Getting Fluids Analyzed

I have seen many posts about getting Engine Oil, Transmission, and Generator fluids analyzed. Where do you get this work done?

Many cat equipment dealers can do it for you. Cost is about $20 and usually a 24hr turn around time.

Blackstone Labs is one that I see referenced quite often and where I've had the oil from the 6.2L in my F-250 analyzed at about 20K miles. The standard analysis runs $30 and they will send you a free collection kit that includes a pre-paid mailer to send your sample in via USPS.

I have used Blackstone Labs for several vehicles. Normal price gives a result in a couple of weeks. They have an rush service if you are buying a vehicle. It costs more. ( not sure how much )

I use JG Lubricant Services. JG Lubricant Services is an IRV2 sponsor. The owner, Tom Johnson, is a former engineer with Allison and was instrumental in the development of Allison Transyd fluid. Have a question, call and sometimes Tom Johnson answers the phone. Very knowledgeable and will help with the sample submission process.

SpeedCo can do it while you’re there. Not sure they would unless you are changing the fluids... worth a call if one in your area.

I've been using Blackstone for engine and trans fluids. I'm pleased with them. There are others as well.
