The Motor Check Oil Analysis Testing Includes:
TBN - Total Base Number: Most labs charge extra for this, we include it. Total Base Number - this number tells you how much alkaline base reserve your oil has left. When your engine is running it creates Acids a by product of the combustion process. The base reserve comes with your oil in its additive package and is used against the acid. When your TBN is at or below 3 it is usually time to change your oil.
Spectral Results: The Spectral Exam can tell you if you have abnormal wear in your pistons, cylinders, bearings, bushings, crankshaft, valve train, gears, clutches and much more. This exam looks for 9 different wear metals and contaminant metals in your oil.
Viscosity Results: The Viscosity Exam is where we are measuring the thickness of your oil. By you informing us of your oil type(15W/40 or any other type) we will be able to see if your viscosity results are within the right range. For example, fuel dilution can thin your oil, where as coolant & soot can thicken the oil.
Oxidation Results: The Oxidation exam shows the degeneration of oil & the loss of its lubricity and serviceability.
Soot (Diesel Engines Only) Results: The Soot Exam for diesel engines is a normal combustion process of the Diesel Engine. This can cause an increase in the viscosity of the oil, a high reading in soot can indicate improper air/fuel ratios, defective air intakes, faulty injectors, or even blow-by.
Nitration (Gas Engine Only) Results: The Nitration exam for gasoline engines analyzes products that are formed during the combustion process and are often corrosive and can accelerate oil deterioration.
Additional: We also test for Water, Glycol (in most commercial anti-freezes), Fuel Dilution.
