'07 2.7 with 27k. Records show oil change at 13k. I just got the car and did an oil change. I cut the top and bottom off the filter and opened it up. I could see about 6 metal chips and a couple pieces of yellow debris. I looked under a 10X stereo scope and the chips are shiny silver and maybe .002-.003" thick and maybe .020" wide and .040" long and as I said there was about 6 of them. Anyone know if this is normal? I've seen gearbox chips this big on magnetic plugs but I've never looked at my oil filter before... Thanks, C.
