I received some not so great news from my recent oil analysis - my Iron count was much higher than average. It looks like prior to this oil change, my iron count's highest number was 36.83. So 118.05 indicates a 320% increase of the highest.


I was a little behind on cutting my oil filter apart, but it agreed, there was a descent amount of very fine iron the filter stopped. This picture makes it look much worst than it really is. I talked to multiple mechanics and they said to run the engine for another 15-25 hours and then perform another analysis to see what could be going on.


I had a theory it could be my #3 cylinder slowly wearing out since at the annual it was the lowest compression - 68/80 (others were high 70's). Unfortunately not the case - it was right in line with all the other cylinders.
