How do I take an oil sample?

Conklin recommends an oil analysis before extending oil change intervals. Follow the steps below to determine optimal intervals:
- First, you need to purchase the Prepaid Oil Analysis Bottle and the Oil Sampling Pump & Instruction Sheet from Conklin. (It is best to sample the oil when it's warm.)
- After putting the oil sample in the bottle, you use the mailer to send it to the testing facility.
- Change oil filter and take a sample of the oil at every recommended drain period.
- Change the oil when the oil analysis report states that it needs changed.
- Once you determine the baseline for oil drain interval, you may not need to sample the oil at every recommended drain interval.
- Always change filter at every recommended drain interval.
- Oil filters must be changed according to manufacturer's recommendations.
Conklin Oil Analysis Directions:
- First, hook the tubing up with the pump.
- Then, screw the sample bottle onto the pump.
- Remove the oil dipstick and place the tubing into the dipstick tube.
- Begin to pump.
- Unscrew the bottle when it is almost full to release the pressure and stop the flow.
- Complete the paperwork and mail it in.
