My Equinox has 2,000 miles now and I decided to change out the factory fill with any break in material that might be suspended. When I removed the filter I saw this little gem in the filter housing!

Probably aluminum since it wasn't attracted to a strong magnate. What are your thoughts?Just toss it or bring it into the dealership and let them know what I found?

Thanks.

Anything more IN the filter?

BTW, what direction does the filter mount? Why doesn't that debris fall from its position?

Good reason to change your oil sooner on the first change.
I don't think it matters what you do the dealership isn't going to do anything. It's under warranty so run it.
Nobody is going to tear a new engine down over that.

I think it's from the filter adapter housing itself. Look at that spot to the right of the wire loom--below the machined threads; it may have come from there.

Filtering efficiency looks to be 100% at 10000 microns.

Exactly
If it's not broken they ain't going to fix it. Maybe they will point out how well the filter did it's job.

It flows from the big hole in the back thu the filter then down the hole in the bottom.

Look at the oil pooling. This is not on an underside of an engine. Chevrolet likes to put their canister filters on the tops of engines, hidden underneath a bunch of wire harnesses and air cleaner tubing.

I guess the one grace is that this is between the filter and pickup and the filter did its job. It couldn't have passed through the pickup so it wasn't in the pan and therefore didn't come from the bearings or anything.

It makes me wonder though if the workmanship is this sloppy, what was past the filter? I thought they washed the heads and blocks after casting and machining them. This actually looks more like a wrapping or foil seal of some sort than some kind of machining debris though.

Ha-ha! Good that pieces didn't drop into the center hole when you took the cartridge out.

When I took the original spin-on factory filter off my Mazda, there was a sliver of metal about that size stuck partially through one of the entrance holes of the base plate. Even base plates capture 100% of debris that large! Over the next half-million miles, I found very few metal particles in subsequent filters, all tiny.

Is this the guy who touched your engine? It's not that he's not attracted anymore. He says it's him, not your engine.

Mount...not...flow ya wiseacre.

I would never purchase a vehicle designed with a filter that sits on top of an engine and requires oil to be pushed up to it.

Why? Because debris follows the path of this chunk of aluminum and does not remain in the filter.

The OP is vigilant in his filter changes to have spotted that...nice job!

I was trying to put a spin on that myself.

Nicely done.

I understand that they wouldn't do anything about it but if I document it at the dealership I might have some ammo later on if something goes wrong after the warranty runs out. But in the end it might not make any difference.
