Dirty IPR Valce Screen Question

I am in the midst of changing my IPR to cure my stalling out while driving problems, and after removing it I noticed that the filter was covered with garbage. I have seen this mentioned in numerous threads, but none mention what the debris is......While I'm in here and the turbo is out, should I be looking for additional problems that can be fixed at this time? Where is the gunk coming from and is it just gonna clog up my near sensor? I'm a new diesel owner and I dont want to do this again in the new future if possible, LOL! Anybody have advise on how to proceed?

Dirt in the oil not filtered, filter particle residue from disintegrating media, debris from a previous repair, very fine metal shavings, or o-ring particulate, or sludge from oil thickening.

Finding the source of the contamination and fixing that is een more important than what the contamination is. Untill resolved you will continue to have repeat problems.

90% of the time it's from a previous oil cooler repair that allows all the dirt in the valley to enter the reservoir under the oil cooler.

If you pull your oil cooler out and the screen is torn and the reservoir contaminated then you've found your source.

Has anyone proved that disintigrating filter media can be the cause for this? I have found dirt in the reservoir more times than not and never really wondered why or stopped to look and see what it actually is. Typically it looks like sand and grit like normal engine bay dirt.

Sinner is quite right I just want to add you not only have to watch what you may disturb and knock in there but also what the outside environment can do to you.

I once spent an hour meticieously cleaning a really dirty valley and a gust of wind blew up trash off the floor and from outside and made everything dirtyer than I started out with. Had to clean it all again.

I had one 2010 6.0 econoline recently that had never been opened up for any kind of repairs. When I pulled the oil cooler out the resevoir was full of debris and the new style steel screen had 2 torn windows. Like always I wondered why for about 30 seconds and continued on......BUT I know no one has ever been in here, so where did the dirt come from?

This fleet does use napa filters and this thread was the first time I'd ever heard that aftermarket filter media can come apart. I wonder if this is what caused the concern?
