spray all air components with a soap solution while under pressure . the leaks should show themselves

I keep a spray bottle in the garage that is full of water along with a small squirt of liquid hand soap. It's perfect for finding air leaks of any kind - hoses, tires, whatever you spray it on will bubble up right away.
