Standard Oil Analysis

Oil analysis is a quick way to gauge the health of an engine by looking at what’s in the oil. Our standard analysis includes:

Spectral Exam: Establishes the levels of wear metals, silicon, and additives present in the oil. Also checks for coolant. To see where the elements are coming from, see the Report Explanation page.

Viscosity: Determines the grade of oil.

Insolubles: Quantifies the percentage of solids present in the oil.

Flashpoint: The flashpoint is the temperature at which the vapors from the oil ignite. When the flash is lower than it should be, it shows a contaminant (usually fuel) is present. This test also looks for moisture contamination.
