IntelliStick says its dipstick replacement sensor allows users to monitor the condition of their truck’s engine oil in real time, virtually eliminating the turnaround time required for traditional laboratory oil analysis. The system monitors oil condition by measuring the additive conditions and oxidation/acid buildup in the oil, while continuously scanning for water/coolant and fuel intrusions, according to the company.

The dipstick sensor is programmed to communicate with any Microsoft Windows-based Bluetooth-enabled PDA, cell phone or laptop, resulting in an easy-to-read graphic called the “Kauffman Curve.” Users can minimize downtime and costs spent on premature or unnecessary oil changes, while increasing awareness of their equipment condition, the company says.

The IntelliStick is designed to be compatible with most gasoline- and diesel-engines. For more information, go to
