Preventative Maintenance Fluid Analysis is an effective, inexpensive tool which provides information about the internal condition of the major components in vehicles and equipment.

OIL ANALYSIS is an accurate way to determine oil health, oil contamination and machine wear. It is a valuable preventative maintenance tool than can help identify potential problems before a major repair is necessary, while also potentially reducing the frequencies of oil changes.

SAMPLE REPORT

1. Take samples while the equipment is running and at normal operating temperature.
2. Take samples from the same point and using the same procedure each time.
3. Don’t sample directly after an oil change or after a large quantity of make-up oil has been added.
4. Take samples from flowing lines between the lubricated device and before the oil filter.
5. Clean around the sample point and flush an adequate quantity of oil through the sample piping to insure a representative sample.
6. Use the sampling materials supplied. They are clean and hold the proper quantity for the required analysis.
7. If samples are taken using a vacuum pump, use new hose for every sample to avoid cross contamination between sample points.
8. Don’t hold samples. Send samples to the laboratory as soon as possible.

    Saved Me an Oil Change

    Tom Ljungman (verified owner)

    The Oil Analysis data saved me an oil change. I spoke with the staff at Hot Shot’s Secret. They reviewed the oil analysis data with me and gave me recommendations. I was able to add some TBN Booster to my oil rather than change the oil. Plus I could see that everything else regarding the oil and engine were looking good. I plan to do the Oil Analysis regularly. 1995 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins.

  2. Question

    Desirae

    I just bought a 2006 Dodge with 5.9L Cummins. I could not get an adequate answer on when the last oil change was done. The oil level is good and black and wipes off finger with no trace left behind. I am going over everything with a fine tooth comb. Which oil test would be adequate to give me an idea of my current oil health and/or oil life left? Thanks.
