RE: the comments - About halfway through the OCI the camshaft synchronizer was changed, this is a stub distributor and they are known to squeak.

The other oils were all Mobil 1 but 5/20 and 5/30 have both been used and Iím not sure it was all EP.

Filter is here :Fram XG3600 - 8937mi

Ah - the Vulcan v-6! Great little engine.

I actually had to replace that same part in my old 1997 Taurus. Still have the timing tool to set it, although the car has been gone a while.

Keep an eye on things; let it play out. I suspect the metals will settle with time.

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
