I always wanted to do an oil analysis and since I am planning on pushing the stock block a bit I wanted to make sure things were in check. How many of you all do this? Posted are my results.

My friend owns an oil change shop similar to Jiffy Lube and has oil analysis done whenever a customer comes in "claiming" his oil change blew their motor..

Most Local CAT dealers and truck stops will do these in house. I do these all the time at work. I did one on my Powerstroke when I bought it used.

The customers that I have that do them very frequently seem to be worry warts.

In a piece of expensive machinery or high performance race engine I could understand for personal use I dunno. I wouldn't want to know if something was starting to fail. I just check the oil manually.

-If Scilicate comes up your getting some sand/dirt in the engine....look for air inlet leaks

-If potassium comes up coolant is getting in the oil.

-If fuel is evident there is an internal leak (diesel).

-Tin/Copper...**** it I'm driving it, it not worth ripping the pan off now

-Iron/Chromium... ditto

For personal use. The way I see it. If shits gonna break its gonna break.

If I knew any traces of contaminants were in my oil I'd bite my nails and rip the oil pan off looking to find the problem. If I went that far I'd mine as well go all out. :rockon_ford

It is pretty neat tho....I would like to know how they "sniff" everything out of the oil.

I wonder if theres a place to get this done locally in socal. I've been meaning to get mine checked out, I really have a suspicion that something is not quite right with my motor, and I can't figure it out. Maybe something like this would give me a more solid answer of "yes something isn't right" or "no, everything is fine you're just imagining things".

It seems to run fine when you get on the go pedal, but at idle I'm not so sure sometimes.
