Re: UOA with Rev-X

Interesting. Goose, given the lack of water detected in the UOA, it has to be the RevX, not antifreeze in the oil. Very interested to see what the virgin sample of RevX shows. I don't normally go on .org, so it would be great if you could keep us posted.

The one other thing that jumps out at me is iron went up in your last sample. I guess that could be due to one of two things: RevX has iron in it, or your motor didn't care for it.

Best,
Jim

True, but I did double my OCI.

I saw that but I also noticed that the last one was higher at 14 than your first one at 9 with a comparable OCI. However, that could also be caused by changing oil brands. I'm not sure of your complete history.

Have you added RevX since your last oil change? Be interesting to see your UOA next time if you didn't.

True. That was with Motorcraft 15w40.

I have not added any more rev x. Going to get a UOA on the oil change after next.

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.

Re: UOA with Rev-X

Should be renamed to FauX miracle solution. Just another snake oil, it's actually probably just Rotella with some banana oil in that ultra expensive plastic jar.

I guess I can't comment on how it makes miracles happen for 6.0Ls, but it seems to be doing something to the oil to help it shadow a problem by making them start up easier.
