An oil analysis could be the key to prolonging your oil change intervals and maintaining a healthier vehicle. Oil analysis is a major  problem prevention tool. You can learn more about its benefits.

Oil Analysis for Longer Oil Change Intervals

You can get your oil analyzed regularly to find out in what condition it is. It’s a very interesting  knowing specifically how much or how long it takes for your oil to deteriorate. Even better, you’ll be going beyond your usual car maintenance, and in the process you could be saving your vehicle from mechanical problems. If you’re not sure what an oil analysis involves, how you can benefit from it, and how to get one, you’re in the right place. Amsoil4liny brings you this post to tell you about oil analysis in West Babylon.

What is an Oil Analysis?

For an oil analysis, a sample of the oil is sent to a lab to analyze it for its lubricant properties, any contaminants, and wear that might affect the engine, transmission, or hydraulic system. By performing regular oil sampling and analyzing you can establish a baseline of normal wear so you’ll be able to tell more easily if there is any abnormal wear or contamination.

The Benefits of Oil Analysis in West Babylon

Spot Problems Before They Fully Develop

Usually you notice a car problem when it’s completely developed, which means you have to get it repaired. Oil analysis allows you to know your car’s wear trends so you can spot anything that doesn’t fall within the normal operating range. You’ll be able to find the source of the problem because it causes further damage. Remember that to enjoy the benefits of oil analysis you have to take samples on a regular basis.

Determine Correct Oil Change Intervals

Although your owner’s manual indicates the appropriate time to get an oil change, having your oil analyzed will help you determine a more specific oil change interval. You’ll know the condition of your oil, and if it’s time to get a synthetic oil change and replace the filter too. You might even realize that you can extend your oil change intervals based on the results. Once the time comes for you to get your oil changed, save some extra money by getting a synthetic oil change. Your first choice when it comes to synthetic oil should be AMSOIL Synthetic Oil. When your oil change interval comes up, a good option to try is AMSOIL’s  Signature Series 0W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil. You can browse through their online catalogue to get all your supplies for your synthetic oil change, including new oil filters. If you’re the kind of person that needs more personalized attention, go ahead and call Amsoil4liny at (888) 826-7645.

Resale Value

If you’re considering selling your car, you might find it easier to do so since you’ll be able to provide a proof that your vehicle was regularly maintained. You should consider including the results of oil analysis along with all the other information on your vehicle to give potential buyers a full history of your car.

Save Money

You’ll probably find that you can eliminate at least one oil change a year because you’ll find that your oil is still in good condition. Even if you don’t eliminate an oil change, you’ll still be saving money because any problem will be detected before it can cause your car to break down. You will have time to fix the problem before it turns into something majorly expensive.

How to Your Oil Analyzed

The easiest way to get an oil sample is by using some of the oil that’s being drained at the time of your oil change. You simply have to catch a sample of the oil and store it in an appropriate container. However, you can also get your oil sample by suctioning oil through a plastic tube that goes down to your oil reservoir. Some oil analysis companies have really convenient kits, which include sample bottles, suction pump and tubing, and often a pre-addressed mailing container. All you need to do is get in touch with the company to ask for one. Typically the oil analysis costs around $10 to 30$ depending on your chosen oil analysis company. The price can be justified by considering the possible damages you could be avoiding. Usually you receive your results 2 to 4 days after the lab gets your sample. You can find a good oil analysis lab near you by looking for “Laboratories” in the Yellow Pages or online.
