Metal Check Oil Analysis Kit includes 1 test kit, all lab work and pre-paid USPS Postal shipping back to the lab for each kit. This oil analysis kit is used for determination of the condition of oil wetted engine parts, even on the first sample.
Not applicable for hydraulic fluid.
I have used AV-Lab kits for years .I like to pay the postage myself because the sample get there quicker.
I am so glad you have begun selling these...so much better than dealing directly with Av-labs and their ludicrous shipping charges.
Great easy health check on your engine. Gives you a heads up when your engine is starting to eat itself. I donâ€™t know why it is not a required part of every engine condition inspection.
convenient, great service. I use on every oil change.
Easy to use, the straw is to collect oil , not for drinking. Great way to see if you are going to need to start saving for a repair. the oil kit is great
If you want your sample reading returned sooner send it first class or priority mail. If you use the postage paid it will take much longer. Using First Class mail, I usually get my samples results within a week.
Great company. Great product. Metal Check has been used on my O-360 from first oil change at 25 hours to most recent at 2035 hours. Oil changes are at 50 hour intervals. Excellent product, technical support and timely turnaround.
Easy to use and provides essential information on the health of the engine. The postage paid version is very convenient.
Warning! Contains a Plastic Straw! May not be legal in your jurisdiction. But really this is a solid oil sample kit. Just make sure to take a sample mid drain. Oil analysis is great for establishing Trend Monitoring, meaning you have to sample at every oil change, not just once in a while.
No, this version includes the return US postage. It will only cover shipments from the USA. We recommend international customers, including Canada, use the "Return Postage NOT Included" version since they will need to take care of the return postage themselves.
Per the supplier: Yes, for everything but hydraulic systems. For hydraulic systems, use our part number 08-13479.
Once it is sent in, the owner can log in to their web site and get the results.
The return postage kit would go through the United States Postal Service (USPS).
Per the supplier: No, this is not recommended as it will cause a confusion in the testing lab. Please ship both samples separately.
