    I have used a similar product YEARS ago and it did work.

    Here is a cut and paste from the internet:

    We used the Tracer Products LeakFinder Kit, a product that won a POPULAR MECHANICS Editor's Choice Award at the 2000 Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week trade show. It's under $60 and includes a compact UV lamp with a flexible head, so it can be aimed into all sorts of underhood nooks and crannies. It also comes with a 10-ft. cord that has alligator clips to connect to the battery terminals, yellow glasses, and 1-ounce bottles of trace dyes for both oils and antifreeze/ coolant. You can buy individual bottles of any trace dye you use up.

    Picked the truck up Friday, WOW what a difference! It runs better than the day I bought the truck in 2019, totally solid shifting and grabbing now.
