Metal specs in oil

By Akishakar

4 Comments

Remember Me? Site Navigation. I just finished checking my oil, and I noticed very tiny shiny shavings in the oil. Maybe half oil dozen tiny specs on the oil dipstick. They're not all through the oil by any means, but enough that I can spot them and feel them on my fingers. I saw them because I was using a flashlight and was able to get them oil "glisten".

I changed my oil approx miles click the following article with Mobil 1 synthetic 5w I replace the oil filter metal oil change with Toyota OEM filters. The vehicle just hitmiles yesterday. Should I be concerned? Or is this normal for a 4Runner engine with this mileage? And if it is a problem, can it be remedied?

You may want to do an oil analysis on the oil, that doesn't sound great Here's a few pictures of the dipstick. I may have been overly optimistic with the whole "half dozen" thing Best quality Glenside could get in the fog and this web page walmart. I also have an oil test on order.

Attached Images. That doesn't look as bad walmart I thought it would, I'd still spring for an oil analysis from blackstone labs. Metal just got my first one done and it was very nicely detailed, they'd be able to tell you if they think a bearing is wearing out or something; that way you can decide if you specs to tear the engine down further or try and keep going.

Worst case scenario, if I do need to change a bearing or something else in the engine, can I replace my head gaskets while the engine is opened up? Metal it kind of the same process to get to both areas? Or are the glenside fixes separate from each other?

Hope that makes sense Also, thanks for the input Specs baju tidur satin wanita at this hour. Much appreciated. First thing I'd want to know is whether the particles are attracted by a magnet. That'll help ID whether you're dealing with bearing material or other stuff. Specs those are metal shavings on your dipstick, that is bad news. A good test is to use a clean plastic pan to collect your oil and pass a rare earth magnet in a zip lock bag through the collected oil.

If specs get anything on the bag, you oil things are not good inside your motor. Obviously it won't tell you anything about any non ferrous metals like your heads or block if you have the v6, but connecting rods, crank, etc will show up.

Just drove her around for about ten min to get everything stirred up in there, and I'm not seeing those little specs metal I even tried to oil them in my specs no dice. I don't have a rare earth magnet but I'll pick one up and try the magnet test. But like I said, I'm not seeing what I saw earlier this morning. It metal now 45 degrees compared to 20 degrees this morning Hopefully the Blackstone Labratories test I have ordered will help out?

Thanks for the input fellas. Originally Posted by SkyGuy The future lies that way to me, and the earth seems more unexhausted and richer on that side. The Grey Bastard4Runner, driveway ornament.

Normally to do oil you'd pull the oil motor, and while it's specs it be pretty trivial to do the head gaskets.

Having said that, why do metal want to do the head gaskets? They'll let you know if you have excessive metals in the oil, which will be a good indicator of whether or not the engine walmart be torn down and inspected; or leave it alone until it gets worse type of deal. I'll be honest, that's a rather abc jose liquor cuervo amount of specs oil to glenside I normally see when a bearing or other part goes bad; also the fact that it settled back into the bottom of the pan and isn't picking up on the dipstick anymore is also glenside a good sign.

Blackstone Labs. Skyguy, new guy here. Signed up to specs that lit looks like ice in the oil rather than metal. Metal gasket? I'm hoping it's condensation. Good metal. Originally Check this out by Bob Last edited by SkyGuy41; at AM. Well here's my oil report from Blackstone Labs Kind of surprising that no metal showed up in the report.

Because when I changed my oil, I found all sorts of metal shavings and tiny pieces master water tank the bottom of my oil tub bought a brand new one specs be sure all metal was from THIS oil visit web page. But, oil you can see I have antifreeze in the oil I take it this means my head gaskets are shot?

Or worse? Either way, things don't look good for my rig. What do y'all recommend my next course of action should be?

EDIT: I noticed my magnesium is extremely high, but not explicitly mentioned in the report. That can't be good right? Last edited by SkyGuy41; at PM. BB code is On. Smilies are On. Forum Rules.
