    best way .. depends on opinions i guess .. some use sniffers, pressurize with nitro, dyes .. etc.... really depends .. for me i go visual & look for oil traces, then check to make sure all caps & shraders are tight ... if none i will give option to customer whether it be a pressure, isolation, or dye .. or if they want to just leave it be ...i express my thoughts on that but still .... i use dye & have had a succesful rate of finding & repairing leaks, but really only as a last resort

    The article doesn't mention IR detectors - such as this one which is another option. I haven't used one personally but it looks like it might be a great option.
