Why Oil Analysis for Engine Builders

Just like a dial caliper measures allows you to measure parts, used oil analysis allows you to measure engine wear without having to disassemble the engine. Utilizing atomic emission spectroscopy, used oil analysis reveals the amount of wear occurring within an engine and reports it in parts per million of each element. As such, increasing levels of tin and lead indicate bearing wear. High levels of aluminum indicate piston scuffing.

Fortunately, used oil analysis does not stop at indicating wear metals. Used oil analysis also reveals contaminants such as water, anti-freeze, fuel dilution and airborne dirt/sand.

Accordingly, used oil analysis provides engine builders with the ability to document the health of an engine before delivering the engine to the customer. By taking a used oil sample following break-in on the dyno or run-in stand, the health of the engine and contamination level can be documented. This documentation also provides a reference point for future samples – from either the same engine or from similar engine builds. Once a normal level of wear and contamination for certain engines has been established, it becomes easy to spot potential problems early on before they become much bigger problems. Catching problems early saves everyone time and money.

Why Oil Analysis for "Sealed" Spec Engines

Just like an engine dyno measures horsepower, used oil analysis measures engine wear without having to disassemble the engine. The use of “sealed” engines makes inspecting an engine anywhere from an inconvenience to illegal depending on series rules. Utilizing atomic emission spectroscopy, used oil analysis reveals the amount of wear occurring within an engine and reports it in parts per million of each element. As such, a “sealed” engine can be inspected without even needing to pull the engine out of the vehicle, and each SPEEDiagnostix report provides these details in plain English – no chemistry degree required!

Fortunately, used oil analysis does not stop at indicating wear metals. Used oil analysis also reveals contaminants such as water, coolant, fuel dilution and airborne dirt/sand. Contamination levels provide insight into the effectiveness of both oil and air filters as well as the tune up of the engine. High levels of fuel dilution indicate possible injector or carburetor problems, which are common with Ethanol blended fuels. Again, the SPEEDiagnostix reports highlight and provide guidance related to contamination in plain English.

Finally, used oil analysis provides trend analysis which reveals the “health trend” of the engine. When should the engine be rebuilt? Can the engine run another race? Trend analysis answers these questions and more. Once a normal level of wear and contamination for certain engines has been established, it becomes easy to spot potential problems early on before they become much bigger problems. Catching problems early saves time and money.

Why Oil Analysis for Classic Car Owner

 

Just like a yardstick measures length, used oil analysis measures wear. Similar to a doctor taking a blood sample, used oil analysis provides a “health report” on the equipment the sample was taken from without having to open up the equipment. For classic cars, used oil analysis documents the health of the engine, transmission and rear gear. Utilizing atomic emission spectroscopy, used oil analysis reveals the amount of wear occurring within an engine and reports it in parts per million of each element. As such, increasing levels of tin and lead indicate bearing wear. High levels of aluminum indicate piston scuffing, and each SPEEDiagnostix report provides these details in plain English – no chemistry degree required!

Why Oil Analysis for Motorcycle/UTV Owners

 

Just like a yardstick measures length, used oil analysis measures wear. Similar to a doctor taking a blood sample, used oil analysis provides a “health report” on the engine the sample was taken from without having to open up the engine. This allows motorcycle and UTV owners to know the health of their engines before heading out on a road trip or a long weekend off-roading.

Why Oil Analysis for Marine Applications

 

Just like a yardstick measures length, used oil analysis measures wear. Similar to a doctor taking a blood sample, used oil analysis provides a “health report” on the engine the sample was taken from without having to open up the engine. This allows powerboat owners to know the health of their engines before heading out on a poker run or a long weekend at the lake.
