this is what the report said. this was oil that i put in when i bought the truck in october of last year. my coolant levels have not changed at all. curious how it is getting in there.
JASON: Aluminum, chrome and iron, from the pistons, rings and cylinders, read a bit high after a
4366-mile oil run. Universal averages for typical wear are based on 5232-miles of oil use and the
presence of potassium and sodium in the oil points to some anti-freeze possibly getting into it and
causing the higher wear. 0.5% of the sample was fuel but that wouldn't be a factor in the wear. Air and
oil filtration (see silicon and insolubles) were normal. We suggest monitoring your coolant level and
stick with ~4000-mile oil changes for now. The TBN was 10.0, loads of active additive.
