another reason why I believe the shavings are from the oil Is because the shavings are curved like they came from a drill bit. I don't know if that's a logical assumption but that's what it looks like to me. You can see what appears to be Curled aluminum shavings in the pictures, the same aluminum shavings that were in the pictures the shop sent me while drilling the oil pan.

Honestly I was just trying to get some ideas on how to proceed. I showed my father in law the debris and he said just change the oil couple more times in a few undred miles, drive it, monitor it and wait for a response back from the shop. Guess that's about all I can do.

Those look like drill shavings in the filter. Maybe the shop is not telling you the full story. They wonít admit any fault and you canít prove any. Probably itís all trapped now unless some is lodged in the pickup screen. Iíd probably change the filter again and inspect it. If it looks fine, then try not to worry and enjoy the car since there is nothing you can do.

If those are metal shavings from something else, you are probably in deep trouble and will know very soon. Iíd say that is unlikely. Again, nothing you could do other than take everything apart to inspect - a lot of labor that I think is most likely not necessary.

That's about all you can do. The shavings don't look like they'd be from bearings anyway. Usually you would drill and weld the dipstick mod with the pan off the engine during the RB job. He probably didn't clean the pan very well.

Shop called me back and told me they put the pan though parts wash sprayed it out with air totally cleaned it. they said it was possible it came from the baffle in the oil pan. I wasnt aware that a stock oil pan came with a baffle. i thought that was an after market option used for retaining oil in corners when tracking. They told me to monitor it for another 2500 miles then bring it in and they would pay for an oil change.

I wouldn't add this to Rod beatings registry yet.

Please read the name of this thread again..
The name of this thread is => *Blown motors* Rod Bearing failure S65 Registry

There are already main bearing failures registered in OP's list @aus
I added this case anyway in personal database , because the situation is a blown S65 .
My personal list dates also from 2012 . But my list is much longer...
