Engine Oil Analysis
The Analysis takes into account.
E-Mail Steve at FSDT Racing for further information.
Oil viscosity change - important for power and bearing protection
Oil dilution by fuel - reduces oil's load bearing capability and viscosity. Rich mixture or in worst case leaking fuel pump or injectors.
Water content - internal corrosion and acid formation, From condensation of combustion by products.
Antifreeze content - Glycol attacks bearing material.
Acid content - attacks bearing material.
Alkali content - Gives an indication of how much the oil has in reserve to combat acid build up.
Soot content - gives an indication of combustion efficiency and piston ring sealing.
Wear metal analysis - The most important information. Gives a very clear indication of the level of each metal in the oil, wear of the pistons, bore, rings, bearings, etc. can be monitored and a warning of an impending component change or failure can be given.
Oil additive package analysis - Gives an indication of how the oil is coping with the demands on it. A decision on when to change the oil will be made to prevent use of highly contaminated oil.
I am able to measure your engine's wear against a database of other engines of the same type, make, size, power output, etc.
The cost of this service is £11.60 per sample for UK users. The service is abvailable to users world wide but at a slightly higher cost reflecting the higher postal charges.
