Yes. The lab stated " Data indicates no abnormal findings. Resample at normal interval. Oil is suitable for continued use."
A bad report could show high wear metals (engine wear), high coolant intrusion, high fuel dilution, too high or low viscosity, acidity, poor air filtration, poor solids filtration, oxidation or high soot. The report would then list possible causes and corrective action to be taken.
