Metal shavings in oil filter
08 F-250 6.4L, 48.5K miles fully deleted, recently changed over to Rotella T6 5W40. Upon oil filter inspection I noticed some metal shavings (non-ferrous?) imbedded throughout the filter itself. Only found 1 piece of white rubbed down thin flake, and 1 piece of ferrous metal as seen below. Nothing stuck to the drain plug magnet itself. This is the 3rd oil change since I have owned the truck, but 1st oil filter inspected. Truck was deleted at 38K miles. Blackstone reports seem to give ok feedback and can be seen below. Second report was done after contents found in oil filter, I am questioning if this oil is too thin over traditional 15W40 for higher HP tuned trucks? local shop stated possibly oil pumps low or high pressure breakdown, or any other possible concerns y'all may have that might be going on? Thanks for your time, Jayson.
