I am not sure if the AMSOIL 0W-20 Signature Series is high in sodium but I would definitely be willing to give the pressure test a try or possibly even another oil change at a different lab like Blackstone to confirm if WIX is accurate.
I didn't see milky looking engine oil last time I did my change and it was pitch black. My coolant is green; did not see anything milky or brown colored. I did add some coolant but mainly to top it off.
Here's the oil analysis at 73.3k miles and it appears that there's coolant found in my oil. Not sure if I agree or disagree as I don't even know how to test for this but if anyone has any advice, please let me know.
So I did 3 drain and fills and 2 pan drops. Reason why I did a second pan drop was because the RTV wasn't sealing properly and I saw a puddle so I had to redo the process. I took the sample on the first drain and fill.
I did try to look into the locations a little more and I think a few years ago some BITOG members mentioned that the Ohio location is the fastest. I sent it there and it arrived last Friday and now it's still being processed. I'll let you guys know how long it takes but the account set up...
The baseline would be to get a starting point of unadulterated oil/fluid to compare against used fluid/oil to see how much additives is remaining. For example, if it started off at "10 moly/ppm" in the bottle but after performing another analysis and I see only "5 moly/ppm", then we can conclude...
Just wondering if it would make sense to sample brand new fluid (Transmission/Engine Oil) from the bottle and send it in for an analysis to establish a baseline of some sort? It does seem like a waste of money but it would be more accurate than comparing across universal averages I...
Is Polaris the only one seems to offer the most data for the price, assuming you bought it in bulk? It appears that NAPA/WIX only has TBN included but is there other alternatives that include TBN + TAN as well without paying $50/test?
