Perform all applicable test plans for the faults stored (mechanical leakage, restric- tion or electrical failure of an induction system component). If the results of the tests are inconclusive, proceed to the following troubleshooting. Smoke testing the induction system is the most effective way to determine the integrity of the system. Inspect the charge air line (1) connections and the clamps. Check the tightness of the attachment screw (2). Check the crankcase ventilation system connection (3). Check the connection at the flexible coupler (4) on the air box. Remove the filtered air duct (5) for inspection.
