And I'm the guy with a low mileage 2001 that has high Iron, copper and silver content in the oil.

I'm remembering my first oil change where I cleaned the strainer in the frame. It had a bunch of of metal bits, did'nt pay much attention to it. I'm almost certain it was the first time it had ever been cleaned so i just figured it was production shavings left behind. (the frame oil reservoir is after the oil filter correct?) No way bottom end bits would end up in the frame unless there was a filter failure.

Next change I'm going to cut apart my filter to inspect and clean the strainer in the frame......
