140K 6.0 oil analysis, my first....

Okay, I did my first ever oil analysis on my 2004 PSD with 140k on the ticker, and 4250 miles on the oil. Here are the results, I had it done locally here in Knoxville, TN

Wear Metals:
IRON: 11
ALUM: 1
COPPER: 2
CHROME: 0
LEAD: 1
TIN: 0

Contaminates:
SODIUM: 51
DIRT: 10

Engine Soot:
NONE

Fuel: NEGATIVE
Water: NEGATIVE
Solids: NONE
GLYCOL: Positive
Visc: 152
Grade: 40W

Iron appears to be normal
Aluminum appears to be normal
Copper appears to be normal
Chrome appears to be normal
Lead appears to be normal

Sample contains a slight amount of sodium. Possible beginning of a coolant leak, however a trace of anti-freeze may be oil additive binder. Sodium should be low with 0.1% water in sample.

No water detected
Solids: New oil or no visible metal or dirt detected in this sample.
Sample has positive antifreeze, possible leaking oil cooler core, or contaminated sample.


I had two 4 oz. bottles of Rev X in 18 qts. of this oil tested. I don't know if that could be the oil additive binder referenced or not. And I don't have the OEM oil cooler block any more, I have an external air-to-oil radiator type cooler mounted behind my condenser.

So if those with more experience than myself would comment I would appreciate it. Thanks.

The sodium is absolutely the Rev-X man, I meant to give you a heads up on that when you were askin about adding it.

Sorry brother.

What Tom said. It will be in your system for a little while too. Last time I added Rev-X I waited two more oil changes and then got my oil tested. Sodium was still high.

No apology required my brother! Just looking for clarification before I panic and think I need HG's unnecessarily. Thanks!

Yeah you're good, I know the panic feelin!

Some of the Rev-X dealers will let you know about that before you buy it too.

I bought it from a place locally that builds custom transmissions. I thinks that's funny since the bottle says not for use in auto transmissions. Probably why they didn't tell me. They don't even know what it is really, just that us diesel guys come in a buy it all up.

I used a kit, but can do it right in there parking lot in the AM, and get results back that afternoon.

Not sure of any places in Nashville, but ask the local diesel shops if they take theirs somewhere local, that's how I found this place.
