Regardless of the type of motor or pump you have, there is probably some oil in it to make sure everything functions properly. Motors have a variety of moving parts in them, and the oil is used to lubricate the interface between these parts. This ensures that everything moves smoothly together. Even with the oil lubricating them, parts in the motor will sustain wear, and particles will get rubbed off due to friction. These particles will end up in the oil, so examining the lubricant can give you a better understanding of the current state of the motor.
Getting an oil analysis done on a fully functional motor can give you a baseline to work with in the future. This can help you quickly identify any problems that arise so that you can get them fixed promptly.
If your motor is already experiencing a problem, having an analysis done can help you pinpoint the issue. Examining contaminants in the oil and can give you a clear idea of what you're dealing with.
To ensure accurate analysis results, be certain the motor has reached its normal operating temperature before taking a sample. Once the sample is taken, the viscosity, fuel dilution and other factors will be analyzed. A particle count will be made to determine if there is excess grinding in the motor.
If you've had a previous analysis done on your motor, you'll be able to compare the results to see if there are any unusual levels. Otherwise, you'll be able to compare the numbers to what would be expected for your specific make and model.
