EngineCheckUp Engine Analysis

Listed below are two set of instructions on how to interpret your EngineCheckUp test. The first is for gasoline / petrol, and the second is diesel. It is important to note that each test should be reviewed and interpreted by beginning with the Center Spot and moving outwards to the Outer Circle. The pictures accompanying the test are examples only, and your test results will be unique.

Causes
Consequences
Solutions
Engine Motor Oil Test Condition Canada
Inefficient air filter; defect in
injection system; problem
in exhaust or turbo; use of
incorrect fuel (Refer to
vehicle owners manual).
Sediment deposits in piston rings
may cause jamming of pistons;
carbon on valves and pistons
impedes cooling; narrowing of
clearances; higher friction in
pistons and bearings; higher fuel
consumption, poor emissions.
If your test results are
"moderate" or "poor", change oil
and filter. Re-test using
EngineCheckup after 100km to
see if the problem remains or
has been corrected.
Engine Motor Oil Test Condition Canada
Oil is oxidized or burned
from long oil drain intervals;
short term overheating; low
oil level; wrong oil type;
high level of sulphur in fuel;
high wear particles and dust
in oil.
Increased viscosity may cause
clogging, corrosion attack on
engine parts (lead, copper, oil
pump), high wear on piston rings
and cylinders; Lacquer-like
substance adheres to filters and
engine parts.
Service required. Change oil
and filter if test trends to “poor”.
Perform EngineCheckup after
100km to see if the problem
remains or has been corrected.

Water condenses in the
engine from running cold or
stop-and-go running.
Cooling water with coolant
leaking into the oil.
Fast oxidization and oil viscosity
change; increased engine wear;
acid formation corrodes non-
ferrous metal (copper, lead, tin).
Service requiredby specialist to
check thermostat, cooling
system, and engine seals.
Perform EngineCheckup after
100km to see if the problem
remains or has been corrected.
Engine Motor Oil Test Condition Canada
Unburned fuel condenses
on the pistons and drains
into engine oil due to poorly
tuned carburator, over-
loading cold engine, dirty or
clogged injector nozzles;
faulty ignition timing.
Reduced lubrication, increased
fuel consumption, thinning of
motor oil, danger of overheating,
higher wear on pistons, rings,
cylinders, bearings, seals,
gaskets. Negative effect on
performance.
Have the fuel system
checked by a specialist to
correct the problem. Change oil
and filter, then perform
EngineCheckup after 100km to
see if the problem remains or
has been corrected.
