GLO-GED : Gasoline Engine Dye 1 oz

Goodson Tools & Supplies

Order No. GLO-GED

Adding dye to inspect for leaks:
  1. Turn OFF the engine. Add the dye through the oil fill port. Use 1 ounce (30 ml) of dye for every 4 to 5 quarts (3.8 to 4.7 liters) of oil. If the oil is very dirty, you may need to add more dye to obtain good fluorescent response (additional dye will not harm the engine) or change oil before adding the dye.
  2. Run the engine for 5 to 10 minutes so the oil and dye will mix well. Use a UV lamp to inspect the dipstick or oil fill port and check for a bright fluorescent response. Add more dye if needed. A short road test is recommended to allow the dye to penetrate all leaks prior to inspection.
  3. Turn OFF the engine. Inspect possible leak areas of the engine with the UV lamp. All leaks will show with a bright yellow-green fluorescent glow. The glow will show up best under low light conditions. Use a high- intensity UV lamp for best results.

SAFETY: Wear approved safety glasses or goggles whenever using a UV lamp or servicing any motor vehicle. NOTE: It is NOT necessary to change the oil after adding the tracer dye. When used properly, Dye can safely remain in the system until the oil is changed.
