..."Obviously this isn't exact science. Does that mean it's worthless? I'd say it could be a valuable, affordable, and convenient diagnostic tool, but don't use it to replace true oil analysis. That is science.---Capt. Richard Thiel

     "Testing For What You Cannot See
You need to check, not just change, the fluids running your boat.

An engine-fluids analysis is like a blood test for your boat. The patient may look fine, and even feel well, but still have hidden problems."...

  "Testing the oil is one of the best ways to determine an engine's condition.Oil samples are regularly sent out for laboratory analysis during routine maintenance of commercial truck and airplane engines, and the results can yield a very accurate picture of how things are holding up....Although it's (EngineCheckUp) not as thorough as lab testing, it can certainly be used as an indicator of pending problems in a marine engine."

New Engine Test Simplifies Maintenance Scheduling
    Dealers and mechanics can waste a lot of time investigating an engine's condition.  What if diagnosing was as simple as a blood test?  Now it is, with EngineCheckUp, a one-step test requiring just a drop of oil.

          EngineCheckUp works on any 4-cycle gas or diesel engine, including outboards, inboards, generators, bilge pumps and cleaning equipment.  A single drop of warm oil applied to the test medium quickly reveals the engine's efficiency and health.  The presence of water, fuel, glycol, sediment, carbon or oxides are determined when test results are easily clarified by following the simple "how to" guide enclosed.

EngineCheckUp's convenience and low cost are appreciated by dealers and mechanics.  By being able to quickly and accurately monitor their customers' engines, maintenance is more easily scheduled.  Periodic, fast "engine checks" also provide value-added services to offer customers.

          Winner of the Innovation Award at the 2007 Marine Aftermarket Accessories Trade Show, the compact EngineCheckUp kit includes six tests packaged in a waterproof PVC pouch.  The kit has been tested for efficacy and claim substantiation by TUV, the internationally-recognized German testing authority.  Retailing for just $29.99 for six complete tests, EngineCheckUp offers an economical way for dealers to improve service and customer satisfaction.

 ..."I recently tested a number engines with known ailments, carefully following the instructions to the letter.  Results were as promised---in fact, even better. And it didn't take long. In each case I pulled the dipstick and held the tip two inches above the test medium, allowing a single drop of warm oil to fall onto the square of absorbent paper. More than a drop distorts results. ..."

“Save your Engine & Save Yourself”

By Zuzana Prochazka

“…a unique test kit that will diagnose the state of any auxiliary power station”. “If you’re worried about your engine or genset but don’t want to go through the expense and time needed of having your oil analyzed  in a lab, try the EngineCheckUp kit for a quick do-it-yourself diagnosis of what’s going on inside.”

“EngineCheckUp works with oil from the dipstick in any four-cycle gasoline or diesel engine including outboards, inboards and generators.”

    Dick Debartola thought that EngineCheckUp would be "some sort of toolkit". "...EngineCheckUp lets you conduct six tests to analyze the range of contaminants in your engine. The only "tool you use is your dipstick".

    "EngineCheckUp, a simple, on-the-spot test kit for engine oil that can help diagnose engine problems, took the award in the Boat Care/ Coating/Chemicals/Maintenance category. The kit is essentially a thick, paper-like material and accompanying "test key" that allows users to interpret test data. To use, place a drop of warm oil on the pad. After a short period the oil is absorbed, leaving behind telltale, concentric rings of residue that can indicate the presence of anti-freeze, water, fuel or other contaminants."
