Re: UOA with Rev-X
Very interesting, would like to see the VOA
on the Rev-X. Wear numbers look very good. All very low and most in the single digits. Most labs consider iron normal under 100 ppm, anything under 25 at 5,000 miles is very good. Like Jim said, the very slight increase in iron could be from:
1. the change in oil brand
2. reported wear numbers can be + or - 3 points in either direction, so don't take these numbers as absolute values.
3. Iron is cumulative, so the higher # can easily be from the higher miles on the oil.
Whatever the reason, there is nothing to worry about with 14 ppm iron at 5K miles. Wear numbers look very good. Now just make sure the Rev-X is causing the false positive on the coolant leak. I hope you post the VOA
results on the Rev-X, most diesel oils don't use Sodium in there additive package.
