Oil analysis is a quick, nondestructive way to gauge the health of an engine by looking at what's in the oil. People use oil analysis for different reasons: to see if there are any problems developing, to see if their oil is working well in the engine, and to see if they can run longer oil changes. Get started with your analysis by ordering a free test kit.
Are you changing your oil often enough? Too often? Is synthetic oil really worth it? When it comes to the engine, it can be hard to know what’s going on without tearing it down…until now.LEARN MORE
Diesel engines can last hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of miles, but will yours last that long? Without oil analysis, it can be hard to know what’s going on inside the block. An analysis can identify insidious problems that, if left too long, could drastically shorten your engine’s life.LEARN MORE
Motorcycle engines tend to lead a much different life than the average car or truck. They often see hard use during the summer, and when the weather gets cold, many of them are stored for the winter.LEARN MORE
Maintaining a line is hard work. Industrial groups have traditionally changed oil on an elapsed-time basis. This can result in dumping millions of gallons of good oil annually, while doing little to prevent oil-related problems such as “leakers”: machines that leak oil from various seals, costing millions in new oil purchases and waste oil disposal. Instead of changing the oil based on time or visual appearance, let oil analysis provide you with the hard data you need to keep your machinery in good working order, with the added benefit of saving money.LEARN MORE
When a gasoline or diesel engine develops an unexpected problem, it leaves the owner stranded at the side of the road. When an aircraft engine develops an unexpected problem, it can have far more serious consequences.LEARN MORE
Sea-going engines are similar to their land-borne cousins, but they are quite different in their environment and how they are operated. Marine engines are often situated in holds with little air for cooling and little room for maintenance. Some are treated to splashing bilge water and use seawater for cooling. These are all factors to consider when analyzing the oil.LEARN MORE
Automatic transmissions ask a lot of the oil. Not only does the oil lubricate and clean internal parts, but it also functions as a hydraulic oil to operate various components.LEARN MORE
