I had been letting merchant's change my oil and rotate tire for me for a while, then decided that I needed to start to baby my 120,000 mile engine, and started using royal purple 5w20 and a k&n oil filter for each change. I changed it myself for the first time today, and found several metal flakes (1mmx3mm or so) and theyre quite disconcerting, considering every person i've spoke to says this is a detrimental thing. So, without jumping to any conclusions, I'd like some input. ive never changed oil in this vehicle before, so i dont know what merchant's has been doing, nor what they've been seeing when theyve drained my oil. The vehicle runs fine and I get around 30 mph on the hwy, no knocks or chatter, but I do notice the 4wd chatter when driving. any input would be helpful. Ive got pics of the flakes if anyone would like to see them.
