Engine oil condition testing

This is the first time I came across this type of Engine oil testing in Sri Lanka, I have seen many advertisements in USA some time back in Automobile Q&A forums many members requesting can a person know the condition of a used vehicle which that person had purchased recently. 

This is possible in many countries as far as I know. It is a very good test which cost about US $25/00. In USA many years back, you can send a very small oil sample with the payment within two days they give the result.

That gives the engine condition full report, I have read many reports. They all say if the engine oil is contaminated with water and it is in still good condition for many more miles. I remember the test had the Engine present condition, needs a repair.  and many more things of the engine.

I have not heard this service is available in Sri Lanka. Still you can try there are many private laboratories in Colombo, who do many tests. I do not Know they do this type of test.

Most popular one is Bamber and Bruese  Laboratory in Colombo, please do try them.

For heavy machinery engines in marine and offshore the oil testing is a standard practice where oil samples are sent for analysis at regular intervals. Based on the results the oil change intervals are extended. Normally it costs around 40-50 USD for one sample analysis. In automobiles it is more economical to do an oil change rather than sending samples for analysis.

But If you really need to do a oil analysis contact Chevron Lanka. They do provide these services.
