    OP is probably looking at a nationwide company with agents in every states, who run around doing truck inspections and have vehicles equipped with oil testing machines

    Find a truck mechanic close by using Google call them up and ask if they will go do a ppi or dot inspection on the truck. I'm in the process of doing that now. The guy told me 300-400 to check it out.
     
    JoeyJunk, runningman0661 and OldeSkool Thank this.

    Awfully big gamble to put into the hands of a stranger, if it were me I’d be on a plane.

    I would want to be there with the mechanic having him show me as he goes along. I would get a better feel for the truck and he would probably do a far more thorough job
     
    JoeyJunk and black_dog106 Thank this.

    How about the local manufacturer dealer, see if the service manager can do something or recommend someone in the area.

    If he works it out, send a pizza delivery to the shop.

    Just an idea.
