A positive result indicates the presence of glycol contamination, most commonly associated with a leak between the crankcase and the engine’s cooling system. Glycol contamination promotes wear, corrosion, lubricant breakdown and sludging. When oil analysis indicates water ingression or the presence of coolant additives, additional chemical tests are recommended to confirm the glycol contamination.
