Motor making metal?

Took my 2009 in for its first oil change this morning with 5000 miles on it.The mechanic found metal shavings in the oil. He said there was more than normal for the break in period but it could just be the engine getting broke in!He also said i should probably take it to the dealer to let them know about it and document it with the service department. Could there be something bad wrong with the motor or is it more than likely the motor breaking in? Thanks.

Kind of sounds iffy. Dought the dealer won't do anything with out proff.

Not sure if the 6.4's are having metal in the oil problems.

When I changed my oil for the second time the other day, I only found a small amount of metal on the drain plug. So I am not sure if that is normal or not. I think Blackstone is a good idea though. Being that it is your first oil change, I wouldn't worry too much.

It was a dealer trade from oklahoma and i took delivery of it and a week later dents started coming out in the hood when heat got to it! Come to find out the truck had hail damage and dealer tried to paintless dent repair them and it didnt work! So my dealer in texas threatened to sue them for not disclosing that so they ended up taking the truck back and gave me $2500 for my troubles and got me a new truck at dealer cost 2 weeks later! I thought it worked out in my favor but will see once they figure out this problem!
