I'd say get a magnetic drain plug from mf at the very least. start trying to figure out where all your oil is going. if you can solve that problem it'll probably show you why you have metal in there.

Ah, yeah...you might have bigger problems than just glitter in the oil.
it wasn't a lot just like few.
motor still run strong,as of why my motor had like 1qt or less because my rear main seal is going bad so it drip oil like 4 drops or so not like pouring and crap.

but i haven't change my oil for a long time thats why it was 1qt or less.

change that seal out, do an oil change, install a magnetic plug, and then pet her and say youre sorry. ha
Hah! Make it sincere too!


One quart!? If you've got a leak like that (which I've had worse),
you gotta add some oil even if you have to steal it, my man.

Pistons rings worns and maybe starting eating the sleeves ? Look also in this direction because that engine burns oil...

Transex is also right about the mains and rods bearings.

drop the pan......inspect pickup and all 10 bearings

Screw that you can't hurt a d-series. Refill the oil, run the bitch till she knocks. Keep on running the bitch until she locks up or throws a rod. I bet neither will happen :yes: I've had less than a quart come out. Not even registered on the dipstick and I ran it like that for at least another 2 months. Too lazy to buy oil, shitload of miles on the engine and I didnt care if it blew up. But that sob wouldn't give in.

^^ I hear you.
My old winter beater had a B7 in it and I did everything I could to purposely blow it up for the last 2 months I drove it. And she was still ticking the day I dumped her.

Mine burns oil. I've run it pretty low.

Never given me any trouble. Just keep it full of oil.

Sounds like you ran it too low and the rings ate away at the walls a little bit. Which will make it burn oil more.

Keep oil in it.
