option would be to buy the light, glasses and chemicals separately, so you'll get EXACTLY what you need without getting ripped off in the process.

I had a Zero Turn mower that was leaking hydraulic fluid empty every day but because the fluid was clear it was impossible to see where it was coming out from. One bottle of leak detector and 5 minutes of searching showed me a bright glowing vein of light where my leak was coming from! The $50 bucks I spent on this and the $.69 I spent on the new rubber seal saved me well over $1200 in shop repairs.

Used this kit to find a leak in my R-22 HVAC system. Found the leak in the indoor evaporator coil. After injecting the dye, make sure to run the system in heating mode to build increased pressure, which will help force the dye out.

I purchased this item to help in finding a leak in my AC system. The leak is a slow leak, so it hasn't been easy to locate as of 24 hours later, which isn't the problem of the actual equipment.

The reason for the 3 stars is that this system is awfully messy. You need to first prime the tube that connects the syringe to the ac low-side port. You stick a small straw into the syringe, draw up a small amount of dye, remove the straw, screw on the tube and then squeeze the dye into the tube. Well, when you remove the straw, the dye drains out of it all over...I wish I'd have left the straw in the bottle of dye. It mentioned leaving it in the bottle to prevent bubbles, but I assumed that was referring to sucking the dye into the syringe.

Next, when putting the dye into the a/c system, the vehicle is on, most likely with the fan running. the small amount of pressure from making the actual connection to the a/c system port, combined with the fan running, blew some of the dye onto the surrounding area. Cleanup is a PITA.

Now I know I've learned a bit from my first experience, so my second will be a bit better, but I'm not sure it can be completely without spillage. I was unable to completely cleanup the dye mess around the port...even with the included cleanup solution.

On the other hand, if all had gone well, when using the UV light in darkness, the UV dye is extremely bright, and I don't believe it could be missed.

This product is great for a "weekend warrior", however I do not recommend it for professional use. I was excited to receive this product as I had a few customer cars with oil leak concerns. Unfortunately, when I removed it from the packaging and attempted to use the UV light, I found it to be inoperative. I plan to return this product in exchange for a more professional grade product.

Didn't have chance to encounter an oil and coolant leak yet, even though filled oil and coolant with the dye therefore cannot estimate those features yet. Still UV light is pretty good and yellowish glasses is definitely a must to have. Smudges of the dye will glow brightly in UV even without glasses, but glasses increase color contrast dramatically - hopefully it will allow to see the smallest leaks.
I was told that it is better to have the dye in oil and coolant system all the time to be able to diagnoze instantly when leak will develop. I had couple of small leaks into spark-plug bays during cross-country trips which caused car to miss a spark and heavily misfire in the middle of nowhere - scary experience. I cured these leaks by adding additives into the oil on the road.
Now I don't have leaks but don't know which gasket was weak. I wish I had the dye in the system when leak developed so I can find the culprit. I bought extra set of dye (6 bottles in the pack) of the same manufacturer as in this package and adding dye during each oil change now. $6 extra during each oil change to diagnose and estimate $500-$1000 worth gasket job seems to me a small price to pay for 200,000 miles, 11-years old car.

Was able to detect the leak but changed my oil first. Instructions didn't say if that was required.

If you have a leaky AC system, this is the ticket. Everything you need is contained in this one box, and it works perfectly. The dye--only a tiny bit is required is placed into the system, (injection system included)---and then it circulates including to the "leak". You use the blacklight and glasses, and you can then see the dye very brightly as it bubbles out of the leak In my case it was coming out of the compressor cycle switch===and I would have not found that easily otherwise. this made it so obvious--I found it in seconds.
