    Hi all just wondering if anyone gets there engine oil tested?
    If so who do you use?
    How long do the test results normally take?

    And is it worth while doing a oil test say every 50,000kms just as a check up?

    Change it as per the books or more often, using the CORRECT oil per the books so no need for testing.

    You could probably "test" it yourself by pulling the dipstick, run your fingers along it and feel if it's slippery.

    I guess the question is what kind of info are you wanting to find out?

    Just curious about how the engine is going. I wouldn’t say I drive the mistress hard but just how I think she should be driving and I’m just wondering what’s going on in side really.
    One thing I have noticed is that it’s much more common in the US to do a oil test then what it is here.
