Did you know? Proper oil sampling for analysis plays a crucial role in determining your engine's health.
Used Oil Analysis' object is to examine oil samples from an engine, and break down the sample in parts per million, to determine the internal health of the engine. It is a quick, nondestructive way to gauge the health of an engine.
The levels of iron and aluminum can warn of piston and cylinder wear before a major failure occurs, bearing wear rates can be determined and action taken before the crankshaft becomes badly scored. Fuel dilution, anti-freeze leaks and water entry can be detected while they are still minor problems. The levels of contamination and combustion soot can indicate a restricted air intake system, ineffective oil filters, poor combustion or a rich air/fuel ratio.
It is only with consistent and repeated oil sampling that the health of your engine can be properly determined. We recommend having your engine oil tested every oil change.
