Hi

I understand how to do a compression test thanks.

But for the Renault F9Q on the Suzuki GV, access to the glow plugs won't allow for a straight adapter longer than the glow lug, but only allows for flexible hose attached adapter (390psi) capable. I'm having serious trouble finding a hose attached adapter with 22mm of thread free and M10-1 thread, attached to a hose.

Do you know of any suppliers for such a specific adapter?

Cheers,
Alex

Hi,

I did a search and can't seem to find one that specifically says it will work. Any time I have these issues, I call a dealer and ask them what they use and if the parts department will sell them.

If you can, I would just speak with a technician and see where they bought one because they clearly it need to perform this function.

Sorry I don't have more detail for you. Please let me know if I can assist in any other ways. Thanks

That is always the down fall. When they are one of the only sources for it, it is not cheap. This is part of the reason that dealers, in general, are more expensive then other shops. Because they have to invest in all these types of tools that others just don't have. Clearly it may be better to have them do the diagnosis then by the tool in this case.
