Pulled a sample just to check. Lead is a little concerning. Car isn't tracked. I did put a bottle of Techron in it for a tank...can't imagine that would cause lead to increase.

Use this UOA as a baseline, re check after 5k miles with your new oil. If the number is the same or worse, HOUSTON WE "MAY" HAVE A PROBLEM.

Dont panic at this point.

Did you buy the car new? or used?

A little lead never hurt anybody. The engine is still new.

Stick with 5k for now and keep an eye on it.

That's a good and stout M1 0w-40 sample. Some of the recent UOA's I've seen have had the detergents and Zn/Mo/B quite a bit lower.

From previous Bitog MOU:

Lead is a soft, sacrificial wear metal used on surfaces such as bearings. Lead based Babbitt alloys. Commonly found in main crankshaft journal bearings and contaminated fuels. Other sources include leaded fuels and gasoline octane improvers.
