Thumbs up Oil Analysis... where to get this done?

Any info where I can get this done would be great!



I tried to post it just before the server went down.

Try a Google search

I just did it just to make sure it still works. Yes it does. I suspect that you can come up with an endless list of companies that will do the testing for a small fee, will even supply you with a test bottle and mailing kit, and I think if you look around a bit, you might find some Lab who will do a "First Test" for free.

I like the analysis done by Mobil Accutrak.

You can buy the kit from Snider Petroleum, tel: 800-773-8357.

Tell them you want "extended drain" so that you get the soot analysis.

The data is well presented and easy to read.

For my Ford diesel, I've always used Blackstone Labs. Been using them for over four years and been very happy with them.

Thumbs up

Excellent! I'm trying to find out if my drain intervals are too long or okay as I do lots of freeway driving with the SD where oil temps are up yet I'm concerned slightly due to soot loading.
