Welcome to the forum. For starters: 1. Did you check your oil pressure with a proper gauge? 2. What oil filter are you using? 3. Try a different oil filter with the same engine oil and take it up to 7.000 km to see if anything changes.

Yes, I remember several years ago when Castrol had the "Magnetic" and "Start Up". I bought a boatload of it on closeout. These oils are great when on closeout. Closeout meaning... when they don't sell well due to poor marketing. G

I had a 2012 Tacoma that started failing in 6 months as soon as the cold snapped. 3 dealer tests, 1 AZ, 1 AA, all said fine. Paid to replace out of pocket, problem solved. Not a lot of faith in testers.
Oil Additives
Thanks a lot you guys; I took your advice and drank some. Turned out to be nothing but a cheap bi-polar additive. ...Did I say that, or just think it?

I agree with the above. If and when I gave a bad sensor I'll let it go a while. I check the pressure manually anyway.

Your bearing preload might be incorrect so the rotor could be moving in and out on the spindle causing contact with the pad when turning. The contact would be at a slight angle so it may be causing only part of the pad to touch it which leads to the
