Need to get a very good oil sample and send it in. Alot of times they can tell you were the metal is coming from. Also, I do the old school trick of magnets on the oil pan. It does work. Just go on ebay and grab the strongest magnet you can get. Stick it on their and it gives you the warm fuzzy feeling....
I forgot to say I would do a oil change ASAP!

I am still trying to figure out where you would be getting metal in the fuel filter. There are few moveing parts in the fuel system. The pump is in a metal case but the guts are mostly plastic.

Is it ferros [be picked up with a magnet] copper or aluminum.

The failed injectors would not get anymetal in the filter. Once fuel enters the rail it does not return, it is a deadhead system.

So you are going to continue to run it like that? Surely that will cause certain failure. Why not try to find out what it is? A lifter would be suspect.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

It's not making any weird noises. Wonder if it was left over when the injector failed.
