Coolant and oil testing services

Please recommend a company where I can send sample oil and coolant for testing.

I've used JG Lubricants for a couple years now. No problems and good service.

I have never used them but a friend does and I would recommend them. I have heard high recommendations about this web site and if they can't help you they can point you in the right direction. Good Luck.

NAPA sells oil analysis also. Less expensive than most. Around $13

Blackstone has been my go to for about 20 years. Mail containers and online reports and explanation of what the report means. Price has been competitive

I use Fleetguard labs for my needs. I purchase the kits from Geno's Garage.com; the oil/coolant samples are then sent into a local Cummins Lab near you. The lab for me is in IN. I have been doing this since new for over 10 years now

I also use Blackstone Labs out of Fort Wayne, IN. Attached is a link to their free oil sample kit. They provide a chemical analysis along with their summary on your fluid sample results.

I use Blackstone as well, but the OP would also like a coolant test, and unless I'm mistaken I don't believe Blackstone does those.

JG for me as well.
They have done several for me on boat diesel engine. Just started MH w them as well.
Managing reports and multi vehicles or eng trans coolant very convenient. Extra plus is ability to ask questions and get answers.
Recommend JG
